The Guidewire PartnerConnect network

The insurance sector specialist

In focusing on the insurance sector, we apply a coherent business and IT model ranging from architecture (business case) to delivery. This also involves providing support with respect to maintenance, release updates and change management.

Deep business expertise and technical knowledge

We have completed over 20 Guidewire projects spanning the entire range of Guidewire services, addressing nine different business lines. Our team includes experts with the highest certifications in each Guidewire suite module.

A global player with a local presence

GFT’s unique consulting strategy means our team members act as partners of equals rather than simple providers. They also go to great lengths to build close ties with clients and Guidewire, which also serves to add value.

Guidewire Innovation Awards

Supported by the Center for Innovation and Performance in Insurance (CIPA), the only specialist unit of its kind in North America, plus the centres of excellence in Italy, Poland, Spain and Costa Rica, GFT’s team of professionals adds value and safeguards quality at every step of the journey, also ensuring that the overall Guidewire implementation process goes as smoothly as possible for our clients.

GFT is well known for its innovative approach to Guidewire implementation. In 2018, GFT acquired V-NEO, which was honoured with a Guidewire Innovation Award in 2013 (for transformation) as well as in 2015 (for change management). In 2019, the digital platform AvivaPlus developed by Aviva Italia with the collaboration of GFT and EY also received a Guidewire Innovation award.
