Guidewire Software Inc., a provider of software products to property and casualty insurers, has announced that Enterprise Rent-A-Car has joined Guidewire PartnerConnect as a solution partner.

Enterprise has also joined in the Ready for Guidewire accelerator validation program.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s Automated Rental Management System (ARMS) Web Application accelerator makes it easier for an insurance company using Guidewire ClaimCenter to integrate with ARMS, according to the company. The ARMS accelerator provides insurers access to over 13 rental solutions, from reservations to rental management and invoicing.

From within ClaimCenter, insurers are connected to real-time repair information — with electronic data and repair status updates that flow directly from repair facility partners using the ARMS Automotive products.

“Enterprise is dedicated to streamlining the rental process between insurance companies, collision centers, and our car rental offices, helping insurers save on loss adjustment expenses,” said Mary Mahoney, vice president, insurance replacement division for Enterprise. “Making our solutions Guidewire-ready will enable insurers to focus on the evolving needs of their business and allow for greater flexibility and efficiency in rental management for improved customer service.”

“We are pleased to welcome Enterprise to the Guidewire PartnerConnect program as a Solution partner,” said Neil Betteridge, vice president, Strategy, Guidewire Software. “We have worked with Enterprise for a number of years and are excited to expand our relationship with them. This comprehensive accelerator will make it easier and quicker for our mutual clients to integrate ClaimCenter with multiple Enterprise rental solutions, improving claims handling efficiency and enhancing policyholder customer experience.”
