The vendor now offers more than 90 accelerators, available for customers to download at no charge, which have been validated by Guidewire to complement and extend the firm’s InsurancePlatform products.
“The momentum growing our partner ecosystem, including the Marketplace, demonstrates our commitment to helping our customers embrace innovation and achieve TCO reduction,” says Neil Betteridge, VP, Strategy, Guidewire Software. “Our Ready for Guidewire program is a key differentiator for us, and we are proud to have so many strong solutionpartnerships backed by substantive solution integrations.”

The program is accelerating with a newly validated solution integration being published on an average of every nine business days.
