Autoglass®, the UK’s leading vehicle glass repair, replacement and recalibration specialist, has announced a new three and a half-year contract with Ageas, one of the largest car insurers in the UK.

The new partnership which went live on November 1st will see Autoglass® offer its glass repair, replacement and recalibration services to Ageas customers across the country.

A key factor in Autoglass® being awarded the contract is the company’s forward-thinking approach to the customer journey and digitalisation. In order to keep up to date with evolving consumer needs, Autoglass® has built its customer journey stages around customer activities, giving customers not only the ability to book a service seamlessly but to also interact with them through digital channels.

Autoglass® was also chosen as the preferred supplier due to its market leading Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) recalibration proposition, which is already compliant with the new Insurance Industry Requirements (IIR) set out by Thatcham Research.

Neil Atherton, Sales and Marketing Director, Autoglass® commented:

“Securing a new account win with one of the UK’s largest car insurers is a testament to our excellent team and industry-leading ADAS proposition. At Autoglass®, we are always looking to boost our customer journey and ensure our advanced digital platforms provide a smooth customer experience.  We offer a co-branded landing page functionality for Ageas customers giving them a seamless and better online experience when choosing to book online with us via Ageas websites. We are looking forward to working closely with Ageas to serve their customers up and down the country and provide a first class customer journey both online and in our Centres.

Robin Challand, Claims Director, Ageas Insurance commented:

“We selected Autoglass® because we are confident that their established ADAS proposition will offer a safe and efficient service to our customers. The dedicated support hub offered by Autoglass®, along with the company’s innovative approach to the digital customer journey, was another fundamental factor in our decision to select Autoglass® as our preferred supplier”.
