Aviva partners with SimpliSafe

Aviva has entered into a partnership with SimpliSafe to provide commercial insureds with a wireless security system.

The system includes smoke, water and temperature sensors, a range of security sensors and an HD camera.

Gareth Hemming, chief distribution officer at Aviva said: “Our partnership with SimpliSafe highlights our commitment to helping customers prevent bad things happening. Our role as an insurer is to be there to support individuals and businesses in the event of a claim, but we want to do more to help stop them happening in the first place.

“We’ve invested in this proposition because we believe it’ll deliver in helping our customers to potentially reduce the quantity or severity of claims, limiting unwanted disruptions in the future. Through the data that Aviva capture, our long-term ambition is to fundamentally change how we write business for those customers who we know to be a ‘better risk’ based on their adoption and utilising of security devices to protect their business.”
