Tata AIG General Insurance Company Limited has revamped its online platform, tataaig.com. The new refreshed online platform offers an upgrade on all fronts, including design, software, navigation and user journey to customize and improve the online experience for customers at every touchpoint.
The interface is built using Neumorphism, a relatively new trend in User Interface (UI) design. The Neumorphism aesthetic mimics minimalism and real-looking objects, delivering a unique experience for the user. The interface is clean, fresh and minimalistic that makes it simple for new and returning customers to access what they are looking. The white background with hues of blue has been particularly chosen to reflect the ethos of the brand – simplified, open and transparent, and quick.
Faster & smoother buyer journey
The intuitive click and select schematics make insurance buying a breeze on the new platform. Data integration allows returning customers to transact even quicker by pre-populating fields, so that one can get a quote in just two clicks now. Consumers now also have a wider array of payment options to choose from.
Built for mobile
An increasingly large number of people are using mobile phones to navigate the web. Of India’s 560 million internet users, about 29% are online on mobile devices (as of 2019). This number is expected to grow to 35% by 2023 (Source – Digital India, Mckinsey). In anticipation of this, the new Tata AIG online platform has been built with a mobile-first approach, making it compatible across browsers, operating systems and form factors.
The website has a responsive design architecture that translates to a seamless experience across all screen sizes – mobile or tablet. Particular attention has been paid to minimising page size and optimisations for page rendering, keeping in mind the difference in the quality of internet across the country.
Built for scale
The new TATA AIG platform is a cloud-native application built using server-less components. In combination with micro services, it ensures functionality scales up based on the usage. The new platform is build to handle queries in peak traffic easily, a function extremely crucial for an insurance service provider since responsiveness is a crucial factor. Response times have will be improved by ~35%.
