WEST DES MOINES, Iowa and SAN MATEO, Calif., June 11, 2012

GuideOne Insurance, a national niche market insurer, and Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of core system software to Property/Casualty insurers, today announced that GuideOne has selected Guidewire ClaimCenter® as its new claims management system. ClaimCenter will be deployed for the Workers’ Compensation line of business first, followed by GuideOne’s other lines. GuideOne has teamed with Guidewire PartnerConnect™ alliance member, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Guidewire for the implementation.

GuideOne Insurance sought to simplify its claims operations by consolidating the number of systems its adjusters need to do their jobs and by automating many of the routine tasks involved in the claims process so that adjusters could focus their attention on better servicing their customers and agents. The company also sought to modernize its claims platform to ensure that it has a solid technology foundation for future growth.

“We wanted to ensure that our employees have the best technology available to help them to do their jobs as efficiently and effectively as possible,” said Roger Nebergall, Director, Property/Casualty Claims, GuideOne Insurance. “ClaimCenter will not only support their efforts it will also enable us to offer more robust and flexible customer- and agent-facing services.”

ClaimCenter will help GuideOne Insurance achieve operational efficiencies including:

  • At-a-glance status on all claims;
  • Single system sign-on eliminating the need for repetitive data entry;
  • Simplified first notice of loss and correspondence generation processes;
  • Automatic claims assignment and workload balancing; and
  • Automated adjuster workplans and adjuster reporting capabilities.

“Guidewire’s insurance expertise, market reputation and professionalism were key factors in our selection process,” Nebergall added. “We are excited about the claims handling best practice processes we will be able to implement and the overall visibility we will gain into our claims operations.”

“We are happy to welcome GuideOne Insurance to the Guidewire customer family,” said Marcus Ryu, Chief Executive Officer, Guidewire Software. “We are looking forward to helping them achieve success with their claims transformation project.”
