For the team here at Betterview, partnering with Guidewire was a no-brainer. As a company focused on improving the P&C insurance experience for agents and customers, we found a lot of alignment between Guidewire’s mission and our own. The future of P&C lies in investing in both better technology and a better focus on the customer. Guidewire understands that intuitively and embodies it in their business practices. We couldn’t be prouder to be working alongside them.

David Lyman

CEO, Betterview

We believe that every organization should have the freedom to deploy their chosen payment providers and technologies, wherever they operate, without complex integrations becoming an insurmountable obstacle. Together with Guidewire, we are removing this obstacle and providing insurers integration-free access to the global payments ecosystem.
