Hearsay Systems Joins Guidewire PartnerConnect Solution Alliance Program

Hearsay to offer a streamlined experience that helps agents take client interactions to a new level

SAN FRANCISCO, and SAN MATEO, Calif., October 10, 2019

Hearsay Systems, the trusted leader in compliant digital communications and workflow solutions for the financial services industry,  and Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), provider of the industry platform Property and Casualty (P&C) insurers rely upon, today announced that Hearsay has joined Guidewire PartnerConnect™ as a Solution partner.

Hearsay offers innovative, compliant solutions designed to reinvent the client experience across the financial services industry. These advances help drive productivity, empowering insurance agents to more effectively cultivate new prospects as well as retain and expand relationships and product portfolios with existing clients. Hearsay solutions also increase operational efficiency by facilitating meaningful connections between agents and clients.

The company’s open and extensible APIs allow insurers to seamlessly integrate Hearsay with the foundational elements of their ecosystems, enriching their CRMs, deepening their analytics capabilities, and enabling multi-channel client journeys. Hearsay’s planned integration with Guidewire BillingCenter™ is a natural progression as Guidewire InsurancePlatform™ unifies software and services with its extensive partner ecosystem to provide access to leading third-party solutions, including insurtechs, to help power its customers’ businesses.

“This partnership will enable our joint customers to get the most out of both companies’ solutions, making it even easier for agents to be successful,” said Eugene Lee, Vice President of Solutions at Hearsay Systems. “Guidewire’s comprehensive ecosystem embraces insurtechs, and Hearsay will add value to InsurancePlatform by integrating our digital communications tools and compliant workflow solutions.”

"Insurers and their agents need access to the best products - be they from established solution providers or insurtechs - to help them gain an advantage and enable them to succeed in today’s competitive market. It is our focus to make the tasks of finding, testing, and integrating these solutions easier for P&C insurers,” said Neil Betteridge, Vice President, Strategy, Guidewire Software. “We are pleased to welcome Hearsay as a new Guidewire PartnerConnect Solution partner and look forward to them contributing to the Guidewire Marketplace.”
