”I was feeling delicate after a theft and dreading the claims handling process. I was pleasantly surprised for the process to be rapid yet thorough whilst being treated in a courteous and professional manner. I felt the I-COG employee went above and beyond my expectations. Even if the claim had been rejected, I would still be singing their praises, such was my positive experience.

Mrs S, Household Claims Customer

”We have to make three claims after our experience in Italy – this the most complicated this one. This has been resolved courteously, with empathy, swiftly and fairly – and resolved the quickest. The industry could learn a lot from you. You have been great – so kind on the phone and so efficient. I can’t rate you highly enough! “

Ms H, Household Claims Customer

“Thank you once again for all your help. I fully respect what you have to do and the process and function you fulfill. I can now see, how from the insurance company’s perspective it needed further investigation, and I’m grateful that you can now see how such an unusual set of circumstances came about. Thanks again!”

Mr D, Travel Claims Customer

“I wanted to write in and thank you for the empathic way your personnel treated me under the circumstances. Although my claim was declined I was still treated with dignity, which doesn’t happen much these days. So thank you…..”

Mrs J, Travel Claim Customer

“As CPW are committed to providing positive customer experiences as well as detecting contentious claims, we previously weren’t 100% reassured that the methods we used met our vision and ,ethics. We then met with I-COG and have to say that our eyes in the world on conversation management have been very much been opened. A total pleasure to work with, they really have made a positive impact within our teams. By also designing a bespoke ‘train the trainer course’ which is superb, they have provided us with the internal sustainability to use more improved screening methods and customer engagement techniques that already have proved fruitful. We would have no hesitation in recommending I-COG and look forward to working with them again.”
