Duck Creek’s Software Integrates Efficiently and Offers Headless Configuration for Total UX Freedom

BOSTON, October 18, 2017 – Duck Creek Technologies today announced that Pioneer State Mutual Insurance (Pioneer State Mutual), a Michigan P&C insurance carrier, has selected Duck Creek Policy to replace its legacy policy system. Duck Creek Policy was chosen due to its ease of integration; it will replace a sunsetted policy product, integrating seamlessly into the insurer’s existing user interface thanks to a headless configuration.

Once implemented, Duck Creek’s customer-centric policy system will allow Pioneer State Mutual to manage its entire customer lifecycle with a seamless back end experience. The company plans to employ an on-premises install of Duck Creek Policy, which can easily be married to Pioneer State Mutual’s existing front-end system. Duck Creek’s headless UI capabilities enable carriers of all sizes to utilize or improve their own unique customer experiences while enabling rapid, efficient, and affordable product transitions. Duck Creek Policy will provide a broad and flexible solution that reduces maintenance cost and can support future innovations and digital transformations.

Duck Creek fully appreciates our core value of focusing on the surrounding community, and will work quickly and efficiently to replace our outdated policy system,” said Tony Paris, Vice President and CIO of Pioneer State Mutual Insurance. “The integration of Duck Creek’s technology is strategic because it allows our customers to maintain the user interface they are comfortable with while enhancing back-end performance with a headless and efficient configuration.”
