Securing Futures

Underwriters spend a lot of time searching for the best quote, user account information. Some find it’s difficult to locate the info they need.

This is a problem because this is time they could be using to generate more leads for customer acquisition which would lead to more revenue for the company.

Research and discovery

Conducting stakeholder and customer interviews allowed us to understand our user's needs. These insights acted as a jumping-off point as we began to brainstorm solutions that would ensure a better experience for our users.


Defining and scoping

Keeping in mind our over-arching objective to make it easier and more efficient to search for and find data, we limited our scope to four main objectives. See examples below

UI Design

Visual Language

With the visual language of the application largely in place, we focused on defining our styles within these constraints. Our goal was to keep components simple, consistent and accessible.

Prototyping and testing

We went through many revisions of the design and at each juncture, we tested the prototype with both stakeholders and customers. Observing their interactions with the prototype and listening to their feedback helped us to spot small errors and to refine both the components and the user flows.

Potential outcomes

While outcomes are yet to be measured, we are predicting a good return on investment from the redesign including an increase in customer retention, new customer acquisition and consequently increased sales and revenue.

What I learned

As I reflected on what had gone well and what hadn’t gone so smoothly during the project, I was reminded of a couple of things.
Seek user feedback
We discussed 4-5 solutions for the table design, each with it’s trade-offs. It was only by getting feedback that we were able to narrow down our choices and land on the final solution.
Be a teacher
Don’t assume clients know how to navigate Figma or can figure it out. Write instructions, label everything and be willing to walk them through it or give them a guided tour.
Embrace the role of expert
When a client hires me they are looking for an expert to take them through the design process. Anticipate next steps and guide them along to keep the process moving.
