THE CONTEXT

Market’s needs & expectations

Toll payments are as necessary as time-consuming. To respect current legislation and avoid financial penalties, drivers must track the validity data of several tolls (including the RCA insurance) and pay on time for the policy renewal. In the absence of an application within reach, the drivers had to go to the insurance companies or brokers whenever the policy expired.

Online Portal

Online Portal allows the customers to find the best insurance for their cars, searching in all the major insurance companies from Romania.

The website compares the quotes from various insurance companies in real-time and allows them to order and pay online for any RCA product they want.

The website interrogates the insurance databases consuming web services, aggregates and filters the results.

We have done a lot of speed optimization so the portal can handle high traffic and a large number of simultaneous users/requests.

The admin panel is as complex as intuitive and includes several modules:

  • User management;
  • Order management;
  • Content Management;
  • Sales Reports;
  • Email marketing.
