Mountain West Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance

Mountain West Farm Bureau

Quickly redesigns product offerings

Business Outcomes

  • Redesigned five personal lines of business in eight weeks 

  • Developed five personal lines of business on the cloud in 120 days 

  • Experienced updates in a matter of days versus months 

  • Trimmed time to complete policy changes to minutes instead of days 

The cloud product — especially the power of the cloud infrastructure in terms of speed and capabilities — is a force-multiplier. The ability to spin up environments at speeds that weren’t possible prior to this is, quite frankly, a game changer for everyone.

How Mountain West Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Company engages, innovates, and grows efficiently


Mountain West Farm Bureau was initially founded by the Wyoming Farm Bureau in 1948 and joined by the Montana Farm Bureau in 1958. Currently, the company offers multi-line insurance products to individuals, families, and small businesses throughout Wyoming and Montana, and in Colorado through a wholly owned company – 360 Insurance.

In June 2021, Mountain West turned to Guidewire to replace its legacy systems. The company subscribed to InsuranceSuite on Guidewire Cloud. Soon after making that decision, the insurer realized that speed would be a big part of its story.
