About Guidewire

Your success drives everything we do at Guidewire
Insurers have long been poorly served by technology vendors who lacked understanding of the P/C industry, underestimated the complex challenges involved, or oversold and under delivered against insurers’ expectation. There had been many vendor failures, and insurers lacked options other than to wrestle with the limitations of their aging legacy systems. Guidewire provides powerful software, but that is only part of the solution. We also provide you with the delivery expertise to successfully implement the system and commit to supporting you in the long run.

The must have for Insurance industry

I work in a team that implement the solution for a big insurance company. At the first, it is fast to understand how to customize simple things and having new features on no time in production. The problem comes with bugs, the IDE provide a really bad experience for debugging making really hard to solve things.

Pros

It comes with everything you need for your insurance company. It has the products, business logic, visuals, modularization, quality, safety, covers all fronts of an insurance business. It is stable, reliable, friendly and all ready to use from the starting point. It provides a perfect customer-focused solution without any customization and in a state of the art system.

Cons

As with any black box solution, it is sometimes very difficult for developers to customize it, especially complex rules and design. The views are very difficult to change, even changing the color of a button is a long way, since the html and the css are not easily accessible. It's really hard to debug, IDE is too slow for that and half of the time it can't follow the runtime and can't see any variable value. You need almost a gaming computer to run the server locally, the requirements are not reasonable

Worst system -Run fast away

Reviewed on 2018/08/13

Pros

In the quoting function the prior insurance reports are very helpful for underwriting purposes. The digital signature function is also a positive when issuing new business.

Cons

The system is very slow. When quoting coverage and making any changes to coverage options the system must completely refresh, this is very unproductive as just revising a quote can take well over an hour and this process should be a matter of a few minutes. This system cannot differentiate between a primary driver and an occasional driver, result is higher premiums to the consumer. Inconsistency when quoting, pricing changes nearly every time you review a quote. When quoting, this system doubled the time it takes to do a simple quote. This system is not efficient for the front end user. They need an agents forum, this system misses the mark completely and hinders productivity.
