Talk to us
Our company’s frontend developers specialize in:
A fast-moving, transparent Agile Development team your company can count on.
See actual ROI in weeks, not months.
Senior tech leads direct every project.
You’ll own 100% of your code, and we’ll never hold you hostage.
Not sure which technology is right for your project? You’re in the right place.
We build your application in the frontend technology that meets your exact needs, and will help you modernize and enhance your customer experience so that you can compete with confidence.
This means if your firm already has a frontend development solution in mind, we’ll lean in to support your dev strategy. If you don’t, we’ll help you decide on one.
But before we recommend any technology, we dig into the details of your people, processes, and existing stack.
- Do you have a frontend app development team, and do they already have expertise in a given framework or library?
- Will your current backend and/or full stack developers support the product long term, or will you hire dedicated frontend expertise?
- Are you modernizing existing software, and if so, are you iterating page-by-page or module-by-module?
- Are A and/or AA accessibility standards a prerequisite for definition of done?
- What is your mobile strategy and roadmap? How will your web and mobile applications complement each other?
We then combine the insights we gain from you with our deep knowledge of technology and the latest marketplace trends to approach your frontend development project in a way that best meets your unique needs and goals.
“In our industry, it can be challenging to stand out. When the coverage features and many of the benefits from carrier to carrier are similar, you have to find ways to rise to the top. So how do we make ourselves stand out? Through innovation, through the look of the portals, through the ease of doing business and [members] feeling like we are investing in them and their experience with us.”
Shelly Ursini, VP of Business Development and Marketing, Integris Group

What technology do you have in mind?
When it comes to recommending technology for frontend development services, we don’t recommend our favorites. Instead, we leverage insights from rigorous market research to inform technology recommendations that ensure
Consider React if…
You’re looking to build a high-performing, user-friendly application that will dramatically transform your customer experience, as well as one that is interactive, streamlined, and able to support applications of varying complexity.
You intend to rely on the application for years to come or plan on hiring developers one day to support the application internally. Widespread adoption by developers means more developers working in React, which provides access to a broad talent pool for your company when hiring more frontend development resources down the road.
React is a top frontend app development choice for projects with complicated user journeys or client flows, and excels at powering the data behind them.
Vue is the “new kid on the block.” It’s community sourced and based on model-view-controller architecture. Vue is lightweight and versatile, which makes it a popular choice among financial services firms and frontend development experts alike.
Consider Vue if…
You’re looking for a performance boost or a targeted feature update; if you’re trying to modernize the technology or the user experience of your outdated application; if you want to start small, but still have the capability to go big.
Your developers are full stack as opposed to specialized in backend and/or frontend app development. Because a single full-stack engineer can more easily maintain the frontend as well as the backend, Vue is a remarkably affordable long-term option when compared with React and Angular, which have much steeper learning curves.
Vue is a top choice for modernizing your outdated application or SPA, creating a more interactive experience, or adding new features to enhance an existing application.
Angular is a frontend app development framework that was created by Google. It’s full featured for when you want everything “pre-loaded” and is time tested as the first major Single Page Application to be adopted by the dev community.
Consider Angular if…
You’re a large enterprise looking to build a robust system to support your in-house operations or a forward-facing progressive web application.
You want a fully configured solution so that your developers can focus more on building the application features, and less on building out the application infrastructure. Often used in the enterprise, Angular’s full-featured approach provides tools for dealing with the vast majority of developer use-cases when building modern web applications on the frontend.
Angular is a solid frontend application development choice for supporting large-scale, complex workflows and dynamic applications.
Security is extremely important in our line of work.
We know it is in yours, too.
You’re likely concerned about the idea of giving an outside team access to your backend systems, which contain highly sensitive information such as your business logic, customer data, and intellectual property.
We get it. Your security is very important to us too. So much so that we’ve composed our team and built our processes to work embedded in your process, and that includes any security standards you have in place.
When it comes to development, we can build your entire frontend without ever touching your backend systems. We achieve this by building a “middleware” layer, which is a lightweight interface that takes care of sending only the data we need from your backend to your frontend. So, all of your backend information, data, and IP stay secure.
Additionally, because we don’t have to spend any time learning your business logic, we can stay focused on building out your product roadmap, which means we can deliver much faster while also saving you money.
“I was so impressed with their knowledge. I also think it helps that they had had some experience working with other MPL carriers, so they were familiar with our industry terminology. They knew what we were trying to accomplish, which made it so much easier for me because it’s a daunting process to put all of this together.”
Shelly Ursini, VP of Marketing & Business Development, Integris Group
