A new site launch for Touchstone Underwriting

A new site for Touchstone Underwriting

It is always good to announce a new site launch, yet we are often too busy to tap out a few words to acknowledge the hard work the dpc team put into launching a new site or store. This month we have launched a number of new sites, but one really deserves a mention as the team managed to get it live in six weeks.

A humungous effort from everyone saw the new Touchstone Underwriting site  go through IA, design, development, content population, QAT, UAT and then launch in what has to be a record time. Especially as there were hundreds of policy documents that had to be not only transferred from the old site and system to the new one, but redirects set up and tested for each and every document.

The client was a dream to work with (thank you Priya for all your hard work) and the end result is a fabulous new site, stunning design, and happy agency and client.

A testament to our systems and processes.

The site was built on WordPress, check out the new site here:
