Guidewire Software, a provider of software products to Property/Casualty (P/C) insurers, announced the launch of the Guidewire InsuranceCloud Solutions partner program.

Under the new program, select Guidewire PartnerConnect Consulting partners will deliver cloud solutions that combine Guidewire products with their own differentiated content and services, and complementary third-party systems for Property/Casualty insurers in a hosted environment.

Partners participating in the program will deploy and maintain Guidewire software, along with the other third-party products that round out their respective offerings.

Guidewire InsuranceCloud Solutions partners provide delivery options that bring high-performing technology to emerging and mid-size P/C insurers who may have previously been hesitant or unable to take on large-scale IT projects, while also providing a compelling option for larger insurers who are looking to quickly expand into new markets.

With Guidewire InsuranceCloud Solutions, insurers can combine the benefits of the Guidewire platform, including improved customer and agent engagement, lowered operating costs, and the ability to grow their business, with options for rapid deployment and cost-effective hosting.

"Guidewire has continually listened to its customers and the broader industry," said Karen Furtado, partner, Strategy Meets Action.

These InsuranceCloud Solutions will provide insurers delivery options to address their fundamental needs for a secure and scalable environment, while providing the technology platform for mission-critical core operations, digital interactions with customers and agents, and improved decision-making for more accurate decisions. Additionally, they provide insurers with options for:
Reduced implementation timeframes;

Lower total cost of ownership through solution conformance, uniform support, and maintenance; and
Increased flexibility for IT expertise.

Inaugural partners include: Capgemini, EY, and PwC.

InsuranceCloud Solutions are immediately available for P/C insurers in the U.S. and Canada and will expand globally in the future.

Guidewire InsuranceCloud Solutions combine Guidewire products, complementary software, and related services delivered in the cloud. With Guidewire at the core, InsuranceCloud Solutions are designed and delivered by a select group of authorized partners to enable P/C insurers to replace their legacy systems, transform their business, and optimize costs to increase return on their IT investment.
