Fenris Joins Guidewire PartnerConnect: New Marketplace App Helps Insurers Optimize Application Process
RICHMOND, Va., and SAN MATEO, Calif., March 17, 2022 – Guidewire (NYSE: GWRE) announced that Fenris Digital (Fenris) has joined Guidewire PartnerConnect as a Solution partner, and the new Fenris Ready for Guidewire validated accelerator for PolicyCenter is now available in the Guidewire Marketplace.
Data and analytics are helping to transform property and casualty (P&C) insurance underwriting, enhancing efficiency, and improving the customer experience, reported McKinsey & Company. When integrated with PolicyCenter, Fenris’ data sourcing app enables insurers to leverage third-party property, environment, vehicle, financial, legal, cyber, and social data sources.
An insurer can utilize Fenris’ API to combine or repurpose data to instantly score leads and triage submissions on contactability, lifetime value, propensity to buy, presence of fraud, personal financial responsibility, and upsell opportunities. Through the use of alternative data and machine learning (ML), the app delivers insights and enrichment to insurers seeking to understand which leads may become the best customers, and to streamline new business onboarding with pre-fill. The accelerator allows insurers to quickly apply quantified insights early in the process when reviewing applications to improve prioritization and processing.
Fenris’ accelerator leverages repositories of more than 255 million people, 130 million households, 30 million small businesses, and all properties in the U.S., and additionally provides hazard data related to environmental risks and replacement value. Underwriters reviewing small business, home, renters, auto, and other applications can more quickly make accurate risk assessments and bind new applications.
With Fenris’ accelerator, insurers can:
- Provide all necessary data elements to complete an application;
- Gain instant credit insights about applicants; and
- Identify customer life events to determine retention and upsell opportunities.
“With the Fenris accelerator insurers can leverage actionable data insights to expedite the policy review process and respond quickly to applicants within their PolicyCenter workflows,” said Jennifer Linton, founder and CEO of Fenris. “This enables them to increase conversion rates and more rapidly close new business while writing the best risks possible through more accurate risk assessments.”
“We welcome Fenris as our latest Guidewire PartnerConnect Solution partner and congratulate the company on the release of its insurance data sourcing accelerator,” said Becky Mattick, vice president, Global Solution Alliances. “Leveraging the power of data, analytics, and machine learning enhances the policy application process and customer experience.”
