Blackcomb Consultants is now part of Accenture
I am pleased to welcome Blackcomb Consultants, a leading independent Guidewire partner in North America, to the Accenture family.
Why Blackcomb Consultants?
In the midst of market disturbances and increased consumer expectations, insurance companies are turning to platforms such as Guide wire to drive strategic digital and business transformation. Accenture and Blackcomb Consultants share a vision focused on delivering innovation to P&C carriers of all sizes, helping them create a sustainable competitive advantage
I̵7;ve talked before about how Guidewire is helping insurance companies transform. Guidewire’s end-to-end technology platform combines digital, core analytics and artificial intelligence capabilities across the underwriting, billing, claims and customer relationship management functions, helping property and casualty insurers transform their operations in the cloud.
We researched the market thoroughly and Blackcomb’s reputation among its customers was second to none. Joining forces truly brings to life our total reinvention story by adding a company to our repertoire with deep expertise in Guidewire, the market-leading platform in the industry. As a Guidewire “Advantage” partner, Blackcomb Consultants’ offerings include policy management system implementations and upgrades, production support, cloud-based services, performance improvement and organizational change services. They also have specialized capabilities to deliver Guidewire applications and services on Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
What this means for Accenture and Guidewire
With Blackcomb’s deep technical expertise and excellent reputation, this partnership enhances Accenture’s ability to deliver Guidewire solutions to insurance companies globally to help them become “cloud-first” businesses. Its 158 employees, including North American onshore staff, will join our Industry & Function Platforms Group, where they will focus on the delivery of Guidewire projects. This investment from Accenture will enable our customers to have the resources necessary to implement Guidewire solutions to meet their needs, and the combined companies will bring scale to enable carriers to realize their total reinvention journey.
