SECURA Insurance Chooses Duck Creek’s Digital Solutions to Enhance Engagement with Policyholders and Agencies
The super-regional property and casualty carrier to replace multiple front-end systems with one comprehensive platform that will support their commercial lines of business
BOSTON, March 29, 2017 – Duck Creek Technologies today announced that SECURA Insurance Companies will transition its legacy-based front-end distribution systems to Duck Creek’s digital engagement solutions. The mutual insurance company will utilize a platform comprised of AgencyPortal®, Turnstile® and AgencyConnect® to enhance engagement with independent agencies and the customers they serve in the 12 states in which the insurer operates.
“Our focus remains on making it easy for agencies and policyholders to do business with us. Transitioning to one platform to manage our distribution channels and interactions with key stakeholders will help us achieve that objective,” said Todd Thiel, vice president – information technology at SECURA. “As the industry continues to evolve, Duck Creek is providing SECURA with a flexible, scalable portal solution that is capable of supporting our current and future needs.”
