Insurer’s Portuguese unit moves to offer customers world-class service as part of ongoing aggressive digital transformation
London – 18 June, 2020 – Duck Creek Technologies announced today that one of the Portuguese business units of Ageas Portugal Group (Ageas Seguros)has gone live with Duck Creek Policy, Billing, and Data Hub (a component of Duck Creek Insights) as it moves forward with its digital transformation to streamline operations and offer superior service to customers in the region. The swift deployment was aided by Duck Creek Delivery Assurance carrying out a number of Product Conformance Reviews throughout the lifecycle of the project in order to ensure that delivery best practices were strictly adhered to. These engagements included a combination of onsite visits and remote calls designed to deliver a positive outcome in the shortest timeframe possible.
As Ageas Portugal Group pushes forward in Portugal with an aggressive digital agenda, the implementation of Duck Creek’s Policy, Billing, and Data Hub solutions lets the insurer make better, faster decisions and support customers in the ways they prefer. Replacing multiple legacy systems with best-in-class solutions, the insurer will be able to reduce operating costs and increase internal process efficiencies, freeing up its IT staff to focus on the company’s strong digital-first strategy.
“As we plan our business strategy for the future, it’s critical that we deploy systems and solutions that can evolve with our organization and processes rather than constrain us to outdated operating models,” said Marisa Castro, Ageas Portugal Group Transformation Program Director. “With our Duck Creek solutions, we’ll not only be able to offer customers better service, but the upgradable platform will also allow us to keep pace with the changing marketplace in our region.”
Duck Creek Policy. is a powerful and flexible solution that enables insurers to service the complete policy lifecycle and define and develop new products across a wide range of lines of business. Duck Creek Billing is a complete solution that helps carriers reduce expense ratios, improve bill collection rates, and increase customer satisfaction. Duck Creek Insights accelerates insurers’ journeys from data to results, giving them the power of modern insurance analytics to unlock the potential of true digital transformation and realize their business goals.
“Today’s insurers need the speed and flexibility of low-code product configuration and the power of an open, connected technology platform,” said Bart Patrick, European Managing Director at Duck Creek. “In a rapidly-changing market, the insurers who succeed are the ones that can offer their customers the service they have come to expect, and Ageas Seguros has taken the right step in that direction by rapidly executing this major step in their digital transformation.”
