Duck Creek Technologies Reports
Accelerated Growth of SaaS-Delivered
Enterprise Software Solutions

Duck Creek Technologies, a provider of SaaS-delivered enterprise software to the property & casualty insurance industry, reported that bookings related to its SaaS solutions exceeded projections for the first two quarters of the company’s fiscal year 2019, with nine customers taking delivery of their Duck Creek applications via Duck Creek OnDemand, the provider’s SaaS solution for the P&C insurance industry. Six of the nine contracts were for core systems, and the remaining three involved the addition of new digital engagement and business intelligence capabilities. The company’s second quarter ended on February 28th.
“In the first two quarters of our fiscal year, we’ve seen tremendous confidence in SaaS in the marketplace,” said Eugene Van Biert, Duck Creek’s Chief Revenue Officer. “Every year, we see significant growth above and beyond the year before, and with the number of insurers opting for SaaS delivery at this point, I think it is safe to say that carriers now realize that SaaS is the future of P&C insurance.”
