Berlin/Munich, 29 May 2019 – Scout24, a leading operator of digital marketplaces with a focus on real estate and automobiles in Germany and other selected European countries, has received an award for the service quality of its online marketplaces. The German Institute for Service Quality and the TV station n-tv awarded the prize to ImmobilienScout24 and AutoScout24 for the second time in a row.
Dr. Thomas Schroeter, Chief Product Officer at Scout24, comments on the award in the categories "Used car portals, car workshop portals and real estate portals" as follows: "We are very pleased that we have been honoured for the second time in a row for the high service quality of our digital marketplaces. With ImmobilienScout24 and AutoScout24, we have been supporting our users for more than 20 years in making their best decisions about cars and real estate. Consumers are particularly uncertain about their homes and their own vehicles. That is why we have made it our task to make these markets more digital and transparent. We provide our users with the information they need to make the right decisions confidently and well-informed. In addition to the desired car or property, this now also includes the brokerage of financing, insurance or relocation services."
The award "Germany's Best Online Portals" was awarded for the third time by n-tv and the German Institute for Service Quality. It is based on an extensive survey of German consumers. Around 33,000 customer opinions were obtained by market researchers as part of a representative online survey in the first quarter of 2019. The survey focused on more than 570 providers from 45 different categories. Within the scope of the study, the online portals were evaluated in terms of offer and performance, customer service as well as their Internet presence. In addition, consumers indicated whether they would recommend the online portals to others.
We are creating a networked system for housing and mobility with our leading digital marketplaces: ImmobilienScout24 in Germany and Austria and AutoScout24 in Europe. More than 1,500 employees make it possible for our users to quickly and easily find their new home or car. Scout24 Consumer Services also offers additional customized support by brokering, for example, relocation, construction, and car financing services. Scout24 AG is a listed stock corporation and is traded on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (ISIN: DE000A12DM80 / DE000A2TSEV4, ticker: G24 / G24Z).
