While the onus has long been on users of information technology to cobble together solutions from disparate vendors in order to achieve optimal outcomes, vendors are increasingly working together to package complementary products. This week, Troy, N.Y.-based Pitney Bowes Business Insight and Bolivar, Mo.-based Duck Creek Technologies Inc. said they are partnering to offer a comprehensive policy administration solution.

The two companies demonstrated the joint solution At the ACORD LOMA Insurance Systems Forum in Las Vegas. According to the companies, the integrated offering ties together Pitney Bowes Business Insight's Spectrum Data Quality platform and location intelligence solutions with the Duck Creek Policy Administration product in order to provide carriers with customer information validation, data enrichment and geo-spatial analysis in a single API called directly from the Duck Creek user interface and entirely transparent to the business user. When an agent or underwriter enters data into the Duck Creek Policy Administration product, it makes a Web services call to Pitney Bowes Business Insight Spectrum Platform. Spectrum returns a comprehensive set of enriched data, including address verification, proximity to risk and emergency services, and identification of the exact location of the insured assets.
