Boston, March 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Duck Creek Technologies (Nasdaq: DCT), a leading, global technology solutions provider to the property and casualty (P&C) insurance industry, announces the company has recognized LTI as the inaugural “Duck Creek Hatch-a-thon” winner at Formation ’22. This year is the first year Duck Creek has opened its Hatch-a-thon to external guests.

Duck Creek and EY, a global leader in assurance, tax, strategy, transaction and consulting services, who was the premier sponsor of the Hatch-a-thon, welcomed members throughout the global developer community to compete over the course of 36-hours. Duck Creek recognized the Hatch-a-thon as an opportunity for partners and customers to show off their skillsets and share their ideas to enhance the value of the Duck Creek Platform. This year’s session sparked interest from 36 teams whose projects were judged by a panel based on innovation, product impact, business impact, and execution.

This year’s winning team from LTI, produced a one click quote from existing policy documents using their solution SWITCH. Their solution leverages the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and Duck Creek APIs to reduce the time-consuming data entry process to provide an insurance quote for a customer while also reducing the cost of customer acquisition for carriers and agents. The solution can be extended to multiple use cases such as book transfer/rollover and legacy to Duck Creek Policy Migration.

“It is critical that we continue to advance strategic innovation within the industry,” said Quinn Easterbrook, Chief Enterprise Architect at Duck Creek, “and it is even more exciting when we are creating a forum where our customers and partners get to be a part of that.”

Other Duck Creek ecosystem partners who competed in this year’s Hatch-a-thon were:

  • Atos
  • Coforge
  • CogniSure
  • Cognizant
  • EY
  • Hexaware
  • HTC
  • Mindtree
  • Planck Data
  • Xceedance

Duck Creek was delighted to have a handful of Hatch-a-thon participants from LTI on stage at Formation ’22 to accept their award and prizes, which included a $1,000 donation to the charity of the winner’s choice, the Ukrainian Red Cross Society.
