Accenture (NYSE: ACN) announced that Key Insurance Company has selected Accenture Duck Creek Rating property and casualty (P&C) policy software to support their product development and expansion initiatives.
Michael A. Jackowski, global managing director of Accenture Software for P&C Insurance comments:
“We’re pleased that our software was selected by Key Insurance to help support their product development and geographic expansion goals,” he said. “With its high velocity rating and rules engine, Accenture Duck Creek Rating can help insurers move quickly into new markets by providing outstanding support to both internal and external users.”

Our extensive vendor evaluation process made it clear that no other product in the market could deliver these benefits as well as Accenture Software.”
