Buckle, a tech-enabled financial service company, and Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), the platform P&C insurers trust to engage, innovate, and grow efficiently, today announced that Buckle is leveraging ClaimCenter to deliver service excellence and drive process improvements. The company is also leveraging SmartCOMM™ from Smart Communications for customer communications management. Guidewire is a reseller of Smart Communications, a Guidewire PartnerConnect Solution member.
Buckle launched in 2017 as a managing general agency (MGA) start-up to offer insurance to rideshare drivers first in the state of Georgia. In June 2020, the company acquired Gateway Insurance Company, formerly an indirect subsidiary of Guidewire customer Atlas Financial Holdings, Inc. Buckle examined ClaimCenter’s capabilities and saw that it addressed many of the company’s needs as it looks to grow and expand into other states, including Buckle’s recent launch in Tennessee in January.
“Claims is an important element in Buckle’s auto insurance product offering as today’s customers expect fast and accurate service,” said George Rosen, Vice President, Buckle TPA. “Using a state-of-the-art claims system like Guidewire will enable us to serve our members and customers as quickly as possible, and accurately every time. As the foremost leader in the industry, Guidewire is the best choice as Buckle continues to roll out its rideshare only insurance throughout the U.S.”
“We welcome Buckle to the Guidewire customer community with its use of ClaimCenter,” said Frank O’Dowd, chief sales officer, Guidewire Software. “We admire and look forward to seeing Buckle achieve its mission of building products to support the insurance and financial services needs of drivers in the shared economy.”
