    The 'SmartDriver' product utilises technology that plugs into the car and monitors driving behaviour to reward safe driving with cash savings. The project team comprised 14 different work streams across business and technical functions and leveraged additional expertise from third party suppliers. Version 1 was a key partner for FBD in the 'SmartDriver' initiative taking on project management responsibility for the multiple work streams and providing core technical and development expertise.

     

    Commenting on the award, Justin Keatinge, Version 1 CEO said: "We are delighted to be recognised at the awards for our work with FBD. The success of the project is testament to the efforts of all involved and really illustrates what can be achieved through effective partnerships and teamwork."
