EDMONTON, Alberta & SAN MATEO, Calif. — Peace Hills General Insurance Company (Peace Hills), a writer of personal and commercial automobile and property insurance across Western Canada and the Northern Territories, and Guidewire (NYSE: GWRE) announced that they have selected Guidewire Cloud to power their core systems, engage their policyholders and brokers without limits, adapt to changing market demands, and simplify their IT operations. Guidewire PartnerConnect Consulting Premier member EY Canada will be leading the implementation project.
By selecting Guidewire Cloud, Peace Hills will leverage InsuranceSuite as their system of record, Guidewire digital capabilities to deliver streamlined service to their agents and policyholders, and DataHub and InfoCenter for enterprise-wide data management and analytics. The company will also deploy Predict to embed predictive insights into InsuranceSuite workflows, turning their core system of record into a system of insight.
“By implementing Guidewire in the cloud, we will be able to take advantage of quicker updates, business continuity, and disaster recovery, spending less time on low-level tasks such as system maintenance and focusing more time on the high-value tasks of bringing new products and services to our brokers and clients,” said Peace Hills Vice President of Information Technology Ken McKnight. “We’ll also be able to utilize Guidewire Data Platform, the analytics applications, and make use of the training and support offered by Guidewire for such a large platform.”
McKnight added, “A unique aspect of Peace Hills is our high-touch approach. Guidewire Digital will supplement our existing portal and provide a streamlined, frictionless digital claims experience and faster turnaround times for our policyholders. We’ll also be able to easily integrate the best-in-class insurtech solutions that are part of Guidewire Marketplace and the PartnerConnect ecosystem into our workflows.”
“We’re excited to partner with Peace Hills Insurance on their core platform transformation program by designing, developing and implementing custom solutions using EY Nexus™ for insurance accelerators,” says EY Canada Insurance Business Consulting Leader Jennifer Baziuk. “From enhancing customer service and real-time broker connectivity to deploying new insurance options at speed, together we’ll drive enterprise agility and help clients achieve their insurance goals.”
“We are delighted to partner with Peace Hills in delivering on their mission to serve the indigenous community in Canada,” said Guidewire President and Chief Revenue Officer John Mullen. “With their 40-year history as a highly-respected brand helping this underserved community, we are honored they have selected Guidewire Cloud as the platform to deliver solutions and an exceptional customer experience.”
