The LähiTapiola Group, Finnish mutual group of companies, and Guidewire Software, Inc.

"As part of our strategic programme, and enabled through our InsuranceSuite deployment, we will have a renewed core system suite that can deliver a range of efficiencies and improvements in user experience both for internal and external users."

Guidewire InsuranceSuite is enabling LähiTapiola to:

  • Improve cost efficiency by harmonizing and automating operational processes;
  • Provide new systems functionality through modern processes and interfaces; and
  • Proactively deliver simpler, more flexible products to enhance customer service, and support increased acquisition and retention.

"With InsuranceSuite we will be able to provide an improved customer experience with more tailored products and services," commented Christine Dahlman, Program Director, LähiTapiola.
