Guidewire Software Announces Athenium, Inc. as a New Solution Partner

Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of software products to Property and Casualty (P&C) insurers, today announced that Athenium, Inc., a provider of insurance QA audit solutions for claims and underwriting, has joined the Guidewire PartnerConnect™ program as a Solution partner. In addition, Athenium’s integration to ClaimCenter®, built for its teamthink solution, has successfully completed the Ready for Guidewire accelerator validation process.

An end-to-end solution for QA reviews, teamthink optimizes the claims and underwriting QA review processes to deliver valuable organizational insights. With this accelerator, access to the Claims QA function performed in teamthink is directly available from Guidewire ClaimCenter. In addition, ClaimCenter data is available within teamthink to complete parts of the review, accelerating reviews.

“Athenium’s teamthink® ensures greater organizational insights and a more streamlined QA review process for insurers,” said Joe Kislo, President and CEO, Athenium. “With our Guidewire partnership and our validated Ready for Guidewire accelerator, the integration between ClaimCenter and teamthink will make it even easier for our clients to promote claims quality improvement.”

Athenium’s Ready for Guidewire accelerator supports insurers by enabling time saving pre-integrated connectivity to teamthink for the following capabilities:

  • Makes Guidewire ClaimCenter data available in teamthink for use in selecting and assigning files for QA review, prefilling responses for reviewers and providing a richer set of data for analytics;
  • Shows teamthink QA review assignments and action items in ClaimCenter; and
  • Provides access to teamthink through ClaimCenter without needing to log in to teamthink separately.

Athenium is now eligible to use the Ready for Guidewire validation mark. This designates that the teamthink accelerator has been through a rigorous review process that supports readiness for integration with Guidewire InsuranceSuite™ products.

“Athenium’s teamthink accelerator for ClaimCenter makes it easier for claims organizations to measure and improve the quality of their operations,” said Becky Mattick, Senior Director, Solution Alliances, Guidewire. “We are pleased to welcome Athenium as a PartnerConnect Solution partner who shares our commitment to helping insurers adapt and succeed.”
