Stuttgart, 20 December 2021 — GFT has achieved the Guidewire PartnerConnect Cloud EMEA specialisation. GFT is a Guidewire PartnerConnect Consulting partner at the Advantage level and already has 13 specialisations including seven in the EMEA region: BillingCenter, ClaimCenter, PolicyCenter, InsuranceSuite, InsuranceSuite Integration, Cloud EMEA, and Digital.
Specialisations are regionally based and require partners to demonstrate skills, knowledge, and competency in a particular Guidewire product or solution area. The achievement of specialisations enables insurers to have more clarity and insight into which partners have proven capabilities in a region. In addition, partners with specialisations can better promote their capabilities across Guidewire products and solutions.
“In the years to come, the ability to use the Guidewire Cloud Platform fast and wisely to bring to life products and services will be a key differentiator among insurers. This new specialisation is a recognition of our commitment to making sure our clients get the optimum return on their investment in the Guidewire Cloud Platform,” said Jens-Thorsten Rauer, GFT’s group chief executive – Central & Western Europe. “At GFT, we have extensive experience in helping clients embrace the new mindset of cloud, including the deployment of one of the largest EMEA implementations of the Guidewire InsuranceSuite on the Cloud.”
Jerome Isabelle, vice-president Insurance Strategy & Guidewire Expertise added, “This new specialisation demonstrates our robust insurance expertise in delivering Guidewire transformation programmes and enabling new client success on the Guidewire Cloud Platform, globally.”
“We congratulate GFT on achieving the Cloud EMEA specialisation. We are pleased to recognise their expertise and proven capabilities and look forward to continuing our work together to contribute to the success of our mutual customers,” said Molly Black, senior director, Partner Programs and Enablement, Guidewire Software.
GFT provides Guidewire services across the Americas and Europe, in seven different languages and leveraging seven dedicated Centres of Excellence and Delivery. The Cloud EMEA specialisation is the eighth Guidewire PartnerConnect specialisation that GFT has achieved in 2021.
