PARIS and BOSTON – November 2, 2021 – Shift Technology, a provider of AI-driven decision automation and optimization solutions for the global insurance industry, today announced that Guidewire (NYSE: GWRE), has made an investment extending the company’s recent Series D funding event. This strategic investment is intended to support ongoing technology innovation and go-to-market acceleration.
“Shift is well known in the industry for its leadership in fraud detection and its innovative use of artificial intelligence to help insurance professionals make the best possible decisions across the underwriting and claims processes,” said Mike Chen, vice president, Corporate Development and Ventures, Guidewire. “By investing in Shift, we are helping to fuel that innovation engine to the benefit of our joint customers and the insurance industry in general.”
Shift officially joined the Guidewire PartnerConnect program as a Solution partner in 2019 and in early 2020 published the Shift Claims Fraud Detection Add-on for ClaimCenter in the Guidewire Marketplace.
