Donegal Insurance Group has selected Guidewire Software’s Insurance Platform Core and Data products to replace legacy systems, in a move designed to modernise the way it does business.
Donegal says it will implement the products for all of its lines of business, beginning with workers’ compensation, followed by its other commercial lines, and concluding with personal lines.
“We view Guidewire as the industry leader in P&C software and have developed a very close relationship with Guidewire through our past ClaimCenter and BillingCenter product implementations. These factors played a huge role in our selection process,” said Michael Simms, Assistant Vice President, Information Technology, at Donegal.
Sanjay Pandey, Senior VP and Chief Information Officer at Donegal, added, “By selecting Guidewire for our policy administration and data analytics platforms, we will be able to streamline our workflows and significantly enhance processing efficiency.”
“We feel that Guidewire’s product and technology roadmaps are closely aligned with Donegal’s business and growth strategies and that the Guidewire platform will support our current and future technology needs.”
Rajcan Surface, Principal, Ernst & Young LLP, added, “The EY team is excited to work with Donegal on this next phase of their transformation journey. We look forward to a successful implementation of these projects.”
Steve Sherry, Chief Sales Officer, Guidewire Software, added, “We are humbled that Donegal has extended its relationship with Guidewire and applaud its recognition of the advantages the additional Insurance Platform Core and Data products will have in running its business.”
“We admire the company’s mission of focusing on excellent customer service, fair claims handling, underwriting profitability, and innovative marketing through the independent agency system, and look forward to helping the company continue to adapt and succeed in a rapidly-changing insurance marketplace.”
