Genworth Mortgage Insurance’s New Website Wins Tech 100 Award

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 1, 2018

Tavant, a leading digital products and solutions company for the consumer lending industry, today announced that the new Genworth Mortgage Insurance website, jointly developed by Genworth and Tavant, received the prestigious HousingWire Tech 100 award.

The initiative accelerates Genworth’s digital transformation journey, leveraging technology to enhance its strong  customer service offerings and experiences. The new website, launched in the fall of 2017, seamlessly combines advanced cloud-based capabilities and deep insights from the company’s customers to maximize usability and user experience. Some key features include a visual pipeline tracking system, reduced data entry for quick and   easy submissions of mortgage insurance (MI) applications, and online MI activation.

Adopting a design-centric approach to achieve business agility, the new design delivers elegant user interfaces and seamless, device-agnostic experiences with enhanced site search capabilities.

“Our focus has been on building a digital experience that addresses the needs of our customers. We measured customer satisfaction with the new site, earning 4.7/5 on ease of use and 4.8/5 on performance, speed and efficiency,” stated Erika Martin, Genworth USMI’s Director of Customer Experience. “Our partnership with Tavant allowed an on-time and quality launch of the website. Their UX research and design expertise combined with deep mortgage technology experience enabled us to provide an exceptional customer experience resulting in high customer satisfaction scores,” she added.

“We designed the entire system from the ground up to ensure that as the needs of Genworth’s users continue to change, their system can easily scale to meet those needs,” said Vibhor Mishra, Head of Marketing, Tavant.

“Engaging Genworth’s customers in the website redesign significantly helped identify what users loved and wanted to retain from the old website, and what new features and improvements they expect from the new one.  And it enabled us to validate our design and functionality iteratively. We are delighted that the website has been recognized by HousingWire,” he concluded.
