Company InfoQuick Silver Systems, Inc.
Our current project is developing the core system for the Mercury Insurance Policy and Claims Processing System - we are building out its base functionality as well as adding an advanced API to facilitate the fastest possible times to live.
Our people come from various backgrounds including insurance, banking, and telecommunications. However, our key people have been heavily involved in the insurance industry and have decades of experience in P&C Insurance.
We are utilizing the latest technologies including building the core system from the ground up in node.js. Our screens use CSS Grid which was released in early 2018 to help systems display well in both mobile and computer environments.
We are using a 100% automated test first process which requires all lines of code to be executed and tested before they pass to QA. Our automated testing process ensures the systems and their modifications work before humans ever look at a single change!

i18n comes from the word "Internationalization" where the first letter is "I" and the last letter is "n" with 18 characters in between. So, you may ask, isn't internationalization and localization the same? Actually, NO!
There is a lot of confusion because these concepts are relatively new as well as...
