Existing business will convert to the new platform at renewal. Guidewire PartnerConnect™ Consulting partners, EY and Sollers Consulting, have worked collaboratively with TATV and Guidewire to deliver a successful project.
“It has been gratifying to see this deployment go live ahead of schedule. A key factor in this has been our proactive and agile approach to defining and prioritizing project specification and scope,” said Helene Portegies, Chief Executive Officer, TATV. “Our Guidewire technology investment will add the firepower we need to continue our transformation towards heightened customer experience and optimum performance.”
Guidewire Core and Data products are enabling TATV to:
- Eliminate operational risk posed by legacy systems;
- Work towards significant business growth, supported by the same staff numbers; and
- React faster to market change with improved product and pricing flexibility.

EY has brought its local insurance market knowledge and Guidewire expertise to TATV’s transformation project with a responsibility for Programme Management, Business Analysis, Functional Solution Overview, Testing, Business Readiness, Security and Release Management. EY has also been responsible for overall data migration, employing its proprietary NextGen Datamigration Accelerator, which reduces migration workload.

“Touring Assurances, like Sollers Consulting, is a very Agile organization,” said Grzegorz Ukela, Manager, Sollers Consulting. “Both companies are devoted to Agile principles and focused on building a healthy project environment, which makes cooperation smooth, and gives fast results. We have finished the first project phase earlier than we expected, delivering business value, aligned with Touring Assurances’ ambitious strategy.”
