Duck Creek announces partnership with SambaSafety

Duck Creek Technologies has announced that driver risk solutions company SambaSafety has joined the Duck Creek Partner Ecosystem.

SambaSafety’s Volta service provides comprehensive violation data and an enhanced rules engine designed to accurately assess and price driver risk. A new integration with Duck Creek Policy will give carriers access to Volta from within the Duck Creek platform.

“Our insurance risk solutions provide cost-effective visibility into drivers’ behavior,” said Rick Fendell, director of insurance and data solutions at SambaSafety. “Partnering with Duck Creek and leveraging the Duck Creek Anywhere API is a perfect choice for us, and we are excited to help even more auto insurers make the right decisions at the right time, for the lowest possible cost.”

Volta delivers MVR order filters and indicators, and can be paired with SambaSafety’s state data services with direct access to state motor-vehicle department MVRs and alternative violation data services. By accessing Volta directly through Duck Creek Policy, insurers can reduce MVR spend by up to 60%, Duck Creek said.

“SambaSafety’s solution engine is designed to optimize not only the cost of MVR ordering at bind, but also to enhance insureds’ buying experiences through cost-effective driver data at quote,” said Jeff Wargin, chief product officer at Duck Creek Technologies. “Their solution is a win-win for insurers as well as their customers, and Duck Creek is thrilled to welcome them into our rapidly growing Partner Ecosystem.”

“I am continually amazed by the abilities of Willis Re colleagues and the incredible platform we have to serve clients,” May said. “I am excited about this new role and look forward to working with our branches and segment leaders to better serve clients.”
