San Mateo, Calif. – While the industry has traditionally viewed billing as a back-office function, Guidewire’s newest version of its BillingCenter product takes advantage of the J3EE standard to enable insurers to move billing front and center, the company reports. 

Guidewire Software Inc., a San Mateo, Calif., provider of solutions for property and casualty and workers’ compensation insurers, announced Guidewire BillingCenter 2.0, a comprehensive billing system for all lines of property/casualty insurance.
Available for immediate delivery, BillingCenter is currently in production and also is being implemented at six additional Guidewire client sites.

Guidewire BillingCenter 2.0 provides property/casualty insurers of all sizes with a modern, flexible system for managing the end-to-end billing process. BillingCenter manages both agency and direct bill plans, and accommodates the unique requirements of all lines of business—providing a high degree of versatility for an insurer. The system is developed in Java for the J2EE standard. BillingCenter shares a common platform with Guidewire’s ClaimCenter and PolicyCenter systems, and can be implemented as part of the Guidewire solution suite or easily integrated into an insurer’s existing environment or with other new applications.

BillingCenter 2.0 offers:
•    Direct and agency billing management in one system for all lines of business
•    Complete billing lifecycle automation
•    Dashboard views of real-time customer billing information
•    Agent visibility into commission plans and payments
•    Automated controls to reduce uncollected earned premium
•    Flexible support for all payment methods and cycles.

BillingCenter translates into true business value through improved customer retention, enhanced policyholder relationships and reduced operational costs, claims Guidewire.

“The one communication that every policyholder pays attention to from their insurance company is their bill,” says George Grieve, CEO, CastleBay Consulting, Austin, Texas. “Insurers are recognizing the importance of doing billing right. Guidewire BillingCenter provides not only a viable solution to their challenges, but a vehicle to transform and really revolutionize their billing operations. It provides unprecedented flexibility that allows the insurer to design billing processes that meet their needs.”
