  • Optimising the database has made the service uncompromisingly fast
  • The inclusion of digital signatures adds much needed features for users, not found in competing products
  • Encoded audio allows the app to quickly access extensive records with ease
  • The microservice architecture ensures the service can be easily expanded and improved going forward

    Business Need

    This particular app was built by the CEO himself and, due to his technical background, he knew moving to the Cloud was a must for expanding the project and keeping it competitive.

    He had already experimented with a Cloud platform that wasn’t to his needs, but the versatility and variety of AWS convinced him to migrate over. Doing so also opened up new features and the possibility to continue expanding the product to meet the growing needs of insurance agents.
