Donegal Insurance Group, a group of insurance companies providing full lines of commercial and personal insurance products, and Guidewire Software, a provider of the industry platform Property and Casualty (P&C) insurers rely upon, announced that Donegal has selected GuidewireInsurancePlatform Core and Data products to replace legacy systems and modernize the way it does business.
The company will implement the products for all of its lines of business, beginning with workers’ compensation, followed by its other commercial lines, and concluding with personal lines. GuidewirePartnerConnect Consulting member Ernst & Young LLP (EY) will support the implementation with Guidewire.
“We view Guidewire as the industry leader in P&C software and have developed a very close relationship with Guidewire through our past ClaimCenter and BillingCenter product implementations. These factors played a huge role in our selection process,” said Michael Simms, AVP, Information Technology, at Donegal.
“By selecting Guidewire for our policy administration and data analytics platforms, we will be able to streamline our workflows and significantly enhance processing efficiency. We feel that Guidewire’s product and technology roadmaps are closely aligned with Donegal’s business and growth strategies and that the Guidewire platform will support our current and future technology needs,” added Sanjay Pandey, SVP and CIO at Donegal.
“The EY team is excited to work with Donegal on this next phase of their transformation journey,” said Rajcan Surface, Principal, Ernst& Young LLP. “We look forward to a successful implementation of these projects.”
“We are humbled that Donegal has extended its relationship with Guidewire and applaud its recognition of the advantages the additional InsurancePlatform Core and Data products will have in running its business,” said Steve Sherry, Chief Sales Officer, Guidewire Software. “We admire the company’s mission of focusing on excellent customer service, fair claims handling, underwriting profitability, and innovative marketing through the independent agency system, and look forward to helping the company continue to adapt and succeed in a rapidly-changing insurance marketplace.”
