On Tuesday, 27 February 2024, the nominees will present their project in a 5-minute pitch on stage or via livestream. The pitches can be made in German or English. The audience then votes live and the result of this live vote is added to the points awarded by the jury in advance. The highest total number of points results in the 2024 winners. 

The projects

The subject of the application must be a project or a measure and not a product or software.  The project could for example be an internal project as well as one that sustainably improves the customer interface. 

Projects can be entered for the following focal topics: 

  • Innovation focus Employees: Realisation of an exception personnel development concept or the successful implementation of New Work concepts  
  • Innovation focus Organization: Comprehensive restructuring measures or a successful change management process  
  • Innovation focus Customer: Innovative customer service campaign or measures to increase quality, accessibility and customer satisfaction 
  • Innovation focus Digitalization: A project for digital transformation  
  • Innovation focus AI: The successful introduction or further development of an AI solution. 

Seven jurors will then declare the nominees from all project entries across two application rounds.  

The applicants

The EUROCC is awarded to innovative customer service and sales managers for a successful project that improves customer dialogue. The project can only be entered by the person responsible in the company in which the project was implemented or carried out. This means that a project partner or solution provider themselves can unfortunately not enter the project, but only the company where the project was realized or the solution implemented. 

The award is aimed at companies that operate their own internal call center as well as at outsourcing partners. However, companies that implement customer service and sales themselves without a classic call center are also eligible to enter the EUROCC. 

Each applicant may submit only one project to apply for the award.
