Duck Creek’s commercial customers can plug real-time data and insights into their insurance processes - from marketing, quote and bind, to life of policy and renewal

NEW YORK, July 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Planck, an AI-based data platform for commercial insurance, announced today it has partnered with Duck Creek Technologies (Nasdaq: DCT), a leading provider of SaaS insurance core systems, to offer integrated data insights and analytics that provide an accurate view of key insurance risk parameters. An integration between Planck and the Duck Creek Platform gives insurers the ability to drive service and underwriting excellence, by connecting the most up-to-date data insights for the small to medium business sector into their existing workflows and processes.

“Planck has solved the insurance industry’s long-standing need for accurate, real-time business insurance insights,” said Ernie Feirer, Head of U.S. Business at Planck. “By partnering with Duck Creek, we facilitate the delivery of those insights to the software platform where carriers manage risk.”

Planck draws on a wide range of sources for data including online images, text, videos, reviews, and public records, to generate risk-related commercial insights using just a company name and address. Planck’s holistic approach to manufacturing data provides an accurate view of key insurance influencing parameters. Carriers, MGAs, and brokers leverage Planck’s platform for underwriting new and renewing policies, instant quoting, lead generation, and claims.

“Planck’s platform uses AI to generate insights that can make commercial underwriting much faster and more predictable, resulting in the best outcomes for insurers,” said Elizabeth Del Ferro, Vice President, Partner GTM at Duck Creek Technologies. “Their solution is a fantastic value-add for carriers, and Duck Creek is thrilled to welcome them into our rapidly-growing partner ecosystem.”

Planck and their team of data experts provide insurance-related insights and analytics for more than 50 major business segments including restaurants, construction, retail and manufacturing, and multiple insurance lines including workers compensation, errors & omissions, and general liability. The Planck data integration package now available on the Duck Creek Content Exchange sends business entity inputs from the Duck Creek Platform to Planck's API, enabling transmission of up-to-date and accurate underwriting metrics to streamline commercial insurance processes, including submission prefilling & validation, underwriting recommendations, premium audit, renewals, and more, to increase gross written premium while reducing loss and expense ratios. For commercial insurers using the Duck Creek Platform, the Planck partnership offers a simple and convenient avenue to easier and more accurate underwriting powered by AI, while using a single API call across these multiple use cases.
