AUSTIN, Texas and FOSTER CITY, Calif., November 11, 2014

Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of software products to Property/Casualty (P/C) insurers, today announced that Texas Mutual Insurance Company (Texas Mutual) has selected Guidewire PolicyCenter® as its new underwriting, rating, and policy administration system and Guidewire BillingCenter® to manage its billing operations, including agency and direct bill and commissions calculation.

After successfully deploying Guidewire ClaimCenter® in early 2014, Texas Mutual will now be implementing PolicyCenter and BillingCenter in an effort to streamline its policy and billing system infrastructure and business processes. PolicyCenter and BillingCenter will provide Texas Mutual with a more intuitive and configurable platform, and allow the company to gain the flexibility required to remain competitive in an evolving market.   

“PolicyCenter and BillingCenter provide strong support for our agent-driven workers’ compensation business,” said Stacie Feller, vice president, Underwriting Systems, Texas Mutual.  “Our experience with ClaimCenter and the Guidewire team over the past several years and the ability to implement a single insurance suite across multiple divisions were key drivers behind our decision to standardize on Guidewire InsuranceSuite.”

PolicyCenter and BillingCenter will enable Texas Mutual to:

  • Improve service levels for customers and brokers due to increased operational efficiencies;
  • More easily and quickly implement system changes; and
  • Leverage a modern platform to consolidate and standardize account management and billing systems and handling processes.
