The eg operational excellence® awards 2014

The 12th annual eg operational excellence awards celebrates clients’ achievements in back office improvements through the use of the eg operational intelligence software suite, took place on Friday 14th November 2014 at the Lowry Hotel in Manchester, UK.

An international benchmark of excellence

As well as acknowledging a host of finalists and winners across Individual, Company and Team Awards, the awards also offer an international benchmark of excellence within the industry.

With another outstanding year of high calibre entries, winners on the evening included Capita Life & Pensions, Wesleyan Assurance Society and DNB Bank. Entries were judged on how they applied the eg principles of operational management training and the eg operational intelligence software suite to improve back office workforce optimisation, strategic forecasting & planning, real-time work management and reporting and analytics.

The realisation of measurable financial savings, cross functional capacity planning, blending work across the front and back offices, innovative intra-day and real-time reporting, compliance and significantly improved customer experience for end customers were among the key themes when selecting the overall winners.

“Now in its 12th year, these awards recognise our user community and acknowledge their contribution to delivering tangible financial and business benefits. We should praise the efforts of all of our finalists for the hard work they have put in over the last 12 months to optimise their back office operations. The standard of entries this year for nominations was truly exceptional and judging was very close indeed. Our winners clearly demonstrated what can be achieved by maximising their use of eg’s tried, tested and proven technology”
