Helping simplify health insurance planning for The Insurance Group

Insurance isn’t always the flashiest of industries, but it represents stability and safety for many businesses and families.

Working with The Insurance Group for many years, we’ve been able to help them hone their message and design, through websites, print materials and even sales presentations.

Based in Columbia, with offices in St. Louis, The Insurance Group focuses on delivering quality insurance products with a personalized, hands-on experience, similar to Hub & Spoke’s customer service promise.

We recently launched a new database-driven insurance calculator tool for the company, giving it a leg up on informing and educating its corporate customers and their employees. The tool, which was custom-built in the Laravel PHP framework, features a Bootstrap-based design and a wealth of options.

From HSAs to medical expenses, the calculator allows TIG’s corporate clients to test different scenarios, seeing how it will potentially impact their healthcare costs and deductibles.

“The web application has been very well received with our client base, and we continue to expand its usage,” said Jason Swindle of The Insurance Group. “This continued partnership has helped us offer new levels of service to our customers online, while using one web agency has made communication and the development process easy as we work to refine our strategy on the web.”

No matter the size or type of project, Hub & Spoke is ready to help you find focus. From custom website design that works on all devices, known as responsive web design, to custom database solutions, we’re here to help. Let’s talk today about how our award-winning team can help you online.

Why WordPress rocks as a content management system

What is a content management system anyway?
