Global telematics company, The Floow, has been named Economic Disruptor of the Year for the North East Region at this year’s Spectator awards. They were chosen from 150 nominated across the UK as the most innovative and disruptive company in the North East region, due to “their great potential to scale-up”.

Client Development Director at The Floow, Zoe Sullivan, was presented with the award by Spectator chairman and political broadcaster, Andrew Neil, who hosted this “celebration of UK creative entrepreneurship” at The Postal Museum in London earlier this month (13th November).

This award celebrates The Floow’s mission to make mobility safer and smarter for everyone by using the data collected from smartphones and OBDs to provide unique insights into driver behaviour and risk patterns to insurance carriers and their customers. 

Their innovative nature has seen them develop products, such as FloowDrive and FloowFleet, which remove the time, cost and complexity barriers from this technology allowing telematics’ benefits to be utilised by a greater number of insurers and delivering fairer and more accurate premiums for their policyholders.

Speaking about this recognition, The Floow’s Chief Innovation Officer and Co-Founder, Sam Chapman, said; “We are delighted to have been recognised as The Spectator’s Economic Disruptor of the Year for the North East region. Since inception, The Floow has focused on creating solutions which disrupt traditional markets, such as insurance, to make mobility safer, smarter and fairer for everyone.

“We are extremely proud that our work has been recognised for its innovative nature and the wide-ranging benefits it offers our insurance clients and their customers, including unique insights which deliver significant competitive advantage.”
