Duck Creek Joins IVANS Partner Program

Staff Writer | March 07, 2017

IVANS, a division of Applied Systems, announces that Duck Creek Technologies has joined the IVANS Partner Program for Insurer Solutions. With this agreement, Duck Creek’s suite of software is now included in IVANS Ready for Download and IVANS Ready for Real-time programs, which reduces the time to implement, test, and deploy interface services for mutual insurers and MGAs.

This partnership will enable mutual customers to take advantage of Duck Creek’s configurable and function-rich solutions to build agency-insurer connections via IVANS. Further, insurers utilizing Duck Creek On-Demand will be able to leverage cloud-to-cloud connectivity to the IVANS network for simpler, managed communications.

“Insurers are offering more digital distribution and servicing options to their agencies to improve communication and better support end customers,” says Michael A. Jackowski, CEO of Duck Creek. “It is exciting to be included in the IVANS Partner Program and to have the opportunity to collaborate on solutions that help insurers facilitate deployment, increase efficiency and enhance experiences with their agencies.”

IVANS currently works with nearly 40 Agency Management System providers and connects more than 350 insurers to more than 30,000 independent insurance agencies for streamlined download and real-time data distribution. The IVANS Partner Program brings together leading third-party software providers to collaborate with IVANS to more efficiently and effectively develop and implement connectivity solutions that enable insurers, MGAs, and agencies to drive a more connected distribution channel. The IVANS Partner Program is currently comprised of IVANS Partners for Agency Solutions and IVANS Partners for Insurer Solutions.

“Digital transformation across the insurance industry has insurers evaluating new and better strategies to improve connectivity and communications with their independent agency distribution channel,” says Bill Tedrick, vice president of IVANS Insurance. “We look forward to working with Duck Creek as a solution partner to provide end-to-end solutions for digital distribution and automated servicing with agency partners.”
