GUIDEWIRE SOFTWARE HAS announced it is establishing a new consulting centre in Dublin, with the creation of at least 10 new jobs.
The software developer, which already employs 25 people at the centre, provides the operational systems that insurance companies need to keep their businesses running. These include applications that support insurers core operations such as underwriting and claims management, as well as more basic services such as designing company websites.
“Every insurance provider has unique business requirements and technical infrastructure – we configure our core InsuranceSuite products to meet those requirements and fit into the clients overall technical infrastructuret,” Ireland manager Niall Lalor told TheJournal.ie. He said the company provided services to over 100 insurance companies and had projects in New Zealand, Australia, Europe and the US.
Before the consulting centre we had to send a team of consultants to each site for 6-18 months at a time to get projects done. Now we can do all that here from here.
The IDA has supported the establishment of the centre, which is based in Blanchardstown, Dublin.
“Guidewire is a dynamic and fast-growing software company, and today’s announcement that it is locating a consulting centre in Dublin with the creation of additional jobs is good news,” commented the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton.
