EFG Awards


 

Join an Award-Winning Team

EFG has received 47 national awards, setting the standard of excellence in the industry.

Since 1977, EFG Companies has advanced the bar in providing superior client service with the belief that quality service leads to quality growth. Each year, EFG’s leadership team tackles a simple question – “Why EFG?” And, after pondering the question from the perspective of EFG’s clients, the team challenges itself with, “How does EFG lead the industry?”

The answer lies in EFG’s ongoing achievements.

Net Promoter Score

Net Promoter Score®

 
In EFG’s most recent bi-annual Client Satisfaction Study fielded by national research firm Troubadour Research and Consulting, 99 percent of EFG’s dealer clients stated they would highly recommend EFG, resulting in a Net Promoter Score higher than Nordstrom, Ritz Carlton, and Amazon.

Certified by the Association of Finance and Insurance Professionals

 
With certification from the Association of Finance and Insurance Professionals (AFIP), EFG Companies provides compliance services our clients rely on, like AFIP-certification training and one-on-one compliance coaching. Since 1989, AFIP has served as a non-aligned sanctioning body for in-store sales and financial services personnel and select lender and aftermarket vendor personnel in the United States.

Certified by the National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence

 
EFG is certified every year with the Blue Seal of Excellence by the National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). Why? It exemplifies our commitment to customer excellence while also enhancing our ability to negotiate quality vehicle repairs on behalf of our contract holders. ASE exists to protect the automotive service consumer, shop owner, and automotive technician.

Privacy

 EFG took the proactive step to achieve the Service Organization Control 2 (SOC 2) Certification under the Statement of Standards for Attestation Engagements 18 (SSAE 18) guidelines from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). This is the most widely-recognized standard providing a method for reporting information about the design and operation of internal systems and controls relating to privacy and security regulations.

Security

 Companies achieving certification by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) as PCI Data Security Standard compliant (PCI DSS) deliver a higher standard of security for personal confidential information and compliance with federal, state, and local regulatory requirements. With the sheer amount of confidential consumer information collected in the retail automotive, home warranty and lending industries, data security is mission critical to successfully conducting business, and we aggressively pursue heightened controls and protocols each year.
