Qualitas Insurance Company (QIC, San Diego) and Guidewire Software (San Mateo, Calif.) today announced that Qualitas has selected InsuranceNow and Predictive Analytics to improve customer service and grow its business. Qualitas is a subsidiary of Quálitas Compañía de Seguros, S.A. de C.V. (Mexico City).
“We selected InsuranceNow to modernize our systems and improve the service we provide to our partners and customers,” comments Eduardo Pedrero, CEO, QIC. “Out of all the systems we evaluated, InsuranceNow was the best in meeting our requirements, especially with its value-added capabilities.”
Pedrero describes QIC’s business as centered on using historical experience to adequately price future risks. “Guidewire Predictive Analytics will enable us to incorporate ‘intelligent’ insights into our underwriting process, offering us an important competitive advantage in the trucking insurance market,” he notes.
Formed in 2014, QIC began operations offering the Cross-Border Program for commercial vehicles entering the United States from Mexico, before expanding its business lines to include domestic commercial auto and personal auto. QIC’s parent company, Quálitas Compañía de Seguros was founded in 1993, specializing in auto insurance.

The cloud and all-in-one aspects of InsuranceNow were critical to QIC’s selection, as they will help simplify the IT operations by shifting maintenance and support to Guidewire—allowing internal staff to focus on business objectives that aimed at accelerate our growth, according to Gustavo Guadelupe, CIO, QIC. “With InsuranceNow, we will now have a single source of truth for data management to improve information and process workflows, and we will be able to take advantage of Guidewire’s latest technology and innovation and enhance our business continuity strategy,” he says.
