We launched a new, innovative website with lots of best-in-class, industry leading resources that make understanding the value of insurance easy for everyone!

They say that great things come to those who wait, and that has definitely proven to be true with our website redesign project. We had a vision of building an innovative site – one that would serve as the foundation of our social media efforts – with best-in-class, industry leading resources that make understanding the value of insurance easy for everyone. We took the time to get it right and we think we knocked it out of the ballpark. But what really matters is what you think (and we can’t wait to get your feedback).

First, a little story about what we learned

Rewriting and redesigning a website from the ground up is a lot of work! But the end result was well worth the effort of our entire team because we now have a site that delivers a great user experience for our clients and prospects. We hope you agree, and would love to hear your thoughts on the overall site and the features mentioned below.

Some of our goals

A few of our goals with the new website were to make it more organized, easier to navigate for all users, easier for us to manage/update, and cooler looking than most insurance sites out there. Most of all, we wanted to help our clients get to know us better and we wanted to offer tools to make doing business with us easier.

A few very cool features

3. Intuitive Forms

From requesting a quote, to submitting a claim request, and everything in between – we’ve got you covered.

Our intuitive forms will walk you through every action and a member of our friendly team will reach out to you to confirm and take care of your request.Arbor at the forefront of technology 3

4. Interactive Coverage Scenes

Have you ever wondered about all of the risk factors your business, your family or your unique collection can potentially be exposed to, but the thought of reading a wordy article or even listening to a long-winded explanation simply makes you cringe? We solved that problem! Here’s a peek at one of the “scenes” available on our website to help you learn about insurance in a fun, visual way.

5. Multilingual Translation

At Arbor, we’re committed to promoting a culture of diversity and inclusion. We consider ourselves advocates for all consumers, through our ongoing efforts to partner with insurance companies that can provide more flexible coverage options. But we don’t want to stop there. We want our website to be inclusive as well which is why we offer a multilingual translation of our website through Google Translate.
