FOSTER CITY, Calif. -- June 14, 2013

Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of software products to
Property/Casualty (P/C) insurers, today announced that Guidewire ClaimCenter®,
its market leading claims management system, won a 2013 RAVE Award.

The RAVE Awards, presented by Tech Decisions magazine and industry research
and advisory firm Novarica, are designed to recognize outstanding software and
IT service providers based on user responses to a survey using Novarica's
Average Customer Experience (ACE) ranking methodology. Insurance executives
are asked to rate their vendor and their respective solutions in five areas:
staff, organization, functionality, technology, and overall satisfaction. This
is the sixth consecutive year that ClaimCenter has received recognition from
Tech Decisions magazine.

This year the RAVE Awards are recognizing software solutions across all
categories that receive overall scores of 94 or above out of 100. More
information about the RAVE Awards 2013 can be found at www.guidewire.com.

"The RAVE Awards were designed to recognize those solutions that are
delivering exemplary value to their customers as measured by those customers
themselves," says Matthew Josefowicz, a managing director at Novarica.

"We are thrilled to congratulate Guidewire Software on their RAVE Award
recognition," said James Daggett, publisher, Tech Decisions. "The awards
provide extremely valuable information for insurance technology decision
makers as the ACE ranking methodology reflects verified customer responses.
Congratulations to Guidewire on demonstrating superior value to their
customers."

“The Guidewire team is honored to receive a RAVE Award for ClaimCenter,” said
Brian Desmond, vice president, Marketing, Guidewire Software. “We are deeply
committed to helping our customers succeed – to successfully replace their
legacy systems and to realize their goals – and are especially pleased with
this recognition as it is based on customer feedback. Thank you to everyone
who participated in the ACE Ranking Survey and to Tech Decisions and Novarica
for sponsoring the RAVE Awards.”
