Guidewire announces Hyland, creator of OnBase, as first ECM vendor in SolutionConnect program

cloud_lgThis week I walked the exhibit floor, attended sessions and met with friends at the annual Insurance Accounting and Systems Association (IASA) conference. I found many people excited about another opportunity to seek out vendors for ways to leverage technology. Most of them wanted to learn more about how to gain greater market share and differentiate themselves in a very competitive environment.

The conference has a dedicated following and brings folks in the insurance industry together to discuss updates and trends within accounting, technology, finance and operations. But it’s not just the interesting sessions, the tradeshow floor or the round tables that sparked my excitement. There’s a bigger reason why I was so eager to be at this year’s show.

Guidewire chooses Hyland for SolutionConnect

Over the past few months, Hyland has been working on creating a more in-depth partnership with Guidewire®, and the IASA conference seemed like the perfect place to make our announcement: Hyland is the first enterprise content management (ECM) vendor in Guidewire’s SolutionConnect program. The global program is a way for third-party solution providers that work with Guidewire to provide complementary offerings that enhance value for insurers running their operations on the Guidewire InsuranceSuite.

We’ve been a close partner of Guidewire for more than 11 years, working to create an integration between OnBase and Guidewire’s InsuranceSuite that’s so unified, users don’t know they are working in a system separate from Guidewire. Together, we currently have over a dozen mutual customers using Guidewire and OnBase, including Hastings Mutual.

Over the past 15 months we’ve worked to create a more cohesive way to grant full ECM functionality within Guidewire ClaimCenter®. With OnBase, Guidewire customers access a fully functioning ECM solution, while maintaining their presence in the Guidewire product suite. Seamlessly and securely working together, OnBase and Guidewire offer a complete claims process, intelligently linking the claim with all related information and presenting it in a way that is most efficient to users.

The Guidewire SolutionsConnect program is one of the most elite partnership programs in the IT industry. Vendors must possess strong go-to-market abilities with significant successful customer implementations. They must also fill a technology gap for insurers that will significantly enhance the experience of P&C carriers, among other distinguishable attributes.

We’re proud Guidewire chose OnBase and look forward to a great partnership.
