Founded in 2003, Freedom Health Insurance is an award-winning family-run private medical insurance (PMI) provider based in Poole, United Kingdom. The organization wanted a more customer-centric website that would actively drive enquiries and online sales. Its successful transformation had an immediate impact on the business.

New website reflecting the customer-centric approach  

Freedom Health Insurance offers flexible private personal, family, and business insurance products at competitive premiums to people living in the UK and overseas and provides a personalized and compassionate service. Priding itself on its company values of being caring, professional, honest, and ambitious, this business holds its own in a market dominated by major players.

During the website update project, a key emphasis was placed on optimizing the user journey and on guiding potential and existing customers to their specific content of interest, as well as helping them achieve their objectives via interactive online quotation tools in a self-service environment.

The new site needed to become the go-to place for insurance brokers, providing them with a highly secure dedicated portal with custom online quotation tools that support them in their selling process.  

Challenges

The needs of Freedom Health Insurance were many and multifaceted:  

  • A more customer-centric website with streamlined user journeys
  • The ability to personalize content to enhance the user experience
  • Self-service areas with online user quote generation tool
  • Sales support for brokers, including broker portal with custom quotation tool
  • The ability to capture behavior and data for tracking and targeting  


Solution

The i3 Digital team was in charge of all UX design, prototyping, and web development, and selected Kentico (with ERP & CRM integration) as their digital experience platform of choice. Their vast experience with Kentico meant they were able to design and develop a highly bespoke solution that met all of Freedom Health Insurance’s objectives.

Results

The new user-centric website incorporates a high level of complex functionality. The MVC build approach makes it easy to upgrade and update, even making it technologically future proof.

Having been fully optimized for a streamlined user journey, users can now easily navigate the site and get quotes online. The original custom quote tools (for brokers and individuals) have been redesigned and rebuilt to be fully integrated with Kentico’s user account management which leverages an API layer to enable users to log in or register for both the website and quote tool with single sign-on.  

Personal and broker quotes can be displayed, reviewed, and retrieved, meaning users can think about them and complete them at their own pace.

Bounce rate saw an instant 10% improvement (compared to the average from three months before launch) and a 5.4% improvement compared to the same period the previous year. Meanwhile, the 38% increase in the number of Pages/Sessions seen immediately after launch contributed to a 23% increase compared to the same period the previous year.

We needed a digital experience platform that allowed us to integrate the website with internal systems and APIs and could also support an online broker portal.
