Guidewire PolicyCenter® and BillingCenter helping regional Property/Casualty insurer enhance operational efficiencies and increase its speed-to-market

MONTEREY,Calif. & FOSTER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 17, 2017-- Capital Insurance Group (CIG), a leading regional Property and Casualty (P&C) insurer serving the Western U.S., and Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE:GWRE), a provider of software products to P&C insurers, today announced that CIG has successfully deployed Guidewire PolicyCenter® and BillingCenter as its new underwriting, policy administration, and billing management solution.

CIG deployed PolicyCenter and BillingCenter to replace its previous policy administration and billing management systems.

PolicyCenter and BillingCenter are enabling Capital Insurance Group to:

  • Enhance operational efficiencies by standardizing underwriting, policy administration, and billing management on a common platform;
  • Improve the ease of doing business for agents and customers through the enhancement of self-service and collaboration options;
  • Reduce system maintenance costs due to the flexibility of the systems; and
  • Increase its responsiveness to the market by having the ability to more quickly roll out new product and pricing.
