The Automobile Club of Southern California, (Los Angeles) a top fifteen private passenger auto insurer and a top thirty property and casualty insurer in the United States, and Guidewire (San Mateo, Calif.) have announced that the Auto Club implemented Guidewire InsuranceSuite on Guidewire Cloud to power its core business, simplify its IT operations, adapt quickly to changing market demands, and deliver more value to its agents and policyholders, according to a statement from the two companies. A Guidewire customer since 2007, Auto Club migrated InsuranceSuite from a self-managed environment to Guidewire Cloud.

“Migrating to Guidewire Cloud presented an opportunity for us to simplify and standardize our InsurTech platforms onto a best-of-breed, cloud-based, always-supported, always-updated, innovation-forward platform,” says Garrett Anderson, VP, Information Systems, Auto Club. “Auto Club is the largest member of the Automobile Association of America (AAA) Federation, offering insurance plans in 22 states. Guidewire Cloud is driving efficiency and enabling us to bring all our states and products onto a common platform. We’re much more nimble and responsive to changes in market needs.”

“Guidewire Cloud has been a stable, well-performing platform.” Adds Mike Costello, enterprise service delivery group manager, Auto Club. “We’ve received positive feedback from our member-facing employees, specifically around the user interface, which offers an improved experience. Also, testing of Guidewire Cloud updates has been much easier and quicker compared to when we were upgrading self-managed versions of Guidewire.”
