MALMÖ, Sweden & SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Upptec, a provider of automated claim solutions for all content within home as well as travel insurance, and Guidewire PartnerConnect Solution partner, and Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), the platform P&C insurers trust to engage, innovate, and grow efficiently, today announced that Upptec’s new Ready for Guidewire validated add-on is now available to ClaimCenter users in the Guidewire Marketplace.
Upptec Valuation for adjusters enables automated valuation for damaged goods in a claim. ClaimCenter users can now provide unbiased, quick, and transparent settlements to claimants, improving claimant experience and reducing claim costs. With this technology, adjusters can search Upptec’s product database to find and instantly assess the value of a claimant’s damaged item, determined using prices from local retailers. Using the insurer’s policies and depreciation rules, it automatically calculates the overall compensation for the claimant, reducing compensation variation. Upptec’s integration allows users to seamlessly access this technology through ClaimCenter, reducing cycle time and adjuster manual labor.
With Upptec’s ClaimCenter add-on, insurers can:
- Seamlessly utilize Upptec’s valuation technology directly within ClaimCenter;
- Instantly access automatic valuation for damaged items based on the specific local market;
- Quickly create a summary of the claim, including the resulting compensation using policies specific to the insurer with fraud prevention possibilities;
- Easily redo valuation using pricing from a different store if necessary.
