Specialty Lines Insurer Implements Guidewire Solutions

Staff Writer | December 14, 2015

Endurance Specialty Holdings Ltd., and Guidewire Software announce that Endurance has successfully implemented Guidewire PolicyCenter as its new underwriting and policy management solution. Endurance also implemented Guidewire Client Data Management.

Following a successful ClaimCenter deployment, Endurance selected PolicyCenter to replace its previous policy administration systems, which consisted of multiple, discrete systems requiring significant testing and maintenance to ensure peak performance. Endurance successfully deployed PolicyCenter for its retail and wholesale excess casualty insurance lines of business, with approximately 40 concurrent users. This number is expected to grow to 100 users with future deployments.

As part of the next phase of the implementation project, Endurance will focus on implementing PolicyCenter for its professional liability insurance line of business in London. Endurance plans to follow with the implementation of BillingCenter in 2016 as the final component of an integrated, end-to-end technology platform that takes advantage of the full functionality and benefits the Guidewire platform has to offer.

“Our PolicyCenter implementation has gone smoothly and user feedback has been positive. In fact, the feedback on the first day of deployment was the best I have received since I began my insurance career,” says Alfred Goxhaj, CIO of Endurance. “By following a mainly out-of-the-box implementation approach, with only minor customization, we were able to complete the project within a compressed timeframe and under budget.”

PolicyCenter is enabling Endurance to:

  • Enhance customer service levels and satisfaction by providing a fully automated solution rich in functionality;
  • Increase business agility by bringing new products and product enhancements to market more quickly by minimizing custom development and multiple phase approaches;
  • Improve operational efficiencies and lower the cost per transaction by significantly reducing manual intervention; and
  • Enhance data and analytical capabilities by standardizing on a modern, well-built software technology platform that provides a vast and granular data set.

 “I commend the Guidewire technical and account teams, who provided immensely valuable advice and support throughout the implementation process, thereby establishing a strong partnership overall,” says Goxhaj. “This implementation is a significant step in our journey to simplify our underwriting systems and processes onto a common set of platforms, giving us the speed-to-market, agility, and cost advantage necessary to enable our business strategy.”

“We congratulate Endurance on their quick and successful PolicyCenter deployment,” says Mike Polelle, chief delivery officer, Guidewire. “We are honored to provide the technology foundation that will help them adapt and succeed in the rapidly-changing insurance industry marketplace.”
