Working with Roost helps Duck Creek customers lower loss ratios, boost profitable portfolio growth, and improve customer experiences
BOSTON – May 29, 2019 – Duck Creek Technologies has expanded its Partner Ecosystem program through a new relationship with Roost, the leading provider of Wi-Fi-enabled smart home telematics solutions. Roost’s smart 9V battery for smoke alarms, smart water leak and freeze detector, and smart garage door sensor provide peace of mind to property owners and rich data to insurers. These affordable, easy-to-install Wi-Fi solutions are delivered to insurers’ policyholders through a full turn-key program which includes a white-labeled mobile app and cloud-based notification engine. Today, an Anywhere Enabled Integration available in Duck Creek’s Content Exchangeallows Roost’s Smart Leak sensor to automatically send a message and create an incident within Duck Creek Claims upon detection of a leak.
“Improving customer engagement and helping insurers reduce the risk of damage and decrease potential claims cost is a top priority for us at Roost,” said Roel Peeters, Roost CEO and Co-Founder. “Partnering with Duck Creek and leveraging the Duck Creek Anywhere API makes perfect sense for us, and we are pleased to be reaching and protecting an even larger group of customers with our smart sensor solution platform.”
“To help insurers and policyholders mitigate loss, increase customer engagement, and reduce annual claim costs, it is critical to align with a partner that employs modern, connected technologies like smart home devices,” said Eddie Jones, Vice President of Strategies and Alliances at Duck Creek Technologies. “Roost is focused on enhancing the traditional property insurance model with the kinds of innovative products today’s customers are adopting rapidly, and Duck Creek is happy to welcome them into our rapidly growing partner ecosystem.”
