Guidewire (NYSE: GWRE) and EvolutionIQ announced that EvolutionIQ has joined Guidewire PartnerConnect as a new Solution partner. The Built by Guidewire integration will allow Guidewire users to harness EvolutionIQ’s Claims Guidance within ClaimCenter, providing a unified workflow for users and streamlining data transmission between systems. Guidewire has also made a strategic investment in EvolutionIQ, renewing its mission to support companies across the insurance ecosystem that offer innovative solutions to its customer base.
The strategic partnership combines market-leading technologies to help insurers transform their claims processes, helping sick and injured claimants recover and return to work faster while reducing claim losses and expenses. EvolutionIQ’s artificial intelligence (AI)-powered Claims Guidance actively monitors open insurance claims to guide frontline operators to claims that require more attention, new actions, or complex decision-making. With this guidance, claims handlers can provide more accurate decisions, deliver enhanced claimant experience, and manage claim durations cost effectively.
“EvolutionIQ is delighted to partner with Guidewire and make it easier for our shared customers to leverage AI in the claims handling process,” said Tomas Vykruta, co-Founder & CTO, EvolutionIQ. “This partnership represents an endorsement of Claims Guidance by a leading global insurance leader, with the scale and reputation to influence industry technology standards and trends now and in the future,” Vykruta further observed.
“We are excited to welcome EvolutionIQ as a new Solution partner and combine the power of Guidewire Cloud with the insight and efficiency of EvolutionIQ’s Claims Guidance,” said Roger Arnemann, General Manager & Senior Vice President, Analytics, Guidewire. “Just as we’re constantly evolving our own platform to anticipate customer needs, we seek partnerships that will help our customers transform their operations. Making EvolutionIQ part of the Guidewire ecosystem is part of that ongoing commitment.”
EvolutionIQ pioneered Claims Guidance in 2019. Its explainable AI guides insurance claims professionals to their highest potential impact claims, improving the claimant experience and delivering better claim outcomes to claimants, carriers and their customers. EvolutionIQ serves the group disability, individual disability and workers’ compensation markets worldwide. EvolutionIQ’s AI native products have been adopted by 70% of the top 15 U.S. disability carriers and a growing list of workers’ compensation carriers. The New York-based company employs 120 staff across the United States, Europe and Australia. For more information, visit www.evolutioniq.com and follow the company on LinkedIn.
