Find expertise, gain insights, and transform your business by leveraging more than 23,000+ professionals who work in the PartnerConnect network.
More than just a network of 23,000+ consultants, PartnerConnect partners are world-class leaders in their respective fields. Every insurer tries to do three simple things: engage with customers and partners, innovate freely, and grow efficiently. No matter what your unique goals are, PartnerConnect Consulting partners have the expertise and resources to help you get there.
The PartnerConnect Consulting program offers three tiers: Select, Advantage, and Global Premier. Tiers recognize and reward partners for attaining sales goals, participating in active implementations, developing go-to-market skills by region, and achieving specializations.
The Guidewire specializations are typically regionally based unless noted as a global badge and require partners to demonstrate skills and competency in a particular Guidewire product or solution area. The achievement of specializations shows you the investments that partners have made to achieve expert status in a particular domain.
