MARIETTA, Pa. & FOSTER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 12, 2014-- Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of software products to Property/Casualty insurers, today announced that Donegal Insurance Group has selected Guidewire BillingCenter® to provide it with a new billing system.

BillingCenter will enable Donegal to:

  • Quickly enhance the system to continue delivering outstanding customer service.

“A modern, configurable application like BillingCenter makes it easier for policyholders and agents to work together and for us to provide the best possible experience to our customers,” added Pandey.

“We welcome Donegal as a Guidewire BillingCenter customer, and we are pleased to extend our relationship with them,” said Dan Gordon, vice president, Product Management, Guidewire Software. “We admire their dedication to increasing service levels for their customers and agents, and we look forward to helping them transform their billing operations.”
