20 August 2008

Duck Creek Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of software and service solutions for the insurance industry, today announced that United America Indemnity Group, Inc. (“United America”) has selected Duck Creek’s Policy Administration Commercial ISO Lines Solution.

Key to United America’s selection of the Duck Creek solution was the availability of Duck Creek’s pre-built ISO products (templates) coupled with the solutions’ flexible and configurable tool-based platform. This Duck Creek offering includes a full inventory of rates, rules and over 20,000+ forms. United America will also utilize Duck Creek’s standard support to ensure the seamless integration of the new ISO monthly circulars. United America will utilize Duck Creek’s solution for Commercial Package Policies (CPP), which includes Commercial Auto, Commercial Property, Crime, Inland Marine, and General Liability.

United America’s Chief Information/Administrative Officer, Ed Rafter, commented, “After an extensive market search to evaluate software solutions, the decision to select the Duck Creek solution was based on their ISO lines support, system performance/scalability, breadth of functionality and the flexibility of the system. With the Duck Creek configuration tools, we will easily be able to support a strong portfolio of new products, while taking advantage of the wealth of policy administration functionality and meeting our aggressive performance requirements. Lastly, Duck Creek’s Professional Services Organization is not only rich in technology knowledge, but also in insurance industry practices which was another added benefit in our selection. We are looking forward to a long and highly successful relationship.”

“With United America taking a keen focus on the entire cost of rolling out and supporting a Policy Administration system for years to come, we are a great fit. Our prebuilt ISO lines templates will enable United America to get up and running quickly in a cost effective manner. Couple this with our proven ISO subscription service, which provides for regular/monthly circular updates, including all modifications to rates, rules and forms across all states. Having Duck Creek maintain all the modifications allows the carrier to truly focus on their core competence of driving premium growth. Today’s announcement demonstrates that we continue to gain momentum in the Policy Administration market as more carriers look for the benefits of a next-generation solution,” said Curtis Gekle, EVP for Sales and Marketing at Duck Creek.
