This report describes the implementation of a web portal for Berkley Mid-Atlantic Group (BMAG), a property and casualty insurance company based in Richmond, Virginia. BMAG previously had a limited web presence, with a website only available to Independent Insurance Agents licensed to sell BMAG products. This website did not offer all of the information BMAG wanted to share with their Agents. In addition, they wanted to reach a larger audience. The report will describe BMAG's web presence prior to the project, objectives of the project, tasks involved in all project phases, and challenges encountered. The appendices contain various project tools used and give samples of code.
