Harmony, exclusive insurance partner of Phone House
In 2021, a successful pilot was run at a small number of stores. As a result of the success of the pilot, it was decided at the end of 2021 to roll out the insurance proposition to all of the 82 Phone House stores. This was the reason for partner support of Phone House and the commercial team of Harmony to raise their glasses together to a fruitful partnership.
Ronald van Weelde, CEO of Harmony: “We are proud to be the exclusive insurance partner of Phone House. The cooperation is very pleasant. We both put the customer first and want to make life as easy as possible for the Phone House entrepreneur. Our partnership has resulted in a great new insurance proposition called Phone House Zeker. Together we have the ambition to further expand this proposition.
The goal is to provide excellent service to Phone House customers in the event of damage or theft. After the damage is reported, the customer can usually go to the local Phone House store. In addition, we offer the Phone House entrepreneur excellent guidance from a regional Sales Coach who helps to sell Phone House Certainly in the right way.”
Jean-Paul Verhaaren, Statutory Director of Phone House: “Connecting your name to a supplier is not something you do lightly. Listening to our customers helped us to make the choice for a new insurance partner. Our customers can’t do without their smartphones, and we can’t do without a good insurance partner. As the best telecom retailer, we went looking for the best partner. One that thinks with us, is progressive and innovative. We found all this in Harmony. We are very happy that Harmony made it possible to connect our name to their insurance product.
Our dream is to connect all Dutch people with the right products and services. Harmony helps us every day one step closer to making our dream come true.”
