Crum & Forster Selects Accenture To Support Technology Modernization

Stocks in this article: ACN

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been selected by Crum & Forster, a leading provider of specialty and standard insurance offerings, to deploy Accenture Duck Creek Policy Administration software. Crum & Forster will use the software as a major component of its rating and policy processing system for commercial lines, specialty lines and workers’ compensation. The new system will enable Crum & Forster to quickly and easily launch and maintain products, and increase operational efficiencies by streamlining policy administration processes.

Crum & Forster will also use Accenture Duck Creek Templates, a pre-configured insurance product deployment solution for Insurance Services Office (ISO) based commercial lines and National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) based workers’ compensation products. Going forward, the templates will enable the rapid implementation and maintenance of these lines of business.

“As our business continues to expand, we need a new system with advanced technology to help us scale up for growth,” said Nicole Bennett, CIO, Crum & Forster. “We selected Accenture Duck Creek software because it will enable us to easily support and configure all of our lines of business on a single platform. Giving our lines of business configuration capabilities will allow us to react faster to market changes with updated products and better service.”

“We are pleased to be working with Crum & Forster and supporting their growth initiatives,” said Michael A. Jackowski, global managing director of Accenture Software for P&C insurance. “The flexibility and rich functionality of our policy administration software suite, including our industry-leading rating solution, will allow them to provide an enhanced user experience for both underwriters and agents.”

Accenture’s award-winning policy and claims software offers carriers an integrated suite of software with modules that can be implemented individually or as part of a broader migration strategy. The combined software enables insurers of all sizes to benefit from a flexible suite of property & casualty (P&C) software to configure products, transact lines of business and process claims.
