LähiTapiola Deploys Guidewire InsuranceSuite to Support Strategic Development
Finnish mutual insurer transforming core systems for modernized IT and improved customer experience
LähiTapiola is gradually replacing its current legacy systems in three phases. All Non-Life new business will be run on InsuranceSuite and existing business will be migrated, starting with its Private lines of insurance.
“Following an extensive vendor search LähiTapiola selected Guidewire based on their strong reputation and credibility, the usability of their software, and Proof of Concept results,” said Mikko Vastela, CIO, LähiTapiola. “As part of our strategic programme, and enabled through our InsuranceSuite deployment, we will have a renewed core system suite that can deliver a range of efficiencies and improvements in user experience both for internal and external users.”
Guidewire InsuranceSuite is enabling LähiTapiola to:
- Improve cost efficiency by harmonizing and automating operational processes;
- Provide new systems functionality through modern processes and interfaces; and
- Proactively deliver simpler, more flexible products to enhance customer service, and support increased acquisition and retention.
“With InsuranceSuite we will be able to provide an improved customer
experience with more tailored products and services,” commented
“We congratulate LähiTapiola on their initial deployment and look
forward to continuing our work together,” said
