Wawanesa moves to the cloud to simplify IT operations and add value to brokers and policyholders

4 February 2021


ICMIF member The Wawanesa Mutual Insurance Company (Wawanesa) is to transition from on-premises deployment to Guidewire Cloud, simplifying IT operations and delivering more value to brokers and policyholders

Wawanesa, a mutual insurer based in Canada, and Guidewire Software, Inc. a platform used by P&C insurers to engage, innovate, and grow efficiently, last month announced that Wawanesa has chosen Guidewire Cloud to power its growing digital operations, including its core underwriting, claims, and billing management.

Wawanesa has been using InsuranceSuite and Guidewire Digital since 2010, and originally implemented Guidewire in a self-managed, on-premises mode. Transitioning to Guidewire Cloud will enable Wawanesa to simplify its IT operations, maintain business continuity, leverage analytic insights, and adapt more quickly to changing market demands, all to provide excellent service to its valued brokers and policyholders.

“Our decade-long partnership with Guidewire enabled better, faster, more tailored service for our brokers and policyholders,” said Cam Loeppky, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Wawanesa. “With this move to the cloud, we won’t need to make big capital investments in data centres, and we will accelerate our speed-to-market for rate changes and product updates, positioning us well to meet evolving customer needs.”

“We thank Wawanesa for its partnership and welcome them to the Guidewire Cloud,” said Frank O’Dowd, Chief Sales Officer, Guidewire Software. “We are pleased by the trust being placed in our cloud services capabilities and applaud the company’s mission to maximise value for its policyholders who rely on them to provide excellent service to their brokers and policyholders, and be a positive force in the communities where they operate.”
