Sky Insurance (SISGL)
Click the image for a live site link

Sky Insurance has for the past two decades specialised in providing short-term insurance solutions for the commercial sector of the market. In 2005, they found that their existing Website designers had limited experience in the latest technology available which impacted on delivery times. Their remit was to find a Company who could listen to their requirements, provide expert knowledge together with a named project manager. By working closely with the Client and meeting their expectations, Sure Communication (sur.co.uk) Ltd were given two further projects to develop. More recently, they have re-designed the main website for the group bringing into play the latest technology available.

www.insuredaily.co.uk

With the increasing number of Insurers refusing to provide temporary insurance cover to the general public, insuredaily.co.uk was launched in 2006 to give back the freedom of choice, with the added bonus of being able to purchase insurance cover on-line and more importantly provide an “out-of-hours” service.

Features

  • 24hr quick-quote facility for vehicle groups 1 – 20
  • Postcode look-up facility
  • Streamlined proposal form for data capture
  • integrated electronic card payment facility
  • Insurance documents printable at point of sale.
  • Site generated e-receipts

The site has full on-line back-office administration by UIG management and key staff offering:

  • Database Administration
  • Site survey results
  • Management information MI reports
  • Site Monitoring reports including Web Trends

These are only a sample of the features built into the system.

Barrie Simpson (Special Schemes Underwriting Manager) wrote:
“I discovered Sure Communication by using a search engine for CMS. Having contacted them, a meeting was arranged within a week and a brief was submitted to us for consideration a couple of days later. I was extremely impressed with Sure’s professionalism and their approach to what was for us our first Website for the retail market.

Within 12 weeks, we had a fully functional Website. The team at SurCo are friendly, fast, efficient and responsive to our needs. Sure Communication has worked closely with us to get the specifications and application architectures exactly right for our requirements and our entry into the retail e-commerce presence on the Web. They are one of the few firms I have found over the years that will advise you whether a concept is possible before wasting time and money to discover afterwards that the concept will just not work.

Since our original database was built, we have expanded its content quite considerably with extensive MI requirements. The ability to be able to edit text, make quick changes to the page layouts to meet an ever challenging market–place is paramount by our business needs; and I am pleased to say that Sure Communication have a package that does just that 24/’7.”

We are a high traffic site and wanted to add to the Morgan experience of being in touch with the factory and Morgan world. The speed and ease that we can now post news & pictures is a positive pleasure to use, and what Sure have done is to integrate the behind the scenes areas of the site into our other systems and what a difference it has made to our business." - Matthew Parkin

Richard Plowman (LOFA Secretary) had the following to say:

"LOFA, the Leisure and Outdoor Furniture Association, already had a good site from Sure Communication but we both felt that it could be substantially improved. Indeed web sites that don't develop will probably die in the long run. What really worked well was the close working relationship between LOFA and Sure Communication so the site could be tailor made to meet our needs. The innovation in the new site is outstanding but to the users, it is more informative and even simpler to use. All Members can now see who visit their web site and can update it themselves. We now have a true portal site for garden furniture and barbecues."

Testimonial

Surco built, designed and host our attractive new site, resulting in easy access to features and information for visitors and tools for simple content building and editing by the site administrator. This is particularly important as any successful sports club website needs constant updating with results, news and articles to keep it interesting and to encourage repeat visits.

Our site went live in August 2008 fulfilling all our requirements. The resulting traffic has increased substantially when compared with our previous website and has attracted praise from other clubs.
