Verisk, Duck Creek Expand Relationship Through Data Exchange

Staff Writer | December 21, 2016

Verisk Insurance Solutions announces an agreement with Duck Creek Technologies that will enable Duck Creek customers to access the Verisk Data Exchange. Duck Creek will receive driving data and risk scores from Verisk through a Verisk-built application programming interface (API). Participating Duck Creek insurer customers will be able to use the data with consumer consent to identify safe drivers who might be eligible for discounts.

The Verisk Data Exchange was launched in July 2016. Consenting connected-car owners will have the option to contribute their driving data and seamlessly take advantage of insurers' usage-based insurance (UBI) programs typically designed to reward safe drivers. The Verisk Data Exchange also assigns consumers a driving risk score. Similar to a credit score, it can be used to demonstrate responsible driving history and serve as the basis for car insurance premiums. General Motors was the first auto manufacturer to sign on to the Verisk Data Exchange.

"Duck Creek's software solutions and the Verisk Data Exchange model-ready scores and data will form a powerful combination," says Jim Levendusky, vice president of telematics at Verisk Insurance Solutions. "This will provide a running start for insurers looking to launch UBI programs and offer better integration with the workflows of insurers already in this space."

"Duck Creek currently offers its customers pre-integrated Verisk content through Duck Creek Templates that streamline the underwriting and rating process," says Patti Griffin, chief product officer at Duck Creek Technologies. "Under an exciting expansion of our existing relationship with Verisk, Duck Creek has an additional offering of new prebuilt content that uses scores and other data from the Verisk Data Exchange to enhance solutions for insurers."
