Tryg for creating “Follow My Claim,” a claims communication solution that lets the company communicate with its customers securely, increasing customer satisfaction and efficiency in the claims process.
Tryg is dedicated to being a leader in claims handling and leveraging technology to achieve this goal.

In the fall of 2021, Westfield entered the specialty insurance market as Westfield Specialty, transforming the U.S.-based property and casualty company into a global insurer. Historically, the team had relied on basic, disconnected tools to support underwriting, policy processing, and document management needs. Processes were manual and labor-intensive to complete. With a very ambitious growth target for specialty lines over five years, the team recognized the need for a platform with an integrated, seamless user experience that addressed speed-to-market and enabled the organization’s future.
The Westfield Specialty enablement program focused on building operations and processes from the ground up. IT was tasked with innovating and optimizing processes to allow them to take advantage of rapidly changing market conditions. In addition to leveraging Guidewire technology, Westfield Specialty built an end-to-end, state-of-the-art, custom-built account, submission, clearance, and forms management system to boost efficiency.
