J. Manning

A multi-carrier platform to manage insurance enrollment applications.

J. Manning & Associates/LTCI Partners is an independent brokerage firm that specializes in employer-sponsored group long-term care insurance solutions for employee benefits brokers, financial services professionals and employer groups.

JMA/LTCIP focuses on the mid-large market (500 – 50,000+ employees) working with a wide variety of insurance carriers that either offer or do not offer self-service online enrollment for their clients.

Some years ago and in order to bridge the technological gap, JMA/LTCIP built a functional online enrollment portal to unify the carriers’ efforts on attending their clients.

Teravision was selected to correct bugs in the current portal. Once done, the job was to build a multi-carrier/multi-product self-serve online enrollment platform to get the employee from start to finish as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

Technologies used: Angular Js, Ansible, Javascript, Jenkins, MySQL, Nightwatch, Node Js, Ruby on Rails
Engagement Model:

Fixed Scope Project.

The Team:

In phase 1, the team worked in a Kanban format on the Bug corrections phase. In phase 2, our team started to work using Scrum Agile Software Development practices to develop the multi-carrier functionalities.

The team assigned to this project was:

  • Scrum Master
    Scrum Master
    Project Manager.
  • QA
    QA
    QA Tech Lead.
    1 Automated QA Analyst.
  • Development
    Development
    Dev Tech Lead.
    6 Full stack Developers.
    (2 Ruby + 4 Js / MySQL)

The Solution and Challenges.

JMA/LTCIP requested to correct a set of bugs before moving forward with the design of new workflows. Smooth user experience over the same functionalities was the final task of the project.

A challenge came up in the gathering of the user stories: deep business rules and the all-in-one interfaces of the system made it difficult to create a comprehensive information architecture. Assigning an experienced product owner was crucial for the success of the development process.

Scope of user experience workflow solution:

  • Issue of a Policy. The new software product developed converts a cumbersome monolithic quote-to-order master form into a well structured 7-step process for the issuance of a policy.
  • Insurance Product’s definition. All the actuary rules were integrated with pricing and separated into a well-structured workflow.
  • The solution was integrated with Docusign API.

QA Automation:

  • Our team deployed Automated QA for the project with the use of Nightwatch as the preferred tool.
  • We went further and implemented the Page-Object-Model in Nightwatch. This means we simplified the out-of-box functionalities presenting them as an API, making the code reusable among interfaces and improving code legibility by grouping functions in libraries.
  • Shared GIT repository with development. This avoided the need to rework integrations and DevOps for deployments, giving more time for testing and opening the way to continuous integration using Jenkins.
