US-based insurance company CNA has selected Guidewire’s cloud-based software to enhance claims and underwriting operations at its commercial and speciality lines.

CNA initially implemented ClaimCenter and PolicyCenter as self-managed installations.

Now the insurance company plans to migrate these Guidewire products to Guidewire Cloud for its commercial lines of business.

It also plans to extend the products’ use to its lawyers’ liability and speciality business lines.

The migrations are expected to help CNA power its claims, policy administration and underwriting businesses.

It will also help the company in simplifying its IT operations and adapt to changing market demands, the tech vendor claims.
