Rockford Mutual Concludes Implementation of Guidewire InsuranceNow via Guidewire Cloud for Core Operations

Sponsored by Businesswire

Rockford Mutual Insurance Company, a Midwest Property and Casualty (P&C)
insurance provider, and Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), provider
of the industry platform P&C insurers rely upon, today announced that
Rockford Mutual has successfully implemented Guidewire InsuranceNow™, a
core component of Guidewire InsurancePlatform™ via Guidewire Cloud™, to
its commercial package policy and farm lines of business. With the
completion of this project, InsuranceNow is now implemented across the
company to modernize its technology platform and transform the way it
operates across all of its lines of business.

William Hanby, chief information officer, Rockford Mutual said, “It is
important for insurers to recognize that unless they evolve their
technology, it will be difficult for them to compete in the marketplace
in the future. Our previous environment consisted of disparate systems
and processes that required a wide variety of technical skills to
maintain, leading to a high level of complexity that affected our speed
to market.”

“The all-in-one nature of InsuranceNow and using configuration to make
changes made the implementation process faster and less risky, giving us
a high level of confidence in a successful project,” continued Hanby.
“Feedback from our users has been positive so far; they really like the
system’s intuitiveness and the new features and functionality available
to them.”

“We congratulate Rockford Mutual on the successful conclusion of its
InsuranceNow implementation project,” said David Burns, vice president,
Professional Services, InsuranceNow, Guidewire Software. “We applaud the
company’s mission of providing exceptional service, innovation,
security, and ease of doing business to its agents and customers, and
are pleased that our P&C core Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform is
enabling Rockford Mutual to adapt and succeed in a rapidly-changing
insurance market.”
