Guidewire Announces Availability of its First P&C Insurance CRM Applications for Salesforce Financial Services Cloud

Jaa

Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of software products to Property and Casualty (P&C) insurers, today announced its first two digital applications for Salesforce Financial Services Cloud designed to deliver Customer Relationship Management (CRM) optimized for the unique needs of the P&C insurance industry. The applications, Guidewire ProducerEngage™ for Salesforce Financial Services Cloud and Guidewire ServiceRepEngage™ for Salesforce Financial Services Cloud, will empower captive agents and customer service representatives to better engage with their customers through stronger alignment between marketing, sales, and service, while surfacing actionable insights through the integration of policyholder data between Guidewire and Salesforce applications.

ProducerEngage for Salesforce Financial Services Cloud gives captive agents robust sales and self-service tools and current policyholder information, so they can maximize the value of their relationships with their customers. With ProducerEngage, agents can interact more efficiently with reduced manual processes since they no longer need to switch between systems or re-key information. ServiceRepEngage for Salesforce Financial Services Cloud helps customer service representatives and call center agents deliver the informed and empowered service that today’s policyholders expect by providing an easy-to-navigate application that provides a holistic view of policyholders and their accounts, helping them to more effectively service and retain their customers.

“Insurers, especially those with captive or employed agents, are investing in digital capabilities that simplify the process of knowing and managing the customer relationship well beyond the functionality found in standard core applications,” said Karlyn Carnahan, Head of Celent’s Property Casualty practice in the Americas. “Guidewire’s new products, which have been specifically designed to optimize the functionality provided by Salesforce, enable carriers to significantly expand their ability to support the agents and optimize a differentiated customer relationship.”

These Guidewire Digital applications reflect significant R&D engineering investment since the Guidewire and Salesforce collaboration was announced in September 2017, and will benefit P&C insurers by providing a consistent and integrated 360-degree view of their customers across the Guidewire and Salesforce platforms. With a view to reducing future total cost of ownership, this productized integration between Salesforce and Guidewire enables insurers to be confident that they will benefit from future product enhancements, with the benefits of the Salesforce platform.

Having complete customer visibility is a critical need for insurers running customer-centric operations and serves as a foundation for future joint capabilities, such as optimizing leads, and increasing customer retention. These applications bring together the strengths of the world’s #1 CRM platform and Guidewire’s P&C insurance industry platform for high-quality insurance experiences, operations, and data optimized for the unique needs of P&C insurance, and empower insurers to meet heightened customer expectations.

“Technology has vastly changed the way customers expect to interact with insurers, so these companies need to provide more personalized and engaging experiences to compete,” said Rohit Mahna, SVP and GM of Financial Services, Salesforce. “Guidewire understands this imperative, and we’re excited to provide our mutual customers with the combined power of Salesforce Financial Services Cloud and Guidewire’s deep industry-specific capabilities.”

"Insurers are recognizing the importance of customer centricity and front-office digital enablement," said Ayan Sarkar, Principal Business Owner - Digital, Guidewire Software. "We are excited to collaborate with Salesforce, a formidable authority in cloud-based CRM, and bring together our Engage applications integrated into their CRM platform. This productized integration between our platforms will help insurers transform the distribution and service of their products, to the benefit of both their businesses and their policyholders."

Norsk Titanium Marks Milestone in U.S. Production17.7.2018 10:00Tiedote

The University of Notre Dame Turbomachinery Laboratory (NDTL), Norsk Titanium US, Inc. (Norsk), Pratt & Whitney and TURBOCAM International are collaborating to develop and test additively manufactured turbomachinery components. This collaboration will focus on exploring the applicability of Norsk’s Rapid Plasma Deposition™ (RPD™) material to turbomachinery applications. As part of this effort, NDTL will test an additively manufactured integrally bladed rotor (IBR) produced and inspected to meet the applicable quality specifications used in Pratt & Whitney’s current turbomachinery components. The team has completed the initial phase of testing, with TURBOCAM International conducting machining trials of Norsk’s RPD™ material, and Pratt & Whitney successfully inspecting the material to the same specification as forged turbomachinery components. The material’s manufacturing qualities were evaluated for applicability to TURBOCAM’s precision milling processes. “We were very pleased with the

More Than Half of Sub-Saharan Africa to Be Connected to Mobile by 2025, Finds New GSMA Study17.7.2018 10:00Tiedote

More than half the population of Sub-Saharan Africa will be subscribed to a mobile service by 2025, according to the latest edition of the GSMA’s Mobile Economy report series, published at the GSMA ‘Mobile 360 – Africa’ event being held in Kigali this week. The new report forecasts that there will be 634 million unique mobile subscribers1 across Sub-Saharan Africa by 2025, equivalent to 52 per cent of the population, up from 444 million (44 per cent) at the end of last year. The report also calculates that the mobile ecosystem will add more than $150 billion in value to Sub-Saharan Africa’s economy by 2022, equivalent to almost 8 per cent of regional GDP. “For many citizens across the region, particularly those living in rural areas, a mobile phone is not just a communications device but also the primary channel for getting online and a vital tool for improving their lives,” commented John Giusti, Chief Regulatory Officer at the GSMA. “More needs to be done to extend connectivity to th

GSMA Finds That Consumers in Developing Countries Are Hard Hit by High Spectrum Prices17.7.2018 09:00Tiedote

Better spectrum pricing policies are needed in developing countries to improve the economic and social welfare of the billions of people that remain unconnected to mobile broadband services, according to a new report, ‘Spectrum Pricing in Developing Countries’, released by the GSMA today at the Mobile 360 – Africa conference in Kigali. The study reveals that spectrum prices in developing countries are, on average, more than three times higher than in developed countries, when income is taken into account. This high spectrum pricing is a major roadblock to increasing mobile penetration. Authored by GSMA Intelligence, the study also found that governments are playing an active role in increasing spectrum prices to maximise state revenues from spectrum licensing. High spectrum prices are linked to countries with high levels of sovereign debt, and alarmingly average reserve prices in spectrum auctions are more than five times higher in developing countries than in developed, once income is
