October 21, 2022

PITTSBURGH, PA. Oct. 21, 2022 – Idelic, a technology leader in the commercial fleet industry, today announces two leadership hires to support their new strategic focus on fleet insurance solutions. 

Idelic is adding over three decades of collective insurtech experience to their executive team with the appointments of Brian Filip, Chief Technology Officer and Michael Gramm, Senior Vice President Insurance. Their expertise will further accelerate Idelic’s focus on understanding insurance-related challenges in the industry and building solutions that produce better insurance outcomes. 

Brian Filip is an experienced global insurtech executive bringing product and engineering expertise from Solera, Explore Information Services, and others. He has led product, technology, and data teams to build products for the global automotive and property insurance industry. His focus is on further developing Idelic’s best-in-class Driver Safety Playbooks and the AI/ML capabilities of Safety Suite® to better predict driver risk and provide fleets actionable insights within their data. 

Michael Gramm joins Idelic with 20+ years of commercial auto underwriting experience from Hallmark Financial Services Inc., The Navigators Group, Inc., XLCatlin, Markel Corporation, and others. Mike has spent his career launching insurance products, building underwriting teams, and developing profitable books of business. He is now leading Idelic’s insurance strategy and partnerships.

“Fleets are increasingly concerned with managing rising insurance costs. Insurers are evaluating not just telematics, but in addition, want a comprehensive view of loss history.’ said Nick Bartel, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Idelic. “With our first-to-market combination of Safety Suite® and proprietary Driver Safety Playbook, fleets reduce crashes by 20% and lower losses in the first year, giving them the data to negotiate better rates faster.’ Bartel continued, ‘Bringing additional insurance expertise to the Idelic team will accelerate our development of solutions that help fleets obtain the insurance outcomes they deserve.”

Idelic’s recently announced partnership with Nationwide, to provide their customers preferred Idelic Program pricing and exclusive benefits, is one example of insurers acknowledging Idelic’s ability to help fleets reduce crashes, lower losses and ultimately become a smarter risk to insure.

Idelic’s momentum is strong. Being recently recognized on the 2022 Inc. 5000 list and seeing 63% customer growth in the past two years, aligning product innovation to better insurance outcomes is core to attracting and retaining a growing base. Idelic recently introduced Discover Dashboards, the Idelic Driver Safety Playbook, and new Professional Development Plan (PDP) templates into Safety Suite®.

  • Idelic Driver Safety Playbook and PDP templates help fleets address risky driver behavior using Safety Suite capabilities including assignable PDP modules. Each PDP includes instructions on how and when to coach drivers, manager talking points, and recommended timelines and tasks. 
  • Discover Dashboards enable fleets to visualize their data, identify the trends and prevalence of specific risk factors, and take action before a crash occurs. 

In an economic climate where preserving cash and finding expense reduction is top of mind, lowering a fleet’s insurance costs is critical. Idelic plans to continue to invest in people and technology that support their mission of improving insurance outcomes for the industry.
