Helping FWU to Focus on their Core Business: Providing Life Insurance on a Fast and Secure Website

As an important global player, Forward You specialises in international unit-linked life insurance. The key and main channel of successful communication with their customers is their website – but how good is a website without a modern backend?

The technical basis of FWU’s old website did not meet their requirements: it was difficult to  maintain and extend, the use of different technological elements was too complex. The CMS only allowed editing of a few components, releases were manual and complex; there was no automatic deployment pipeline. Meaning: sticking to an outdated system would exceed the cost of a modern system by far.

FWU wanted a CMS that did not require technical help to be managed in multiple countries and languages. It needed to stay flexible so additional services that would be beneficial in the future, such as CRM, Marketing Automation Tools, and Search could be installed later. The system had to provide writers and editors with standard CMS features, making it much easier for the content team to work with.

The client trusted us in handling the Contentful Headless CMS implementation, because we believe in its flexibility, security, and multichannel approach to publish content faster and make it easier for writers and editors.

Together with the client and our partner Contentful, we implemented a Headless CMS that’s new, scalable, and highly flexible to work with. It helped the client to solve their backend problems, while gaining time and money to focus on their core business: providing life insurance on a fast and secure website.
