Auto Club of Southern California Deploys Guidewire ClaimCenter

Largest member of the AAA federation of clubs successfully deploys Guidewire ClaimCenter® to enable enhanced member claims service

LOS ANGELES, CA and SAN MATEO, CA, October 15, 2008 – The Automobile Club of Southern California (Auto Club), the largest member of the AAA federation of motor clubs and Guidewire Software®, a leading global provider of solutions to property and casualty insurers, today announced that the Auto Club’s insurance company has completed it’s initial deployment of Guidewire ClaimCenter.

Rather than attempt to add another layer to the previous claims system or simply update existing processes, the Auto Club’s insurer opted to find a system that would further strengthen claims service to Auto Club members and provide multiple benefits from changing technology. Guidewire worked with the Auto Club to meet a vigorous implementation schedule, successfully deploying ClaimCenter in just 8 months from project initiation.

Guidewire ClaimCenter is a leading end-to-end claims system for property and casualty insurance. ClaimCenter’s flexible business rules enable claims organizations to optimize and monitor the claim process. Claims executives can define, enforce, and continually refine their preferred claim handling practices. In addition, ClaimCenter uses a modern technology architecture, including a 100% Web client and Web services interface that enable lower total cost of ownership in any environment.

“Automobile Club of Southern California is to be commended on its quick implementation project,” said John Raguin, chief executive officer, Guidewire Software. “They had a specific timetable they wanted to deploy ClaimCenter in and we worked with them closely to ensure that they met their date. We look forward to continuing to assist their deployment efforts.”
