Allianz’s national account managers engage Original Equipment Manufacturers to conduct joint training sessions with account managers at dealerships. At these sessions, dealers can better understand the benefits of Allianz’s Premier Motor Insurance policy and how they can introduce the policy’s features to their customers. The aim is to show that while we may sometimes be beaten on price, our value proposition is second to none.
Lisa Tran, one of Allianz’s Victoria-based national account managers, says the training sessions offer an opportunity to show how Allianz’s Premier Motor Insurance policy stacks up against our competitors’ policies.
“It’s easy to make a distinction between what Allianz has to offer versus the other major insurers,” says Tran, who conducts approximately 20 training sessions every year. “Plus, it’s an opportunity to understand first-hand what concerns our dealer partners have, if any,” she adds.
Tran says the training sessions are a chance to reiterate the benefits of Allianz insurance:
- Importance of genuine manufacturer parts – We offer new genuine parts for repairs (where available).
- Choice of repairer – We offer choice of repairer at no extra cost.
- Selected repairers – If customers do not have a preferred repairer, they can access one of our selected repairers, which meet Allianz service standards.
- New-for-old replacement within the first three years – An available replacement vehicle is provided by the dealer selling the insurance policy. This can also help dealers continue to build their relationship with their customer.
- There is no extra cost to pay by instalments – Our customers can pay by the month, whereas other insurers may add a loading1.
- Staying on the road following theft or a not-at-fault collision – We offer customers a substitute vehicle at no extra cost to keep them moving after their claim2.
Ultimately, Allianz and our dealer partners share the same goal of providing a better experience and nurturing long-term relationships with customers.
“While price will always be a consideration for customers, the coverage offered by our policy matters too, as does Allianz’s strong brand and service offering,” Tran say
