Key Insurance Company Selects Accenture To Help Drive Product Development And Expansion

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) announced that Key Insurance Company has selected Accenture Duck Creek Rating property and casualty (P&C) policy software to support their product development and expansion initiatives. The insurer offers personal automobile coverage in Kansas, Oklahoma, Nevada, Arizona, and Alabama and will use Accenture Duck Creek as its core rating system.

Key Insurance will also use the Accenture Duck Creek Express platform to support web-based quoting for their expanding agency network. Express is Accenture Software’s user interface configuration tool that enables companies to easily deploy multiple, tailored user experiences. Rating, product definition, and the user experience are all managed with a common toolset – a single point of change. This capability gives Key Insurance greater product development flexibility and helps accelerate the product implementation process as they move to write in additional states.

“Our focus is on providing the best service to both our customers and agents,” said Ed Sitz, IT Manager, Key Insurance. “We had two priorities in our software selection – making product development and maintenance easier and giving agents faster and more direct access to those products. Our extensive vendor evaluation process made it clear that no other product in the market could deliver these benefits as well as Accenture Software.”

“We’re pleased that our software was selected by Key Insurance to help support their product development and geographic expansion goals,” said Michael A. Jackowski, global managing director of Accenture Software for P&C Insurance. “With its high velocity rating and rules engine, Accenture Duck Creek Rating can help insurers move quickly into new markets by providing outstanding support to both internal and external users.”
