Blackcomb Consultants is now part of Accenture
I am excited to welcome Blackcomb Consultants, a leading independent Guidewire partner in North America, into the Accenture family.
Why Blackcomb Consultants?
Amid market disruption and heightened consumer expectations, insurers are turning to platforms such as Guidewire 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 sustained competitive advantage
I have previously spoken about how Guidewire is helping insurers 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 reimagine their operations in the cloud.
We thoroughly examined the marketplace and Blackcomb’s reputation among its clients was unmatched. Joining forces really brings our total reinvention story to life 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 administration system implementations and upgrades, production support, cloud-hosted services, performance improvement and organizational-change services. They also have specialized capabilities in delivering 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 insurers globally to help them become “cloud-first” businesses. Its 158 employees, including North American on-shore personnel, will join our Industry & Function Platforms Group, where they will be focused on Guidewire project delivery. This investment by Accenture will allow our clients to have the resources necessary to implement Guidewire solutions to meet their needs, and the combined companies bring scale to allow carriers to realize their total enterprise reinvention journey.
