The problem we had to solve was how to integrate auto quoting with policy purchase into a single, cohesive experience. The solution was found through a complete understanding of business requirements for quoting, mapping the customer journey, and wire framing.
No Bait & Switch
When Stillwater Insurance expanded their product line directly to consumers, a key objective was to enable quick quoting for home, auto, and BOP (business) insurance products while not sacrificing accuracy and clarity.
Hassle Free Payment Options
With all consumer insurance products, there are different payment options to bind the policy. Affordances were made to allow the user to select different payment plans and easily discern costs associated with each plan.
Don’t Force Commitment
Create an complete quoting and purchasing path for the consumer. Enable the user to save the quote and come back later and start back where they left off.
