The PZU Group’s strategic planning is predicated on four fundamental principles: stability, honesty, innovativeness and responsibility. These are the values that form the basis for the functioning of best practices in the PZU Group (including the principles of sustainable development implemented in business processes in a broad sense) and the Group’s business strategy.
On 9 January 2018 the PZU Management Board and Supervisory Board adopted the strategy update up to 2020. The PZU Group’s new operating model departs from the classical model of cultivating client relations based on sales and after-sales service in the direction of having frequent and high quality client interactions during every stage of life anywhere PZU can lend a helping hand. Building relations and partnerships in this line of thinking has been defined as delivering products and services well-matched to clients at the appropriate time and place so as to ensure at the same time that the product’s attributes (including its price) are aligned to client needs.
This strategy has specified how various areas within the PZU Group will be integrated to focus on clients in a way that will maximize client convenience and satisfaction. Special emphasis will be placed on analyzing the information the PZU Group has to grasp and use it better.
In order to create the appropriate business environment to attain these targets, client interactions were redefined from scratch. This entailed an alteration to the philosophy of how the overall Group operates. For this purpose, the various business units were placed in a single integrated system dedicated to full dimensional client service at every stage of development. Client interactions were realigned to long-term partnership based on trust and understanding where a major value driver is the quality of the solutions dedicated to clients.
The strength of the #nowePZU strategy lies in technological support spanning the field of innovation and encompassing nearly all the Group’s operating areas. Multi-dimensional data analysis will make it possible to gain a better grasp of client needs, offer more efficient client service and provide for easier contacts with a greater amount of partnership. The means to execute these initiatives will involve the usage of tools based on artificial intelligence, Big Data and mobile solutions.
