- For us, the Merkle employees are part of the team. That's why we face challenges together and have managed to successfully solved many complex issues in an innovative project.
The strategy 20.20 of the international insurance group aims at acting even more customer-centered, digital and agile. As a partner, we support Helvetia in the digital transformation of its online channels and create the base for a new and consistent customer experience. The digital appearance was redefined and a technically sophisticated customer portal was integrated into the website in order to address new customer groups and offer a better service for existing customers.
Experience & Commerce
The website as a strategic touchpoint in the customer journey was revised in 2017 and consistently focuses on the users. The improved usability allows users to individually adapt offers and products. They are addressed according to their needs via product-related and editorial content.
The digitalization of the order process also means less manual processing effort - which has a positive effect on Helvetia's internal efficiency.
Conversion optimization and personalization are the focus of the concept. Users are addressed in a personalized manner and are given access to relevant content at all times, where product-related content merges with editorial content. This increases the online turnover and we improve the lead generation.
The design is based on generous typography, the well-known and striking Helvetia colours, prominent branding and its own image world, which is used extensively. It is experienced by customers and lived internally. This is ensured by a comprehensive living styleguide incl. pattern library based on Frontify. The result: a consistent brand experience and a fresh look across all touchpoints and country websites.
Following the relaunch of the brand presence, the task was to integrate a new customer portal for policyholders and pension fund policyholders into the website.
The degree of technical innovation in this project was extremely high. But in close cooperation, we took Helvetia to the next technological level.
The user guidance offers an uniform user experience. Helvetia uses interactive navigation elements to enter into a direct dialogue with users. Already through the homepage you can reach a desired topic with only a few clicks. We focus on a personal approach and the consistent personalization of the content. Users can use practical self-services, online transactions and calculators. A personalized area enables customers to view contract-relevant information at any time or to order and download documents.
Both the website and the customer portal are based on a flexible technical platform. It combines the strengths of the Adobe Experience Manager and other products from the Adobe Marketing Cloud with information and functions from diverse, historically grown backend systems in various insurance sectors in one central portal. Through direct backend integration, contact requests, for example, are stored directly in the CRM.
