“We selected Guidewire Cloud because it serves our ongoing digital transformation journey,” comments Casey Jordan, VP, IT Application Services, Encova. “By leveraging InsuranceSuite on Guidewire Cloud, we will be able to shift system maintenance to Guidewire, so we can stay current on the latest innovations and decrease our own on-premise technology infrastructure footprint, enabling our IT staff to focus on tasks that deliver value to our agents and policyholders. We will also be able to manage risk by maturing our business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities.”
