It's official! DirectAsia.com is one of THE best car insurers in Singapore!
We beat off stiff competition from the likes of Axa and Aviva when the people of Singapore voted for their favourite insurer.
As a new kid on the block we're delighted with the win, which saw us coming in a close second to the well-established NTUC.
The prestigious annual competition entitled The People's Choice Award 2012 is run by AsiaOne, the news and lifestyle portal from Singapore Press Holdings.
The People's Choice Award is among the most coveted by local businesses as it reflects what the buying public considers worthy.
CEO of DirectAsia.com, Simon Birch, said:
"We are very excited about this win. There were 10 entrants in this category and most were big, international insurance companies. We are a new Asian insurer and we're already making waves because we are so focused on the customer and making insurance easier and cheaper for everyone. It means a great deal to us that the people of Singapore are happy with the service they receive from DirectAsia.com."
The accolade comes hot on the heels of two other major award wins.
The international Celent Award was presented to DirectAsia.com for its innovative use of technology enabling customers to buy insurance online quickly, easily and cheaply. Meanwhile, in another competition organized by the Call Centre Association of Singapore, DirectAsia.com's very own call centre champions were awarded for their excellent customer service standards.
Once again DirectAsia.com is leaving the competition standing!
