BOSTON — April 19, 2021 — Duck Creek Technologies (Nasdaq: DCT) announced today that it has expanded its Partner Ecosystem program through a new relationship with CARFAX, owner of the world’s largest vehicle history database and provider of crucial vehicle history data to 23 of the top 25 largest auto insurers. The company’s predictive information is now integrated with the Duck Creek Platform, helping insurance carriers attract and retain the best customers while avoiding losses.
“CARFAX data helps insurers measure road exposure and avoid losses with predictive information,” said Dan Hill, National Sales Director in the CARFAX Banking & Insurance Group. “Duck Creek’s customers need the most accurate information possible to make informed underwriting decisions. Our studies show that using registration type and length of ownership in rating can produce a 7-point lower loss ratio, and we look forward to working with Duck Creek to help insurers reduce risk with better data.”
CARFAX data is beneficial for commercial auto as well as personal auto coverage, and all of it undergoes rigorous quality assurance testing to improve accuracy and eliminate duplicate or irrelevant records. Duck Creek customers now have access to CARFAX data through an Anywhere Enabled Integration available on Duck Creek’s Content Exchange. Plus, CARFAX has a team of experienced actuaries ready to assist with data evaluation and implementation at no charge.
