Savvy Insurance

by Veronica 17/08/2020


Savvy, tenant screening app was motivated to test the willingness of their Applicants to also obtain Renters Insurance. Renters’ insurance, often called tenants’ insurance, is an insurance policy that provides liability insurance and the tenant’s personal property is covered against named perils such as fire, theft, and vandalism.

To keep a low budget and at the same time create a full-fledged product, we used SURE API. This allowed us to handle the entire policy purchase cycle without direct contact with various suppliers.


We developed a separate web application to quote/bind renters insurance policies via the SureApp API. Moreover, we integrated newly created product with the Savvy App (tenants’ screening app) via a single HTTPS request so that Applicants can utilize the data/information they entered in Savvy to pre-fill Renters insurance application parameters and therefore save time.

Bearing in mind the matters related to UX, we implemented the ability to save the form as a draft, and complete it when visiting again. The UI is based on the original Savvy guildeline, but in a slightly renewed version.

The app use Stripe Javascript libraries for the payment process. App was deployed on Google Cloud Platform, and data is saved to PostgreSQL database
