San Francisco, California - based Esurance offers online automobile insurance to drivers in 30 states across the United States. The company also offers home-owners, renters, health, and life insurance. Online insurer Esurance recently moved to Microsoft Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server for more comprehensive application life-cycle management. Consequently, the company has reduced development costs by approximately 20 percent. It also has improved the quality of its applications, because developers now have visibility into project business requirements and status, and they can avoid rework.
