by Seo Pyxle on July 6, 2015

Pyxle recently developed a highly intuitive,modern and responsive website including customer-friendly features for Union Assurance General Limited (UAG), the recently segregated arm of Union Assurance (www.uageneral.com).

Highlighting their new business model, the new website is UAG’s ongoing endeavour to simplify insurance information and portray its own product portfolio.

The new website reflects a clean design with a user-friendly layout and easy navigation structure, making it effortless for policyholders to gain easy access to information about its products and services. The main feature of the entire platform that makes this possible is an interactive ‘virtual house’ that acts as a creative guide; by means of a few clicks depending on what what a user is searching for, captivating imagery and dynamic captions reveal relevant information about UAG’s products and services, taking each user by the hand to thereby determine what exactly is most appropriate for him/her.

“We understand the importance of serving our customers’ insurance needs when it matters most,” said Clement Fernandopulle, General Manager IT at UAG. “Our new site is designed to be our customers’ first stop for insurance; information, solutions and insight. Its expanded focus allows us to offer best-in-class online support to meet our customers’ needs.”

The solution is a fully-fledged mobile enabled website with multi-lingual features, a clear categorization of products under UA General i.e. Motor, Home, Travel, Marine, etc. In addition, an interactive ‘Need based’ feature was incorporated to facilitate users to find their ‘Best Fit’ insurance package by directly addressing their unique needs.

The website also offers customers detailed product information online and at their fingertips without having to visit a branch. A novel feature is the ‘Call Back’ concierge service, allowing customers to request an insurance agent contact them for further inquiries.

“Our goal was to provide a valuable resource in one location to help consumers make informed insurance decisions. Pyxle has developed our newly branded website enabling us to keep our existing customer base aware of company news and new developments whilst helping attract new clients.”

The new website not only provides comprehensive product information, but it also offers online users the ability to manage their accounts, check claim status, obtain policy information, and download claim forms with ease. More importantly, the website aims to educate and provide relevant information about supplemental insurance products while giving customers a positive online experience.

“The new design strongly portrays the UAG brand, while enabling the organization to better serve today’s consumer and position itself well for ongoing shifts in consumer technology adoption. By coupling a multi-device presence we are not only delivering an ideal customer experience, but offering a truly integrated presence that will deliver results.” said Oshada Senanayake, Director of Operations at Pyxle.

Will the Mobile Friendly algorithm be more powerful than Panda and Penguin??

by Seo Pyxle on March 20, 2015

Google-Algorithm

 

The impact of the updated Mobile Friendly algorithm will have more impact than Panda and Penguin, as it will affect nearly 40% of the sites.

Zineb Ait Bahajji, one of the team members Webmaster Trends, said during the SMX Munich the next Google algorithm on the Mobile Friendly will have more ‘impact than updates to Google Panda and Google Penguin and he further mentioned that the update would impact nearly 40% of the sites and queries which represents just half of the websites that are referenced on Google. The Mobile Friendly update will be launched on 21 April, Google announced that everyone should be prepared, as this will mess up a lot of sites in the rankings.

From the first announcement, Google announced the importance of the impact on this update. However, one must weigh the impact by saying that only cover the mobile version of Google search, but all sites are affected in one way or another.

The update Panda concerned only 12% of the sites, but it creates a tidal wave that swept away many sites. The Penguin update has affected 4% of queries and yet, many sites have fallen in the rankings.

This update will be launched simultaneously in all countries. The goal is obviously to Google to improve the relevance of its smartphone and tablet search engine by providing users with fully compatible websites with their terminals.

If you want to make sure that your page meets the mobile-friendly criteria according to Google:

Be Prepared, prevention is better than cure….
