Establishing an inclusive culture of transformation

Industry: Financial Services
Region: International
HQ: The Hague, Netherlands
Company size: 28,318 employees

Assured and seamless migration to time and budget


This is the story of a dynamic and collaborative partnership delivering business transformation with assurance and pace to enhance Aegon’s customers’ experience (CX) while delivering efficiencies and upskilling staff.

The project has seen a number of firsts: Aegon’s CX Academy – unique in the UK, its pioneering CX Lab, powerful automation now embedded into operations, new employee engagement, plus customer satisfaction scores well above market norms.

Atos and Aegon have created a mutual benefit fund to invest in joint development activities, with Atos entrusted with more digital transformation work beyond the original contract – a clear vote of confidence in Atos’ approach.

The challenge


As a leading financial services provider, Aegon needed a proven digital transformational partner to rapidly deliver a seamless and intuitive customer journey whilst optimizing its key background systems. Following a rigorous, competitive supplier selection process, Atos achieved a rapid, seamless migration of Aegon’s operations and IT in order to start delivering continuous service improvements. What makes Atos unique is its joint working approach and thinking ‘beyond the contract’ from day one.
