London, 24 November 2016Arthur J. Gallagher's UK Digital and Education teams scoop Wireless Wizard award
Combining the talent of Arthur J. Gallagher’s digital team and the customer-focused specialist knowledge of its UK Public Sector & Education practice proved a winning formula at Insurance Post’s Digital Insurance Awards 2016.
Gallagher scooped the ‘Wireless Wizard’ award — the Best Business Project Dependent on Mobile Technology — for the success of its TravelCert app, which was developed in direct response to challenges faced by university sector clients. The app delivers a modern, practical solution that benefits multiple stakeholders at the same time. It dramatically cuts the group travel administration burden faced by large higher education organisations, which can have thousands of staff and students journeys to manage every single year, while countering the difficulties faced in providing accurate real-time data to insurers.
In less than a year TravelCert saved over 2000 hours of manual processing, freeing up insurance teams to work on other valuable projects, and enabled those travelling to be in full control of their travel details with immediate access to any assistance they may need. Organisations can quickly and easily identify the number of travellers and their locations at any one time, while the app automatically generates and issues all travel certificates within the scope of the group travel policy.
Vivek Banga, Chief Digital Officer at Arthur J. Gallagher, collected the award from Post’s Director of Content Jonathan Swift, who commented that “in a competitive and closely fought category” TravelCert was acclaimed the winner and “drew praise for being a mobile app that cut down on administration, whilst simultaneously collating information into a downloadable database of robust, reliable and real-time data”
