Wildfire-focused insurance provider to leverage core operations in the cloud
Delos Insurance Solutions (Delos), a technology-powered insurance provider, and Guidewire (NYSE: GWRE) announced that Delos selected InsuranceNow to increase agent digital engagement for business growth. The company plans to implement InsuranceNow to its homeowners line of business in the state of California. Guidewire PartnerConnect Consulting member Exavalu will be leading the implementation project.
Delos is a managing general agent (MGA) focused on providing property insurance in catastrophe-affected areas. The insurance industry has been adept at being on the early edge of understanding how climate change is making catastrophes more disruptive. While many insurance companies have pulled out of communities at risk of wildfire, Delos’ founders recognized a market opportunity in leveraging their backgrounds in technology and data science to develop wildfire models and write insurance for the millions of low-risk homes that the insurance industry miscategorizes as high risk. The company is transforming their previously manual process to a digitalized technology platform through InsuranceNow.
“We selected InsuranceNow for its reliability and consistency to transform the interactions our agents have in working with us. As an early-stage startup, we have an opportunity to succeed quickly and don’t want to introduce any unnecessary risk into the company. Out of all the systems we evaluated, InsuranceNow was the best in meeting our requirements,” said Delos Founder and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Stein. “Guidewire is a recognized industry software platform. InsuranceNow will help increase efficiency and speed-to-market for our agents. By leveraging InsuranceNow on Guidewire Cloud, we will be able to take advantage of Guidewire’s latest technology and innovation, devoting less time to system maintenance.”
Exavalu President Saurav Basu said, “We’re honored to have been selected by Delos to implement InsuranceNow to innovate and rapidly scale the business. We look forward to the partnership with Delos and Guidewire to deliver success on this initiative.”
“We admire Delos for their eagerness in solving for one of the most rapidly changing risk areas in the industry,” said Guidewire General Manager of Claims & InsuranceNow Zachary Gustafson. “We are honored that Delos has selected InsuranceNow as their core technology platform as they seek to make catastrophic wildfire risk better understood and more insurable.”
