Inclusivity Index™

inclusivity Index

We believe that diversity in perspective yields better results and our Inclusivity Index™ is a step towards deliberately paying attention to or being aware of how poorly or well we are doing in this regard.

The Key Lime Inclusivity Index is meant to be used as a conversation starter that empowers our customers to have more effective dialogue around how to design more inclusive product and brand experiences both within their organization, between other teams and executive stakeholders, and with trusted partners and vendors, like Key Lime Interactive. Here’s why it’s significant:

  • It is a pilot light designed to help ignite a series of other strategic and important conversations inside the client organization.
  • It also helps businesses align the research they conduct to their DEI objectives.
  • It can be used as a starting point for future research projects, or can be used as a conversation starter with other teams at your company to pave the way for greater inclusivity.

The Inclusivity Index pairs two things:

  1. An evaluation of the representation of diverse perspectives in a user research study across five attributes in participant recruitment
  2. Directional nudges for future research.

Home & Renters Insurance Mobile UX Competitive Analysis

(Published Bi-Annual in March and September)

This Mobile UX Competitive benchmark report goes far beyond a basic heuristic evaluation or expert review. Additionally, thanks to our innovation arm Key Lime Labs, these insights are now available in a comprehensive platform designed for business intelligence leaders, market analysts, UX/CX strategists, and product managers who want on-demand access to the competition’s mobile customer experience.

Home & Renters Insurance Competitive Index Overview

Key Lime Interactive’s (KLI) Home/Renter’s Insurance Mobile Competitive Index Report reviews eight (8) of the largest home and renter’s insurance companies in the U.S. including:

  • Allstate
  • Farmers Insurance
  • Liberty Mutual
  • Nationwide
  • State Farm/span>
  • The Hartford
  • Travelers
  • USAA

KLI’s methodology is unique because it incorporates consumer preferences and goes far beyond a basic heuristic evaluation or expert review. An important part of our analysis is a 500-person survey of smartphone owners in which they are asked to weigh in and identify the features and capabilities that they consider critical for a successful experience with the mobile site or app offered by their home/renter insurance company.

KLI’s intent in creating this third-party syndicated report is to:

    1. Provide consumer-driven data to help guide insurance companies as they prioritize features to implement. This guidance will be based on the results of a current consumer survey.
    2. Summarize how the insurance companies differentiate themselves from their competitors through the capabilities and features that they offer.

View Competitive Benchmark Overview: Home/Renters Insurance Competitive Overview

Mobile UX Methodology

To create an overall score, we combine a capabilities assessment with user feature importance ratings. The capabilities assessment is created by examining the feature coverage of insurance sites and applications. User ratings are determined by a consumer survey and card sort.

Our review of the primary mobile properties includes a full verification of the insurance companies’ capabilities. The unmodified score represents feature coverage or the company’s offerings by category. This is a binary evaluation reflecting the possession of certain criteria.

Additional information about KLI’s methodology is detailed in the detailed report. Request Detailed Report.

Incorporating User Feedback

KLI conducted a consumer survey and card sort (n=500) to gather feedback about how customers prioritized features when using a home/renter’s insurance company’s mobile property. Individual feature scores were then weighted by their value to customers. The goal is to provide a metric of relative importance so that the highest-scoring company is also the one providing customers’ desired features.
