Nationwide has long been committed to encouraging safe driving, and it’s this commitment that led to our integration with Amazon Alexa.

Nationwide SmartRide members who use the SmartRide plug-in device can now use Alexa to access personalized driving information.

Members can ask Alexa about their driving habits and get information on a variety of statistics, including mileage, hard braking and accelerating, idle time, nighttime driving and discounts. For example:

  • “Alexa, ask Nationwide how many miles I’ve driven.”
  • “Alexa, ask Nationwide to check my nighttime driving.”
  • “Alexa, ask Nationwide what my final discount is.”

Through SmartRide, Nationwide’s usage-based insurance program, the company collects critical pieces of data that have been identified as leading contributors to auto accidents.

Providing drivers with information about their driving habits can help them adjust their habits behind the wheel, making roads safer for everyone and providing the potential for lower premiums.

“SmartRide is an industry-leading effort to help make us all better and safer drivers,” said Sam Rassekh, vice president of digital optimization for Nationwide.

“We put our members at the center of every decision, so our commitment to digital advancement creates a better experience with Nationwide and the valuable services and offerings we carry.”
