Innovate Quickly

InsurancePlatform enables innovation through Guidewire Marketplace, a curation of platform add-ons to maximize value delivery from our most innovative partners. With a newly redesigned user interface, established players and InsurTechs are easy to search and find. Insurers can choose from the 90 Guidewire-validated third-party solution integrations available for download in the Guidewire Marketplace.

Simplify IT

For some insurers, growth goals can be inhibited by the increasing complexity of IT that can accompany growth. InsurancePlatform helps simplify the IT work that can slow insurers down, empowering the IT team to be a more strategic business partner. Among the architectural improvements included with InsurancePlatform 2018.2 are an enhanced business rules framework that creates a more efficient interface for business analysts to create rules. Additionally, a REST API framework that serves as the foundation of InsuranceSuite’s integration layer enables a sophisticated API ecosystem to simplify integrations for cloud deployments.
