MARIETTA, Pa., and SAN MATEO, Calif., November 16, 2005

Donegal Insurance Group, a group of insurance companies providing full lines of personal and commercial insurance, and Guidewire Software®, a leading provider of solutions to property and casualty and workers' compensation insurers, today announced that Donegal Insurance Group has selected Guidewire ClaimCenter® as the insurer's new claims processing system. ClaimCenter will support all lines of business and end-to-end claim processing for Donegal.

"While our claims department has an outstanding performance record, we felt we could provide our policyholders and agents even better service with an investment in a new system," said Charles M. Ferraro, senior vice president and chief information officer, Donegal Insurance Group. "We conducted a comprehensive search to find our claims staff the best next-generation claims solution available, selecting Guidewire ClaimCenter due to its extensive functionality, intuitive web interface, and ease of use. In fact, our users required less than a day of ClaimCenter training to get up and running on the system using basic functionality during a pilot phase."

ClaimCenter provides the Donegal Insurance claims department with the tools to modernize and improve the level of service offered to all claim process stakeholders: policyholders, agents, and Donegal departments and management. Using ClaimCenter, Donegal is able to:

  • Automate and streamline the claims process for all lines of business with a single claim system;
  • Enable remote offices and users to access the claims system from anywhere;
  • Create electronic claims files for ease of information sharing between relevant parties;
  • Improve management reporting capabilities through enhanced data capture; and
  • Automatically assign claims and tasks to adjusters based on their expertise level and workload.

"We are pleased to provide Donegal Insurance Group with a web-based claims solution that will enable their claims organization to improve upon their already excellent service record," said John Raguin, president, Guidewire Software. "We welcome Donegal as a customer and partner, and look forward to working with them on this claims project."
