Core Systems Feasibility

We use our Insurance Value Chain capability model to evaluate capability across your organization through facilitated workshops. These workshops are conducted with each functional area to define future state capabilities that the business needs to be competitive and achieve goals.

We accelerate the capability definition process by bringing an inventory of capabilities we have seen in the industry. We then work with your organization to assign high-level benefits to each of these capabilities. Ultimately, we use this information to assess whether it makes sense to move forward with some preliminary discussions with solution providers. Many times, we work with the solution providers to develop a preliminary business case.

Core Systems Availability & Readiness

We have a proven methodology for the evaluation of commercial off-the-shelf software. Our evaluation methodology is accelerated by our inventory of core systems functionality that we enhance and customize during the initial phases of the evaluation.

We conduct a two-phase filtering process to expedite the evaluation without losing credibility in selecting the right software package for your organization. We often will be asked to develop and evaluate RFI/RFP responses as part of the evaluation process. In some cases, we find it prudent to also include an analysis of existing core systems in the evaluation process. We use our prebuilt scoring models to agnostically evaluate the alternatives, and provide high-level implementation plans.

Improved Systems = Improved Service

“Our recent ClaimCenter implementation proved very beneficial in handling the influx of Hurricane Ike related claims. With ClaimCenter, we can immediately assign claims to the most qualified adjusters during the loss intake process, based on the expertise the claim requires and adjuster workloads, resulting in better and quicker policyholder service.”

Guidewire InsuranceSuite Upgrades

The implementation of core systems is a substantial undertaking. It requires patience, funding and time. We have found that clients sometimes have difficulty keeping current with Guidewire given the priorities businesses are faced with.
