CAPE MAY, N.J. – [Oct.19, 2021] – eDrivingSM, a Solera company, and leading global provider of digital driver risk management solutions, is helping commercial drivers save money on personal car insurance by incorporating Jerry into its award-winning smartphone app, MentorSM. Jerry first launched in 2019 with its AI- and machine-learning-based car insurance comparison service, and today serves more than 1 million customers across the United States as a licensed insurance broker.
For Mentor users, Jerry is available in-app, and provides customized quotes from more than 50 insurance carriers in 45 seconds.
“We’re delighted to be expanding our value proposition to clients by offering Mentor with Jerry to those organizations keen to further engage their employees by helping them source personal insurance savings through their driver safety program,” said Ed Dubens, CEO/ Founder of eDriving. “This is a fantastic way for companies to engage all employees, not just those who drive for work purposes, in their safety program, as well as family members too.”
Jerry customers find competitive rates, with the same or better coverage, averaging $800 annual savings on their personal car insurance premiums. Customers can also bundle their auto with home and renters insurance for even more savings.
If a driver finds savings and decides to switch, Jerry handles the paperwork and cancels the prior policy. Mentor app users who request insurance quotes through Jerry do not receive emails, calls, or pop-up ads from third parties.
“Jerry has brought ease and simplicity to comparing and buying car insurance,” said Alex Chew, Head of Partnerships at Jerry. “The Mentor app is the ideal platform to offer that convenience to those who drive for work purposes and their families. Mentor already helps drivers embrace safety, and we are pleased to extend the offering by saving drivers time and money on personal car insurance too.”
