Guidewire | May 06, 2021

Guidewire Software, Inc., the platform P&C insurers trust to engage, innovate, and grow efficiently, today announced the availability of Guidewire's Usage-Based Insurance Solution. Planned in view of speed, the UBI Solution can be deployed inside 12 weeks and supports the start to finish insurance lifecycle including quote, billing, and automated claims consumption. Forrester Research projects usage-based insurance policies to grow 50 percent in 2021.1 “Increasing appetite for usage-based insurance (UBI) in personal auto will drive insurers to rethink how they help customers discover and use auto insurance,” wrote Jeffery Williams, senior analyst, Forrester Research in a recent blog post. “COVID-19 has ushered in a new paradigm where consumers are more conscious about price transparency. That will result in strong new business growth across the sector.”2 Accessible exclusively on Guidewire Cloud, Guidewire's UBI solution accelerates deployment with a prebuilt package of capabilities, services, and mixes with Guidewire PartnerConnect Solution partners, Cambridge Mobile Telematics and TrueMotion for telematics. "Personal lines insurers want to offer UBI as fast as possible to their customers, and with Guidewire they can in just a few months,” said Eugene Lee, senior vice president and general manager, Guidewire. “Guidewire’s UBI Solution was informed by our experience with multiple UBI-specific deployments, and unlike other offerings that focus only on product definition, the solution is designed to support the entire quote-to-claim lifecycle.” One of those UBI deployments was at CAA Insurance Company, Canada’s largest not-for-profit automobile association. “As the pandemic continues, so do the financial hardships faced by many households," said Matthew Turack, president of CAA Insurance Company. “In response, we quickly launched a new MyPace product using Guidewire to help our customers who were working from home save on auto insurance costs. Our customers appreciated our responsiveness and sales have exceeded our expectations with a 300 percent year-over-year increase in new auto policy sales and 72 percent increase in new customers.” CAA has been an in-production InsuranceSuite customer since 2012.
