London (PRWEB UK) 4 December 2012
The Collinson Group is pleased to announce that it has acquired CCS.
CCS was established in 1998, and offers the market a leading card protection product as well as having a range of other protection items in its portfolio.
Colin Evans, Chairman of The Collinson Group said: “This acquisition is of strategic importance to the Group, as it perfectly complements our existing product range, based around travel services and card loyalty programmes. We already offer Priority Pass, the world’s largest independent airport VIP lounge access programme, a range of travel and other insurance products through Collinson Insurance Group and technology-driven membership platforms through Collinson Latitude.”
“The addition of card protection through CCS allows us to extend our travel protection and serviced assistance offering to enhance the full ‘travel journey’, and is in line with our strategy as a group to invest in business areas that deliver a superior customer experience for the traveller. In addition to its core products, CCS’s document storage product further enhances our ability to deliver mobile content to our clients on the move.
“In the future this acquisition means that our portfolio of protection products and concierge services will further provide the traveller with peace of mind before they depart and mobile services when on the move, ensuring content is provided direct to them when they most need it.”
Colin continued, “The acquisition of CCS is a perfect fit for The Collinson Group, extending an existing blue-chip client base and our multi-lingual capabilities for the support of protection products across the UK, mainland Europe and Asia Pacific. “We will continue to invest in CCS’s products which we will be able to integrate closely with our own capabilities. We believe the inclusion of the CCS product portfolio with our existing products, technology and delivery capability establishes The Collinson Group as an unrivalled global provider of integrated protection and lifestyle benefits.”
