Promutuel Insurance, one of Quebec’s largest Property and Casualty (P&C) insurers, and Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of software products to P&C insurers, today announced that Promutuel Insurance has selected Guidewire DataHub™ to support its enterprise-wide data management strategy. Guidewire PartnerConnect™ Consulting Advantage member, V-NEO, is leading the implementation project, with Guidewire working in close collaboration.
Promutuel selected DataHub for more efficient data extraction and translation, conformant data consolidation, and publication to downstream systems. Promutuel is planning to first integrate its policy data into DataHub and followed by claims, starting with its personal lines of business, then moving on to its commercial lines of business, with the goal of full deployment across its 17 member mutuals by 2018.
DataHub will enable Promutuel to:
More quickly deliver mission-critical data to users;
Better map and convert data into its new core systems; and
Provide a single view of data to users across the organization, including claims and underwriting.
In an earlier project, Promutuel Insurance successfully deployed Guidewire PolicyCenter®, Rating Management, and Reinsurance Management as its platform for underwriting, rating, reinsurance, and policy administration. The company was looking for a system to help increase its operational efficiencies and continue its ongoing business transformation initiative, building on its successful 2012 deployment of Guidewire ClaimCenter®. PolicyCenter was successfully deployed to Promutuel Insurance’s commercial and farm lines of business, and is currently being implemented to its personal and surety lines of business, with the goal of full deployment in 2018.
“We are enthusiastic about the prospect of using Guidewire DataHub as our primary data source,” said Guy Lecours, chief operating officer, Promutuel Insurance. “Integrating ClaimCenter and PolicyCenter with DataHub will allow our users to retrieve data quickly and efficiently.”
“We are honored to continue Promutuel Insurance’s business transformation journey” said Marc Hughes, Executive Vice-President, V-NEO. “As a favored supplier of Promutuel Insurance through our five-year agreement, we look forward to leading this implementation project.”
“We congratulate Promutuel Insurance on their successful PolicyCenter implementation, and are pleased that they have extended their Guidewire commitment with the selection of DataHub,” said Ken Shapiro, group vice president, Americas Sales, Guidewire Software. “We are excited to work with Promutuel Insurance to help them achieve their goal of more effectively and efficiently accessing data from across their business.”
