Duck Creek
STINGRAY COMPETITOR RATING &
COMMENTS
Duck Creek Technologies seeks to become the leading provider of product lifecycle management software and services for the insurance industry. How does product lifecycle management differ from policy lifecycle management? Product lifecycle management (PLCM) focuses on managing the entire insurance product manufacturing process from the cradle (product design and creation) to adult-hood (filing and deployment), and-when necessary-to the grave (market withdrawal). Unlike traditional policy lifecycle management, which focuses primarily on the distribution process, PLCM recognizes that a great policy distribution system means little if product quality, timeliness, efficiency, and profitability are ignored. How can carriers benefit from implementing PLCM? Leading companies in other industries have practiced forms of PLCM for years, and the benefits to these companies have been significant. Computer manufacturing companies, for example, have created significant margin and quality advantages by continuously improving all phases of the product lifecycle process, from design to supply chain, to manufacturing, to sales, to distribution and support. Duck Creek’s XML-enabled EXAMPLE Platform® enables insurance carriers and other participants in the insurance distribution process to define and develop rating, underwriting, and other policy-related services for deployment to all points on the product value chain.
