Sabio congratulates Allianz Direct on its win at European Contact Centre and Customer Service Awards


Allianz Direct’s success in delivering contact centre innovation at software speeds results in prestigious ECCCSA 20th edition Innovation and Technology award

Sabio Group is delighted that its customer Allianz Direct won a major Innovation and Technology Award at last night’s prestigious European Contact Centre and Customer Service Awards (ECCCSA) virtual ceremony.

Allianz Direct has committed to an agile approach across its entire European operations, and the company’s contact centre transformation initiative was recognised as the ‘Most Effective Business Transformation Programme in Customer Service’ by the ECCCSA 20th edition judges. Working with Sabio, Allianz Direct has successfully deployed a disruptive customer experience (CX) solution powered by technology from Twilio, Amazon Web Services and Azure. Supported by a flexible software development team, the Allianz Direct team is now able to deliver contact centre innovation at a revolutionary pace.

“For Allianz Direct, transforming operations to make insurance products and services as easy and intuitive as possible for our customers across Europe is critical. We have designed our business as ‘a technology company with an insurance licence’, and we’re focused on building the future of European insurance,” explained Allianz Direct’s CEO Bart Schlatmann. “Winning the ‘Most Effective Business Transformation Programme in Customer Service’ at the ECCCSA 20th edition awards is a proud achievement for our teams, validating our clear agile vision and our determination to place CX at the top of the Allianz Direct agenda.”

“Sabio is proud to be associated with the European Contact Centre and Customer Service Awards – a programme that celebrates those organisations and individuals that are setting the standard across our industry,” added Jonathan Gale, Sabio Group’s CEO. “Adopting an agile model and taking advantage of the latest programmable contact centre approach means that Allianz Direct can innovate at software speed. It’s great that their commitment to innovation has been recognised by the ECCCSA judges.”
