UPDATE: ArvatoConnect highly commended at the Digital Technology Leaders Awards

7th July 2023 · Arvato · News

We were shortlisted for two awards at the 2023 Digital Technology Leaders Awards, for ‘Best Automation Project’ and ‘Best Not-For-Profit Digital Project’ – and following the award ceremony this month, we’re ecstatic to say we were ‘highly commended’ for the ‘Best Not-For-Profit Digital Project’.

This follows a year of high performance where we’re blending technology with sector and process-specific expertise, to deliver transformative results for our clients, their customers, and their employees. The awards ceremony, which was held on 6th July, celebrated the talent and achievements of organisations, teams, and individuals who are excelling or demonstrating real innovation within the digital technology leadership space.

We’ve been recognised for our digital transformation partnership with Wales Air Ambulance Charity, which includes designing and building an end-to-end digital intelligence automation solution. This is transforming how the Charity runs its back-office, retail, and contact channel operations, to deliver increased efficiency and ensure its limited funds can be used where they are needed most. Since implementing this, they have seen significant benefits, including:

  • Reduction in the time the charity’s team spends on daily BACS reports by 50% and time spent on adding new members to the lottery draw by up to 92%.
  • Automating membership cancellations has given half a day a week back to the business allowing employees to focus on more value-added tasks.
  • Sending new member letters via email instead of post has saved the Charity up to £20,000 annually and is reducing its reliance on paper. Overall the process is enabling them to be more environmentally friendly.

This award recognition follows another of our automation partnerships with Fremantle, one of the world’s largest content production and distribution companies, being shortlisted for the ‘Best Newcomer’ category at the Blue Prism Excellence Awards, and recently being named finalists at the European Contact Centre & Customer Service Awards (ECCCSAs) 2022 for ‘Outsourced Contact Centre of the Year’ and ‘Most Effective Employee Engagement Approach’.

James Towner, Chief Growth Officer, ArvatoConnect, commented:

I’m very proud that we’ve been shortlisted for such prestigious awards – and to be highly commended for the ‘Not-for-profit Digital Project’ is absolutely outstanding!

Being named as finalists for not one, but two, Digital Technology Awards is a testament to our dedication to innovation and digital transformation, and to shaping our own, and our clients’ businesses for the future.

Thank you to the people and teams involved who have been instrumental in achieving these great results – and this recognition.

Sue Barnes, Chief Executive, Wales Air Ambulance Charity, said:

Arvato has approached our transformation as a true partner – working closely with our team to help us identify where we can unlock the largest benefits, as quickly as possible, and training us so that we have the knowledge and power to run these solutions ourselves. Their business strength is to provide technology-based back-office outsourcing solutions with personalised team support every step of the way.”
