Hubio publishes its first Ready for Guidewire accelerator to help Canadian insurers fulfill regulatory requirements
TORONTO & FOSTER CITY, Calif., November 6, 2017 – Guidewire Software (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of software products to Property and Casualty (P&C) insurers, today announced that Hubio, a provider of technology solutions for P&C insurers, has joined the Guidewire PartnerConnect™ program as a Solution member.
A newly available Hubio regul8 for PolicyCenter Ready for Guidewire accelerator makes it easier for an insurance company using Guidewire PolicyCenter® to avoid the costs, time and challenges involved with building a custom solution to meet the data filing requirements of Canadian regulators. The regul8 accelerator helps to ensure accurate and complete data is provided for all regulatory reporting. Data from policy transactions is extracted from Guidewire PolicyCenter® and when combined with Hubio’s regul8 is automatically formatted to meet regulatory requirements.
“Regulatory reporting is important in any new core system replacement, and is often a complex, time-consuming process,” said Phil Henville, CEO with Hubio Exchange. “The addition of the regul8 for PolicyCenter accelerator to the Guidewire Marketplace will benefit our mutual customers, making a pre-built solution available to ensure regulatory requirements are addressed cost-effectively, reliably and accurately.”
Hubio’s regul8 for PolicyCenter Ready for Guidewire accelerator supports insurers by:
Automating the extraction of full policy lifecycle data from PolicyCenter and formatting it to meet regulatory requirements;
Ensuring data is accurate and complete and improving submission quality; and
Allowing business users to oversee regulatory submissions.
This first integration accelerator from Hubio has successfully completed the Ready for Guidewire validation process and is eligible to use the Ready for Guidewire mark. This mark designates that the accelerator has been through a rigorous review process that supports readiness for integration with Guidewire InsuranceSuite™ products.
