US-based Westfield Insurance has deployed Guidewire ClaimCenter as its new platform for claims management.

Guidewire PartnerConnect Alliance member Ernst & Young (EY) supported Westfield to implement the system.

Westfield has selected the platform to increase its flexibility, operational efficiency, and effectiveness, as well as to keep pace with business growth.

Westfield Insurance national claims strategy leader Rob Bowers said: "ClaimCenter is a key component of our larger ongoing business transformation.

"We have been impressed with the robust functionality and precision that ClaimCenter has brought to our claims transactions and are looking forward to leveraging the system as a platform for our future growth."

The company also installed new document distribution and management systems and upgraded its analytics solutions and capabilities, concurrent with its ClaimCenter implementation.

ClaimCenter will allow Westfield to consolidate and standardize its claims handling systems, and also to integrate with third-party systems for a more seamless claims handling approach.

Westfield Insurance offers commercial insurance, personal insurance and surety services in the US.
