âGuild is a very customer-centric organization; our current systems were hindering our ability to fully deliver on our strategic vision,â said David Brown, General Manager, Guild Insurance. âGuidewire will enable us to transform and grow our business, operate and add new products more flexibly and above all, provide even better service to our clients.â
With Guidewire, Guild will gain the ability to:
â¢ Fundamentally change the way it does business through process flow automation and a flexible rules-driven architecture;
â¢ Operate its business more in line with its founding customer-centric principles;
â¢ Systemize and standardize its processes to gain efficiency and improved governance capabilities; and
â¢ Readily integrate core systems to all associated applications.
âThis is a significant enterprise-wide undertaking for Guild. To help us select the right vendor, we developed a âDecision Selection Modelâ at the outset of our project. This model was invaluable in helping us judge the strength of prospective vendors in areas of Process (functionality), Architecture, and Partnership,â said Robert Tepe, Chief Information Officer, Guild Insurance. âWe selected Guidewire as our business partner â for the quality of its people, its strong corporate values, product robustness, and the flexibility of its architecture.â
âGuild is addressing the challenge that many similar insurers face â the modernization of an âall-in-oneâ legacy insurance system,â said Ian Tavener, vice president, International Operations, Guidewire Software. âWe are thrilled that Guild has selected Guidewire applications and our approach to hollowing out the old system in favor of a modern application. We are convinced that this offers the most promising path to breakthrough performance.â
