Accenture Helps AXA’s Italian Subsidiary Quixa Accelerate Insurance Product Development and Increase Customer Satisfaction

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has completed the implementation of Accenture Duck Creek Rating software at Quixa SpA, the Italian subsidiary of AXA that provides motor insurance online and via telephone. Quixa is using Accenture Duck Creek Rating to transform its product definition and deployment capabilities and enhance its existing business management processes.

As a rapidly growing motor insurer, Quixa wanted a solution that provided highly flexible product, rating and rules configuration capabilities while allowing a seamless integration to its existing legacy systems. Following the 12-week implementation of Accenture Duck Creek Rating, Quixa now has the flexibility to quickly respond to changing market conditions and provide dynamic pricing based on customer relationships. The company can also better support customers with rapid introduction of new products and high-volume internet quoting.

“Innovation is a key driver for Quixa,” said Filippo Sirotti, CEO of Quixa SpA. “The company stands out in the Italian market as a pioneering provider of innovative solutions. Following this approach, Quixa has identified the Accenture Duck Creek Rating software as the perfect match to further support its vision of delivering an exceptional customer experience. We rely on the highly configurable nature of this product to enhance our business management processes and support our growth in a competitive market.”

“Our work with Quixa will enable them to deliver an exceptional experience to their customers,” said Michael A. Jackowski, global managing director of Accenture Software for P&C Insurance. “Working with our insurance software Center of Excellence in Barcelona, we are able to provide industry and delivery expertise, accelerating the success of our expanding European client base.”

Accenture’s award-winning policy and claims software offers an integrated suite of software with modules that can be implemented individually or as part of a broader migration strategy. Accenture’s offerings enable insurers of all sizes to benefit from a flexible suite of P&C software to configure products, transact lines of business and process claims. Accenture’s policy and claims software is a component of Accenture Property & Casualty Insurance Services, a business service within Accenture’s Financial Services operating group that provides consulting, technology and outsourcing solutions to P&C insurers and serves more than 70 clients worldwide.
