Qualified Pearl real estate firm customers now able to purchase E&O insurance via the web

Duck Creek Technologies, Inc., a provider of policy administration solutions for the insurance industry, today announced that Pearl Insurance, an Illinois-based marketer, broker, and administrator, has purchased and implemented Duck Creek’s EXAMPLE Platform® to support its Real Estate Errors and Omissions (E&O) Insurance program.

Pearl launched its new Duck Creek system in June and is pleased to be able to offer small real estate firms a fully automated process for their E&O insurance. With the Duck Creek solution, Pearl’s qualified real estate customers are able to submit an E&O application, obtain a quote, and purchase coverage – all via the web; resulting in a highly cost-effective new business process.

Pearl plans to continue to expand its use of the Duck Creek solution by taking advantage of the system’s policy administration capabilities; including cancellations, reinstatements, out of sequence endorsements, and renewals.
