In 2014, ProSight invested heavily in the use of in-cab camera technology as a part of their new insurance package for transportation customers.[7] These cameras monitor and record events such as crashes, hard braking, and lane departures to improve safety and reduce the corresponding accident claims.[8]

In May 2014, the firm announced an expansion of their services into the energy market with insurance programs focused on propane and fuel dealers, oil and gas contractors, and solar energy contractors.[9]
