Canadian Property and Casualty insurer to use Guidewire DataHub™ to
expedite data access
QUEBEC CITY & FOSTER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 9, 2017--
Promutuel Insurance, one of Quebec’s largest Property and Casualty (P&C)
insurers, and Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE:GWRE), a provider of
software products to P&C insurers, today announced that Promutuel
Insurance has selected Guidewire DataHub™ to support its enterprise-wide
data management strategy. Guidewire PartnerConnect™ Consulting
Advantage member, V-NEO, is leading the implementation project, with
Guidewire working in close collaboration.
Promutuel selected DataHub for more efficient data extraction and
translation, conformant data consolidation, and publication to
downstream systems. Promutuel is planning to first integrate its policy
data into DataHub and followed by claims, starting with its personal
lines of business, then moving on to its commercial lines of business,
with the goal of full deployment across its 17 member mutuals by 2018.
DataHub will enable Promutuel to:
More quickly deliver mission-critical data to users;
Better map and convert data into its new core systems; and
Provide a single view of data to users across the organization,
including claims and underwriting.
In an earlier project, Promutuel Insurance successfully deployed
Guidewire PolicyCenter®, Rating Management, and Reinsurance Management
as its platform for underwriting, rating, reinsurance, and policy
administration. The company was looking for a system to help increase
its operational efficiencies and continue its ongoing business
transformation initiative, building on its successful 2012 deployment of
Guidewire ClaimCenter®. PolicyCenter was successfully deployed to
Promutuel Insurance’s commercial and farm lines of business, and is
currently being implemented to its personal and surety lines of
business, with the goal of full deployment in 2018.
“We are enthusiastic about the prospect of using Guidewire DataHub as
our primary data source,” said Guy Lecours, chief operating officer,
Promutuel Insurance. “Integrating ClaimCenter and PolicyCenter with
DataHub will allow our users to retrieve data quickly and efficiently.”
“We are honored to continue Promutuel Insurance’s business
transformation journey,” said Marc Hughes, Executive Vice-President,
V-NEO. “As a favored supplier of Promutuel Insurance through our
five-year agreement, we look forward to leading this implementation
“We congratulate Promutuel Insurance on their successful PolicyCenter
implementation, and are pleased that they have extended their Guidewire
commitment with the selection of DataHub,” said Ken Shapiro, group vice
president, Americas Sales, Guidewire Software. “We are excited to work
with Promutuel Insurance to help them achieve their goal of more
effectively and efficiently accessing data from across their business.”
