Case Study

Client:

Major Insurance Intermediary

Challenge:

A Major Insurance Intermediary reached out to us after several successful projects done in the past. Their acquisitions department kept track of several thousand potential acquisitions from an evolved Excel spreadsheet turned Swiss Army knife.

Spreadsheets are commonly used as a core to some businesses. They quickly outgrew Excel and their spreadsheet developed into an unmanageable state. Spreadsheets were passed around and data was being overwritten which became a significant problem. The field employees were given a subset of records, but this made updating the master spreadsheet painful. Keeping track of due diligence documents related to one record was tedious to view. Security was very weak just a password protected spreadsheet and no one could be held accountable if something went wrong. There was no way of auditing anything.

Solution:

We sat down and discussed what their challenges were and analyzed any other situations that weren't thought of before. We identified the different types of people that would interact with the application and the tasks that they specifically needed to accomplish. Designs were mocked up according to those. One of the concerns of the client was adoption. Even though the acquisitions team had many problems with their current spreadsheet, they were married to Excel. We solved this by creating a hybrid web application which generated excel spreadsheets that would be checked out (downloaded) and checked in (uploaded). Adding new records, assigning them to field employees, assigning statuses, and viewing records in a pleasant way were the focus of the web application. The rest of the individual pieces of data were managed in the spreadsheets. An executive administrator would be responsible to assign records to several field employees. They would check out records assigned to a field employee which would create an Excel sheet on-the-fly and then hand it over to them.

The field employees would update their spreadsheet and then hand it back over to their executive administrator which would check in the spreadsheet into the web application. A record conflict resolution system was created to handle any conflicts in the data and prevent data from being overwritten. For instance, if two people updated the same record and checked in their spreadsheets, one of them would be presented with a new spreadsheet with the problem record so that they could fix it. Underlying technologies used were PHP with the Kohana MVC framework, Javascript/jQuery, and a NoSQL database (CouchDB with Lucene). This application was also integrated into the company's existing intranet.

Benefits:

  • Records now leave an audit trail
  • Data is never lost and in the event that data is lost by user error it can be restored to a previous version
  • Better security and data is limited to what's assigned to each user so they don't have excessive privileges
  • Everyone adopted the new system well thanks to the hybrid approach
  • Important documents and any other file could be easily attached to a specific record. Anyone with the proper rights could view them in one central place.
  • Since a framework was used and proper software engineering practices were applied the application is prepared for any future growth
