Insurance Nexus™, the EY complete strategic offering for cloud-based modernization of core insurance technology, powered by Guidewire Software, will be extended with specific accelerators to support the London Market.

The EY Insurance Nexus™ London Market release will enable a simpler go to market solution for carriers operating in the London Market. The core insurance solution built on Guidewire InsuranceSuite will be further extended with pre-configured Commercial lines of business, full London Market messaging support, support for ECF Writeback messages, and pre-configured integrations and business services (document management, security, finance, geocoding, and more) as key accelerators.

Alongside Guidewire’s industry-leading technology, EY Insurance Nexus™ enables P&C carriers to efficiently and effectively migrate core insurance operations to the cloud providing a cost-effective support model for ongoing maintenance and upgrades, which can be delivered outside a carrier’s IT environment.

The cloud-based transformation model, reduces the overall delivery risks and increases the return on investment, helping insurers to realize the benefits of:

  • Faster speed to market through rapid implementation cycles, as well as launch of new products much faster than when using traditional approaches.
  • Reduced burden on business and IT resources: outsource ongoing maintenance and support.
  • Lower total cost of ownership: EY Insurance Nexus™ total cost of ownership for the London Market is more than 50% cheaper than a traditional on-premise implementation. Those savings result from highly conformant solutions (up to 90%), pre-configuration, virtualized infrastructure, and more cost-effective upgrades and maintenance.
  • Increased access for small and midsize carriers to advanced technology: leveraging platforms typically available only to large carriers, and gain access to advanced insurance products based upon Guidewire and other leading technologies.
  • Stronger digital and analytical capabilities built into the solution: can enhance customer experience via mobile apps and portals.
