Our Work

Worldwide Broker Network
International website and web-based portal for a global network

WBN Global, the largest indepently owned, global network of insurance brokers, had a problem. Their members needed a platform that met quite a few requirements.

It needed to:

  • Introduce WBN to the public
  • Allow WBN members to learn about each other
  • Be a resource for Member Data Sheets
  • Allow secure and private chat amongst members
  • Securely transfer large files
  • Allow members to self administer profiles

These were just a couple of the challenges Robert Sterngold, CIO of WBN, had for us.

We approached this project with an international perspective. We knew visitors would be accessing the site from all over the world and had to consider internet speeds would vary greatly.

Our solution was to implement a combination of ajax and push-states, which we’ve dubbed “Instant Push”. Instant Push, combined with smart pre-fetching and pre-loading, allows visitors to click around the website with virtually no delay. The site feels like everything loads instantly.

Lets work together

We hope our unique approach and implementation resonated with you. If you're interested in learning more and possibly working with our team, please reach out, it'd be our pleasure to connect with you.

Rocklin Web Design

Custom website, applications and web-based software (SaaS) built locally... with love.

Grey Sky Media turns concepts into functioning, custom, web applications and web-based software platforms.

Our hope is that you found us because you appreciate the unique; to you, outside-the-box isn't just "nice", it's a prerequisite.

We can make your concept reality

We build high-end marketing sites, eCommerce platforms, employee intranets, training & comunication portals, on-boarding platforms... the list goes on and on.

If you're looking for a highly capable, slightly obsessive, team to bring your idea to life, look no further.

We'd love to chat with you, give us a ring, or if you're in the neighborhood, stop on by.
