Capita Life & Pensions awarded for outstanding customer service provision for Zurich

16 May 2017

Capita Life & Pensions has been awarded the “Excellence in Outsourced Customer Service” award for its work with Zurich, at the prestigious Global Sourcing Association UK’s Professional Awards.

Capita has delivered frontline customer service to Zurich’s two million customers over the last 10 years.

The award recognised Capita’s “Voice of the Customer” programme, which has been designed to enhance the way Zurich provides customer service and feedback to its customers. The collaborative, customer focussed programme has delivered customer benefits including:

  • Customers now receive their payments at least five days quicker than before
  • Manual calculation cases are now completed in a maximum of 10 days
  • Speedier payments to customers and no cheques lost in the post
  • Improved staff satisfaction through supporting customers with quicker claims
  • Reduction in paper costs of 18% due to the introduction of email communication and the increase in telephone claims
  • Reduction of at least 5 days on the overall average end to end process time

Nikki Moss, Customer Services Manager, Capita Life & Pensions, said:

“The GSA UK’s Professional Awards recognise talent and application of best practice across the sourcing industry, and we are rightly proud of the achievements our partnership with Zurich.

"This latest accolade is further proof of Capita’s commitment to delivering outstanding customer service for our clients.

Zurich’s strategic aims were embedded into the service we helped to provide, and we recognised the need to move from simply hearing what our customers were saying to truly listening. This has been key to the success of the Voice of the Customer programme.

Now in its fifth year, the Global Sourcing Association awards celebrate the talent of individuals and teams who deliver significant value to the global sourcing industry.
