Featured Customer: Youi Insurance

We are delighted by the wide variety of businesses using Seq. This year we will be featuring some of our customers here, to share their experiences adopting Seq and structured logging.

This post was kindly provided by Matt Cole, Development Manager at Youi Insurance.

Youi provides insurance policies tailor-made to suit your individual needs and lifestyle. We aim to provide awesome service to all of our clients every time we have an opportunity to interact with them. We have a 30 person development team that is responsible for all of our internal and external systems, from our public website to our core insurance and financial systems.

We use Seq via Serilog as the logging platform for all of our recently developed applications. Seq has become an indispensable part of our solutions, allowing us to see what is happening in our production systems, and to troubleshoot and debug our testing environments.

It is particularly effective in allowing us to see into the interaction between services and trace through decoupled pub/sub architectures. It also makes it easy to combine logs from our on-premise deployments with our cloud-based deployments in one place.

The combination of powerful search capabilities and structured logging makes it easy to find fine-grained log events that with other logging technologies would be extremely difficult or impossible.

There is a Serilog sink for many of the frameworks we use (e.g. ASP.NET MVC/WebAPI, Nimbus, Akka.NET, TopShelf etc.) which makes pushing our logs to Seq very simple.

We are based on the Sunshine Coast in sunny Queensland and people can find out more about us (or do a quote!) at http://www.youi.com.au!
