Press release: optimise-it expands digital customer service for ARAG

Cologne/Hamburg, January 14, 2019           Optimise-it, the live chat expert from Hamburg, and the ARAG Group are jointly expanding digital customer service for Germany's largest family-owned insurance company. In the future, ARAG will focus on a combination of live chat, messenger and high value customer support. Customers will thus have an additional opportunity to contact ARAG quickly and easily in the event of a claim or need for advice.

The technically flexible "Realperson® Chat Suite" from Optimise-it is used. The communication platform is individually tailored to the highly complex requirements and corporate design of major brands through integration with CRM and other third-party systems. Conversations between customers and companies are optimized for a better user experience and effective staff deployment. In addition, it is possible to integrate, manage and optimize media such as images and videos as well as chatbots and voice technologies into the flexible platform. By using the "Talent & Technology" principle, response times to customer inquiries can be shortened and a consistently high-quality customer experience can be created.

"The optimise-it solution convinced us with its flexibility and modularity as well as with its comprehensive set of key figures and the implementation of the highest data protection requirements," says Dr. Ina Nadja Baumann, Senior Vice President Central IT-Steering at ARAG. "We offer our customers an effective and up-to-date opportunity to get in touch with us and can guarantee them fast response times. We are pleased to be able to strengthen our service offering in the long term".

Customers have been able to use the new live chat system on arag.de since the end of November.
