As the world becomes increasingly mobile, there is a growing demand for quick and easy access to information. With this in mind, a large US insurer facing difficulty in providing information and distributing sales collateral on new product launches wanted to ensure that the field agents do not miss out on opportunities. NIIT Technologies was entrusted with the task of developing an iPad application that could house the entire product catalog and also work in offline mode to facilitate agents’ on-the-move. With our deep understanding of the insurance industry and vast experience in creating solutions in the app ecosystem, we were able to deliver value—a superior iPad app on-time and within budget.
The second largest publicly held personal lines property and casualty insurer in the US, the client serves more than 16 million households nationwide. The company also has personal lines insurance operations in Canada.
The client wished to expand its mobile offerings and needed the assistance of a solution integrator with iPad application development capabilities. The solution partner was to develop an app that could provide an easy and quick way for field agents to access information based on:
Apart from providing information, the client wanted the app to have the ability to send out PDF documents from agents to prospective customers and view content in offline mode. A superior user experience was imperative to deliver rich information using a clean and intuitive design.
NIIT Technologies was chosen as the solution partner and integrator for the mobile app development based on our capability to deliver digital initiatives and our prior experience in similar engagements for clients worldwide.
As the prime solution integrator, we undertook overall responsibility for the project to ensure smooth delivery. The NIIT Technologies team applied best practices for the development of the iPad app. After ensuring that infrastructure needs were met, we designed the application using the Xcode interface with Objective C for iOS 5.0. After the application was designed, all the sales collaterals and documents were bundled within the application to ensure that the information was available offline to field agents.
Some of the features of the app are:
NIIT Technologies’ dedicated mobility Center of Excellence, dedicated team of insurance business analysts with hands-on experience in market-leading platforms from Duck Creek, and various Life & Annuity platforms and applications, and technical expertise in native mobile responsive web apps, and cross platform mobile app development ensured that the client met their schedule and quality requirements.
