GRINNELL, Iowa, & FOSTER CITY, Calif.--()--Grinnell Mutual, a century-old property and casualty insurer and reinsurer, and Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE:GWRE), the provider of the industry platform Property and Casualty (P&C) insurers rely upon, today announced that Grinnell Mutual will leverage Guidewire InsurancePlatform™, delivered as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution via Guidewire Cloud™.

Grinnell Mutual originally selected InsurancePlatform to transform how it does business and enhance its commitment to serving its policyholders, agents, and mutual members. The company is currently migrating the platform to Guidewire Cloud across all lines of business, beginning in Pennsylvania.
