Prudential awarded New Community of the Year 2017

Prudential Singapore has been recognized as one of the leading customer-centric organisations in the region after being awarded the 2017 Asia Pacific New Community of the Year by Vision Critical.

The Asia Pacific New Community of the Year Award, started in 2016, acknowledges companies that demonstrate the best use of customer intelligence to positively impact the business, within the first 12 months of launching a new online community platform.

In July 2016, the life insurer launched an online community, PRU for You, bringing close to 4,000 customers onto a single portal, where they can share ideas and provide direct feedback on Prudential’s products and services. In turn, the community offers Prudential greater insight into potential coverage gaps, allowing it to address customer concerns and needs in a shorter span of time.

Ms. Angela Hunter, Chief Customer Officer at Prudential Singapore, said the company’s commitment to connect constantly with the needs of its customers is a key driver of its digital innovation and investments.

“The PRU for You online community has completely transformed the way in which we engage with and collect customer feedback. By harnessing the power of technology, we have been able to integrate community insights directly into our product development process, allowing us to create products and solutions that best meet the needs of our customers, improving their experience with us.”

Mr. Peter Harris, EVP and Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Vision Critical, said: “Prudential Singapore’s use of customer intelligence to drive new product innovations and guide decision-making is among the best I have seen across businesses in Asia Pacific – a truly customer-led brand that is turning customer insight into actionable business results.
