Maximizing Insurance Profitability:
The Power of Externalizing Rating with Earnix for Guidewire

August 14, 2024 | 11:00 AM ET | 4:00 PM BST

In the rapidly evolving insurance market, staying ahead requires not only keen insight but also the ability to swiftly adapt to changing market demands. This upcoming webinar explores the transformative benefits of externalizing your rating engine, made easier via the Earnix Accelerator for PolicyCenter. Participants will learn how this enhances pricing agility and accuracy, enabling insurers to make quick, data-driven decisions that maximizes profitability.

For insurers leveraging Guidewire PolicyCenter, externalizing rating unlocks a realm of operational efficiency and strategic flexibility. By decoupling rating algorithms and rules from the core policy administration system, insurers gain the agility to enact changes swiftly, without disrupting their foundational operations.

We will discuss the near-immediate value realized from implementing Earnix alongside Guidewire, highlighting case studies where insurance carriers have successfully capitalized on this strategy.

Our discussion will highlight how externalizing rating via the Earnix Accelerator for PolicyCenter empowers insurers to:

  • Seamlessly adapt to macroeconomic changes and regulatory mandates with precision and agility

  • Elevate your analytical sophistication for tailored pricing and responsive offerings

  • Minimize ongoing rating engine maintenance resulting in reduced costs

Join us to understand how this powerful synergy between Earnix and Guidewire not only drives improved profitability but also positions insurance carriers for long-term success in a competitive landscape.
