Guidewire (NYSE: GWRE) and Transcard announced that Transcard’s new Ready for Guidewire validated accelerator is now available to ClaimCenter users in the Guidewire Marketplace.
Customer expectations surrounding claims, specifically claims payments, continue to rise. Now, according to Aite-Novarica, customers expect to receive funds not only in a manner that is convenient to them, but also as quickly as possible. In fact, many customers want the option of “real-time payments” to “receive funds instantly” from their insurer. These high, modern expectations need to be met with modern solutions.
Transcard’s SMART Suite is a secure, all-in-one payments platform that helps insurers meet their customers’ modern payment needs. It allows policyholders to choose their preferred payment method from a wide variety of modern payment types, from ACH and card to PayPal and Zelle.
With the Transcard Accelerator for Claims Payments, insurers can:
Easily access the SMART Hub dashboard within ClaimCenter;
Quickly make or schedule payments to customers or suppliers; and
Automatically reconcile payments in Guidewire in real-time without manual labor.
Transcard’s technology works with any existing bank account, so insurers aren’t required to set up or pre-fund new bank accounts to disburse funds electronically. Additionally, it offers pre-configured workflows for claim payouts, lienholder payments, and other business applications. SMART Hub is Transcard’s all-in-one portal for managing payments. SMART Hub’s dashboard provides access to payment insights in real-time and insurers can track all incoming and outgoing activity via the SMART Hub dashboard.
“Our embedded payment solutions extend the value of Guidewire by making it easier for insurers to make, receive, and manage payments of any type from a single platform, without having to set up or pre-fund a new bank account,” said Greg Bloh, CEO, Transcard. “Connecting our technologies helps our shared customers drive operational efficiency and improve customer satisfaction.”
“We applaud Transcard on the release of its new ClaimCenter app,” said Will Murphy, Vice President, Global Solution Alliances, Guidewire. “Transcard’s SMART solutions enable better payment control and visibility for insurers, while fulfilling policyholders’ modern payment needs and enhancing their experience.”
