Ready for Guidewire Program Accelerates Property/Casualty Insurer Transformation

Ready for Guidewire provides Guidewire customers with validated accelerators at no added cost to better support and speed up transformation initiatives

San Francisco, Calif. (Feb. 13, 2015) – Guidewire Software, a provider of software products to Property/Casualty insurers, has announced the launch of the Ready for Guidewire program, which validates accelerators developed by Guidewire PartnerConnect™ Solution partners to ease integration with Guidewire InsuranceSuite products.

Ready for Guidewire accelerators have been rigorously reviewed by Guidewire, adhere to Guidewire software design principles, and meet established quality criteria. Completed Ready for Guidewire accelerators are validated that they effectively integrate with Guidewire InsuranceSuite products.

“Integration work on any core system replacement project is by far the most time-consuming and expensive part of that project,” said Neil Betteridge, vice president, Strategy, Guidewire Software. “We strive to help our customers reduce their system implementation efforts and risks and to more quickly transform their business. We are excited to launch our Ready for Guidewire program with over 20 validated Solution Partner-built accelerators to our customers today.”

Solution partners who have successfully completed the Ready for Guidewire accelerator process are eligible to use the Ready for Guidewire validation mark, which designates quality and a readiness to be integrated with Guidewire InsuranceSuite products. All Ready for Guidewire accelerators are published on the Guidewire Resource Portal and are available for download by Guidewire customers at no charge.

“The Ready for Guidewire program enables Guidewire and Hyland to work collaboratively – ensuring the OnBase accelerator adheres to the high standards that both of our organizations embrace,” said Bill Priemer, president and chief executive officer of Hyland, creator of OnBase. “We have already installed the OnBase for Guidewire accelerator at multiple organizations. The experience gained through the Ready for Guidewire program has equipped Hyland to meet the needs of our mutual clients and align with the Guidewire implementation plan to ensure faultless installations.”

Ready for Guidewire accelerators help insurers:

  • Ease integration of third-party applications to Guidewire core products;
  • Reduce project implementation time by using validated, pre-built integrations; and,
  • Trust that the accelerators align to the high quality of Guidewire software development standards.

Betteridge concluded, “These Ready for Guidewire accelerators help make insurer integration projects run more smoothly, saving time and money in the process. Guidewire customers can easily leverage our extensive community of Solution partners to support innovative transformation initiatives. We are excited by the possibilities of this program and look forward to growing it from here.”
