A-PLUS™ Contribution

Overview

With the A-Plus Auto Contribution Accelerator for Personal Lines, participating insurers can contribute loss history information to ISO, a Verisk business, in the preferred A-Plus Auto format from within Duck Creek Content Exchange. Data within the Duck Creek system is automatically mapped to the A-Plus Auto record layout, saving insurers the time and expense of manually formatting and uploading this data to ISO.

The new accelerator builds on several ISO tools already available for Duck Creek Content Exchange and A-Plus Auto. Duck Creek customers that submit loss history data to ISO are immediately eligible to purchase the A-Plus Auto data ordering service and can quickly access loss history from ISO using the existing A-Plus Auto integration available on the Duck Creek Content Exchange. In addition, new contributing insurers will be able to take advantage of the A-Plus Claims Activity Profiler, which enables insurers to optimize loss history report costs via an innovative point-of-quote indicator of an applicant’s existing claims history. The claims history solution can reduce new business acquisition costs by alerting insurers early in the quoting process to the presence of claims, providing the option to order a detailed loss history report. If the solution indicates that a prospective customer has no claims, the insurer can avoid the expense of ordering a full loss history report.
