CoverageNinja is a web based portal providing retail insurance agents access to the international insurance marketplace bypassing the typical network of local and international agents usually required to access their products.

The Challenge

Discover IT were commissioned to develop an extranet website for Transportation Resources. The extranet is used for issuing insurance policies for the Transportation industry in the USA and Canada.

The site will enable logged in users to obtain quotes and issue insurance policies with deferred authority, for the following products:

  • Motor Truck Cargo
  • Auto Physical Damage (Fire Theft Collision)
  • General Liability
  • Combined
Documents issue will be handled directly online.

The Key Project Features

CoverageNinja administrators are able to perform the following actions through the website:

  • New Business Quotes
  • Change Premium amount
  • Policy Issuance
  • Policy Document Generation
  • Cancelation of policies
  • Add Endorsements mid-term
  • Make other policy detail corrects (but not resulting in premium changes)
  • Approve retail agent quotes
  • Administer retail agent users

Retail Agents are able to do the following:

  • Login
  • Enter New Business details
  • Submit Quotes to CoverageNinja for approval

Particular attention was paid to the user interface design to ensure a smooth and efficient journey. For example, the forms have validation to enforce data entry of required fields. Calendar controls will be used for date input.

Based on the rating information provided, the premium amount will be automatically calculated by the system (along with state taxes and fees). CoverageNinja staff have the ability to override the premium amount.

It will be possible for endorsements to be added to policies mid-term. This will result in new documentation being generated. Therefore versioning of the policy details will be necessary, to retrieve information on what endorsements were applicable to a policy at a particular point in time.

The Results

The site went live in October 2014, with the combined product added in January 2015.
