Allianz is the leading insurance company in Germany with more than 20 million customers, 30,000 employees and 8,600 local agents.
The Test and Integration Center is the only accredited software and accessibility testing centre for the Internet industry in Germany. Allianz chose TIC over the competing bids because of the quality of its testing processes and testing reports and the fact that it offers the best price/performance ratio.
The extensive series of tests were carried out during two weeks with different members of the user group concerned – blind, partially sighted, manually disabled and deaf people. The tests were based on the German Barrier-free Information Technology Ordinance (BITV 2.0) and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0). The problems encountered were then documented in detail, analysed, categorised and evaluated.
Each problem was also assessed individually, together with code-based suggestions for improvement.
Nathan Weber, Project Manager Meine Allianz at Allianz Deutschland AG, on the results of the test report: "My organisation was amazed by the scope and presentation of the test report, and particularly the advice provided. Much appreciated!"
