FCCI Insurance Group (Sarasota, Fla.) has modernized claims operations through a cloud migration with partners Guidewire (San Mateo, Calif.) and Cognizant (Teaneck, N.J.). The firms helped the regional property/casualty insurer to reduce claims processing times and costs and allow agents to focus on improving their customer experiences. Cognizant led the project with FCCI to migrate Guidewire ClaimCenter on Guidewire Cloud, empowering the insurer to manage claims more efficiently across its commercial and surety lines of business, according to a joint statement from the companies.
