Guidewire Software and AgencyPort Form Alliance to Support Superior Ease of Doing Business
Agent-friendly upload and real-time support introduced for Guidewire PolicyCenter customers
AgencyPort Insurance Services, a leading provider of web-based property and casualty solutions and Guidewire Software®, a leading global provider of web-based core system solutions to property/casualty insurers, today announced they have formed an alliance to enable carriers to deliver superior ease of doing business for independent agency distribution partners.
This alliance will provide Guidewire PolicyCenter® customers with agent friendly real-time, application upload and transaction capabilities via AgencyPort’s AgencyConnect and AgencyPortal products. This will make real-time quoting from an agency management system more efficient and user friendly, with defaults, corrections and streamlined interviews to bridge gaps between the agency system and the insurer’s specific data requirements configured in PolicyCenter.
“Smart insurers continually look for ways to enhance their agent relationships by focusing on agents’ desire for improved ease of doing business with a carrier,” said Chad Hersh, principal analyst, Novarica. “Combining the modern portal solution, agency connectivity options, automated underwriting, and real-time policy administration capabilities that a combined AgencyPort/Guidewire solution provides would represent a dramatic improvement in most carriers’ ease of doing business initiatives.”
“In a market where carriers are strategically trying to differentiate how they transact business with agents, AgencyPort has demonstrated the unique ability to bridge the gap between agency systems and carriers’ underwriting/policy admin systems,” said Don Chase, Senior Vice President of Business Development, AgencyPort. “Through our alliance with Guidewire, PolicyCenter customers can now leverage agent friendly real-time transaction support and deliver the highest level of responsiveness and service associated with straight-thru-processing.”
“Increasingly property & casualty insurers recognize the need for real-time communications and transactions with agents; this alliance is a step in that direction,” said Priscilla Hung, vice president, Alliances and Corporate Development, Guidewire Software. “Guidewire and AgencyPort share a strong commitment to providing the P&C industry with the best possible solutions based on open integration with other best-of-breed components.”
