Insurance Jack

Quoting app that allows drivers to quickly compare insurance rates

Overview

Insurance Jack is a web app that allows users to instantly compare car insurance rates from a number of different carriers. The site's marketing pages are created via traditional server side rendering, while the rate finding tool uses a JavaScript based single-page-app (SPA) architecture. This allows the user to interact with their data in realtime, without the need for page refreshes.

The SPA consumes data from an internal API. Insurance rates are fetched and customer leads are captured via third-party APIs.
