Daren Wang, CEO of Insurance, commented: “ThingCo is a perfect partner for Insurance. ThingCo’s world leading knowledge, experience and expertise in the practical application of telematics combined with our online capability and commitment to grow, will help to ensure Insurance achieves its goals fast.”
