Our objective is to empower clients in managing risk at all levels, ranging from cyber resilience and employee and fleet safety to business continuity. We are particularly excited about our partnership with Samsara, as it aligns perfectly with MJ’s mission to infuse technology and analytics into our service platform,” affirmed Mike Janicki, Vice President Risk Services. “Leveraging this data enables us to guide clients in making informed business decisions, further optimizing their risk profile.”

Samsara’s platform spans vehicle telematics, smart trailers and connected equipment, video-based safety, and mobile applications and workflows. With insights from Samsara, insurance carriers and their customers have the increased visibility they need to reduce risk, improve driver safety, and streamline the claims process.
