British commercial insurance provider NIG has formed a strategic partnership with insurtech company Flock to introduce digital motor fleet insurance.
Under the collaboration, the companies will work together to implement a data-driven, digital approach for motor fleet insurance.
The companies plan to offer a fully digital insurance management portal and provide incentives for promoting safe driving practices.
The partnership also includes providing comprehensive safety and claims workshops to all the customers.
The joint effort is aimed at helping companies expand their existing risk coverage capabilities within multiple commercial motor segments.
Flock said that the latest partnership marks a key step towards its growth, and comes shortly after the company raised more than £30m ($37.7m) in its Series B funding round held earlier this year in February.
