Independent report analysing technology trends evaluates Duck Creek Technologies based on completeness of vision and ability to execute
London, UK, 4 December, 2018 – Duck Creek Technologies Europe (DCTE) is delighted to announce that its parent company, Duck Creek Technologies, has been positioned as a Leader in the 2018 Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Non-life Insurance Platforms, Europe”.
Headquartered in Boston, USA, Duck Creek Technologies is historically a North American technology expert, but accelerated its expansion in the EMEA market with the launch of a London, UK, office in 2017.
This independent Gartner report – which analysed European technology providers based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute – identified Duck Creek Technologies among vendors that have experienced implementations in Europe.
We believe scale, breadth, and innovation are Duck Creek Platform’s key advantages. Recently, Duck Creek sales velocity in the EMEA markets has continued to grow.
Bart Patrick, Duck Creek Technologies Europe Managing Director, said:
“To us, this independent recognition from Gartner is very pleasing. Duck Creek has deployments in production across the globe, including multi-country installations covering writing business in multiple currencies at policy and risk level and settling claims in multiple currencies.”
“We are very proud of this,” Patrick continued. “We are actively investing in growing our European resource base, working with our clients to ensure that they have appropriate resourcing and governance in their implementation projects to drive their success.
We will continue to grow – we’ve closed two significant new European deals in the last six months and believe this is early evidence of a successful change in approach to sales in the territory, whereby we focus on professional software sales, away from our consultancy-based approach of the past.
Our resourcing model for provisioning of training, support, and maintenance is the same for Europe as it is across all geographies, and we have resources and facilities dedicated to these functions for the region in our London and Barcelona locations. In particular, we have centres in Spain and a new facility in the U.K. where we host training of customers, partners, and our own employees.”
Duck Creek Technologies was recognised as a Leader in Non-life Insurance Platforms, Europe, by the research and advisory firm Gartner.
The Duck Creek Platform is the technical foundation of solutions for policy administration, rating, billing, claims, data insights, and digital engagement. These configurable tools are designed to work independently – or as part of a combined approach – to manage all aspects of the P&C insurance lifecycle. The entire Duck Creek Suite can be deployed via Duck Creek OnDemand, the provider’s SaaS solution for the P&C insurance industry.
