It’s nice to have a way to follow a customer through the process. Quitting, binding, underwriting, billing.

Cons
You think it’s in one place, but it’s really in another. And then when you think you’ve figured it out, you are lost all over again.

The problem comes with bugs, the IDE provide a really bad experience for debugging making really hard to solve things.

I don't know what company was contracted to do the installation but they're also to blame. Case study of what can go wrong.

Effective, Exhaustive & Easy to Use

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

Guidewire offers end to end features in terms of process(es) and capabilities 1 could think of in Insurance Value Chain. The features are apt for US market and can adapt to other geographies with customization. The documentation & Courses available are self-sufficient for someone to pick up the software with minimal effort & time. The long list of partners & vendors readily integrated with their system enhancing the features further.

Cons

Limited availability of open source information on Guidewire, not much can be found over web. One has to channel themselves through any of their partner to get details.

The must have for Insurance industry

Reviewed 3 years ago

I work in a team that implement the solution for a big insurance company. At the first, it is fast to understand how to customize simple things and having new features on no time in production. The problem comes with bugs, the IDE provide a really bad experience for debugging making really hard to solve things.

Pros

It comes with everything you need for your insurance company. It has the products, business logic, visuals, modularization, quality, safety, covers all fronts of an insurance business. It is stable, reliable, friendly and all ready to use from the starting point. It provides a perfect customer-focused solution without any customization and in a state of the art system.

Cons

As with any black box solution, it is sometimes very difficult for developers to customize it, especially complex rules and design. The views are very difficult to change, even changing the color of a button is a long way, since the html and the css are not easily accessible. It's really hard to debug, IDE is too slow for that and half of the time it can't follow the runtime and can't see any variable value. You need almost a gaming computer to run the server locally, the requirements are not reasonable
