To insurance professionals like actuaries or underwriters, creating a homeowners insurance quoting application in Excel is not difficult. If you have a list of base rates and rate factor, and know how to write formulas in Excel, it doesn't take too long to build an Excel rater. But creating a web application is a whole different story. It requires IT resources.

With SpreadsheetWeb, turning that Excel rater into a web application takes only minutes and you don't need any programming skills. Here is a homeowners insurance quoting application created from an Excel rater:

Aside from the fact that it uses dummy rates, it is a complete homeowners insurance quoting application. It even creates a quote document on the last page (press Get Quote button). You can also enable Save feature to store quote information in a database (no database skills required).
