BPI/MS launches My Safe Drive App
Published on March 10, 2016
An average of 10,000 road accidents happens every year and is expected to rapidly increase in the years to come. This statistics sounds alarming as most accidents are caused by drivers’ error and distractions.
BPI/MS Insurance Corporation, a joint venture of the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) and Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Company, has released an innovative new smartphone application called “My Safe DriveTM”. Powered by iOnRoad, this app aims to promote safer and smarter driving in the Philippines.
Using a smartphone’s built-in camera, global positioning system (GPS) and smart software, My Safe DriveTM combines navigation, speeding, near-collision and lane departure alerts with driving analytics in a user-friendly app. It can also locate the parking location through GPS and reviews fuel consumption.
The “My Safe DriveTM” app is further proof that BPI/MS is committed to providing its clients and the public with reliable and innovative insurance as it launch the app by inviting the media to experience My Safe DriveTM in real time while driving different car models from partner automotive dealers (Toyota Manila Bay Corporation, Isuzu Automotive Dealership, Inc. – Alabang, Cavite, Pasig, Rizal, Honda Cars Makati, Inc. – Makati, Pasig, Alabang, Shaw, Global City, Hyundai Pasig – Bonifacio Motors, and Chevrolet Philippines – The Covenant Car Company, Inc.).
The media convoy travelled from Bonifacio Global City in Taguig to Nuvali in Santa Rosa, Laguna and the results are satisfactory. Media launch was hosted by car racer/TV and radio personality Sam YG, who gave it a thumbs-up on Instagram.
BPI/MS My Safe DriveTM is available for both iOS and Android devices. Download via the App Store and Google Play.
