Allianz Insurance’s claims service has received the Gracechurch marque for ‘outstanding quality‘, which recognises commitment to exceptional customer service.
The acknowledgement, announced in Gracechurch’s Mid-Market Claims Report, is an industry benchmark study based on the views of specialist claims brokers and independent research.
The marque recognises industry excellence based on customer satisfaction. On a ten-point scale of net satisfaction, Allianz was awarded seven or higher by 95% of those surveyed. The report is a leading independent study on insurers’ commercial claims performance, taking into account the views of more than 250 brokers over a 12-month period.
One quarter of those specialist claims brokers awarded Allianz either nine out of ten, or full marks, receiving the best scores in questions focussing on communication and empathy towards customers.
Allianz’s chief claims officer, Graham Gibson said:
“It is really pleasing that our claims service has been recognised externally by Gracechurch and received its marque for outstanding quality, for the second year in a row. Our claims team continues to do a fantastic job in this uncertain world, providing the best possible service for our brokers.
“This ‘outstanding marque‘ is a visible reminder that our expert claims team are consistent in providing a high quality service”.
In more good news, Allianz has been rated first among industry peers for customer satisfaction in the Gracechurch Report for Quarter Two of 2018, as voted by commercial brokers. This result sees Allianz ahead of other insurers, with 79% of brokers who had experiences Allianz’s service in the past 12 months stating that they’d recommend Allianz for its claims quality and service.
In particular, brokers expressed Allianz as strong on accessibility, speed of service, relationships, and our customer-centric technology.
