The Client

Generali Česká pojišťovna is part of the Generali Group, a global leader in insurance and asset management. Founded in 1831, Generali operates in over 50 countries with 72,000 employees serving 67 million customers.

In the Czech Republic, Generali Česká pojišťovna serves millions of clients through approximately 500 branches, offering a wide range of life and non-life insurance products. The merger of Generali and Česká pojišťovna has solidified its market-leading position, focusing on exceptional customer service and innovative solutions.


The Challenge

Optimizing Branch Locations and Efficiency After Merger

Following the merger, Generali Česká pojišťovna faced the challenge of managing a network of around 800 branches, resulting in many duplicate locations. They needed a sophisticated approach to evaluate and optimize these branch locations effectively, ensuring that branches were within acceptable distances to clients and situated in lucrative urban areas. The company had relied on subjective assessments and local knowledge, which lacked measurable data and led to inefficiencies. They required a data-driven solution to ensure branches were strategically placed to serve clients efficiently.


The Solution

Data-Driven Branch Network Optimization

Generali Česká pojišťovna turned to CleverMaps for a sophisticated, unbiased view of their branch network. Implementing CleverMaps involved:


  • Data Collection and Standardization: Gathering and standardizing data from ten different departments, ensuring all data had common indicators.
     

  • Data Security and Accuracy: Handling a large amount of internal data with maximum caution and adhering to all security measures.
     

  • New Data Tracking: Introducing new tracking and evaluation processes for previously unavailable data, as recommended by CleverMaps.
     

After gathering all necessary internal data and enriching it with spatial data from CleverMaps Data Marketplace, such as population, Exposure Index, Points of Interest, and competitor locations, Generali Česká pojišťovna added KPIs and visualized this data in CleverMaps Studio to determine which branches were efficient to keep.

"CleverMaps is a highly sophisticated toolkit that meets our requirements and provides access to a wealth of data we wouldn't have otherwise. The excellent collaboration with the CleverMaps team has allowed us to optimize our branch network without affecting client satisfaction."
- Jan Sevc, Head of Regional Representatives at Generali Česká pojišťovna
