Sponsored by Businesswire

Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), provider of the industry platform
P&C insurers rely upon, today announced that Cognizant and PwC have
achieved Guidewire PartnerConnect™ Consulting program
specializations. Cognizant has been awarded the Guidewire BillingCenter™
and Guidewire PolicyCenter™ specializations for North America, and PwC
has received the Guidewire ClaimCenter™, BillingCenter, PolicyCenter,
and InsuranceSuite specializations for North America.

“We congratulate Cognizant and PwC on their recently earned Guidewire
specializations,” said Lisa Walsh, Vice President, Alliances, Guidewire
Software. “This achievement validates their commitment to providing our
mutual customers with high levels of service and expertise.”

Guidewire announced
the addition of product and regional specializations for its
PartnerConnect Consulting program in November 2018. The addition
of specializations allows customers to more easily identify which
partner has expertise in a particular Guidewire product or solution.
Partners can apply for specializations quarterly with the next window
for applications taking place June 1st-30th, 2019.

Specializations are regionally based and require partners to demonstrate
skills, knowledge, and competency in a specific Guidewire product. The
achievement of specializations enables insurers to have more clarity and
insight into which partners have proven capabilities in a region. In
addition, partners with specializations can better promote their
capabilities across Guidewire products and solutions.

“PwC is pleased to have earned Guidewire InsuranceSuite™, PolicyCenter,
BillingCenter, and ClaimCenter specializations for North America,” said
Imran Ilyas, Global Guidewire Competency Leader, PwC. “These
specializations are a testament to the breadth and depth of our
expertise in harnessing Guidewire technology to help insurers transform
their business.”

“Achieving the Guidewire BillingCenter and PolicyCenter specializations
for North America underscores our dedication to driving business value
for our insurance customers through their Guidewire InsurancePlatform™
projects,” said Michael Clifton, Head of Global Insurance Strategy,
Cognizant. “We are looking forward to continuing to help insurers meet
their IT and business imperatives, and securing these specializations is
confirmation of our proven capabilities.”
