Rebuilding a popular insurance product using modern technologies
The largest residential property MGU in the US faced a serious challenge when they realized one of their mission critical products was relying on technology that is being rapidly phased out across the web. The Insight team looked to Postlight to both solve their specific longevity problem and to improve their broader product offerings in a meaningful way.

It’s not often that you’re asked to completely reengineer a product from the ground up when it is already successful, dependable, and high-performing. With older technologies falling out of favor, we were tasked with finding a solution that minimized disruption to integrations with other key partners, while still quickly updating the product for the modern web era. We strove to ensure a smooth transition for thousands of daily end users, providing an upgraded user experience and enhanced features.
Collaborating with the team at Insight gave us the access and flexibility to efficiently deliver the necessary improvements. We worked together to triage the most important changes, and built a new comprehensive style guide to ensure that the product would feel consistent going forward, even as it went through a variety of technical changes. As an embedded part of the Insight team, we were able to consistently deliver high quality front-end code in conjunction with the back-end and API changes that were required to update the product, even while those back-end and API updates were in flux during the transition period.
