Guidewire Completes ISCS Purchase; Introduces Cloud-based Solution

Staff Writer | February 17, 2017

Guidewire Software announces the completion of its acquisition of ISCS. Guidewire also announced the immediate availability of Guidewire InsuranceNow, a cloud-based, all-in-one solution that supports the P&C insurance lifecycle.  

“Guidewire’s acquisition of ISCS enables it to add a proven option to the market,” says Karen Furtado, partner, Strategy Meets Action. “It also illustrates the growing importance of the cloud with respect to the solutions that vendors are providing to the P&C market.”

“We are excited to broaden our platform with the addition of InsuranceNow,” says Anthony Lye, chief cloud officer, Guidewire. In addition, the acquisition of ISCS offers us additional IP and experience that will help accelerate our delivery of new cloud-based products and services.”

As an all-in-one system, InsuranceNow includes key core functionality for policy administration, billing, and claims management. It also includes data and digital functionality, such as agent access and consumer portals, document management, reinsurance, business intelligence, and producer management, within a single system.

Key InsuranceNow attributes and benefits include:

  • Cloud-based delivery and ongoing operational support frees insurers to focus on innovation and respond rapidly to market demands, even when they have limited IT support;
  • Functionality that supports data and analytics and digital engagement in addition to core operations, delivering an all-in-one integrated solution and resulting in less complexity for insurers;
  • An integrated design and guided implementation approach for shorter project timeframes and quicker upgrades; and
  • A common user interface and fewer login screens that simplify the system login process, reduce training times, and improve collaboration between agents, insurers, employees, and partners.

“InsuranceNow is ideally suited to insurers who want to better compete with modern technology but lack the IT resources and model to get there,” says Andy Scurto, former CEO and founder of ISCS and now head of products for Guidewire InsuranceNow. “Its integrated design, out-of-the-box functionality, and guided approach enable rapid implementation and quick upgrades.”
