Canal Teams Up with Guidewire on Predictive Analytics


Guidewire Predictive Analytics is designed to help commercial transportation insurance providers create smart claim models.

Commercial trucking and specialty transportation insurance provider Canal Insurance Company announced it has chosen Guidewire Software to provide cloud-based predictive analytics solutions. Guidewire provides an industry platform for property and casualty insurers.

Canal will deploy its Guidewire Predictive Analytics for Claims to compliment the Guidewire ClaimCenter it already uses. They also use Guidewire BillingCenter. Predictive Analytics For Claims uses machine learning to provide real-time insights.

“Canal selected Guidewire Predictive Analytics for Claims as its solution based on the capabilities of the machine-learning engine, the ability to deliver real-time predictive insights into our claims workflow, and the expertise of Guidewire Professional Services,” said Christopher Greene, Senior Vice President, Chief Claims Officer & General Counsel, Canal. “Our analytics team can now gather claims data, build, and implement models seamlessly compared to the policy-side models we had built and used in the past. We also look forward to potentially improving our loss ratios by making sure that incoming claims are promptly assigned to the right resources as well as early detection of claims that might escalate into large losses.”
