The user conference -- themed "Design. Develop. Deliver." -- focused on expanding Duck Creek customers' knowledge of the EXAMPLE Platform® and Duck Creek's vision of "Product in a Day."

Highlights of this year's conference included a "State of the Company" address from Duck Creek CEO Doug Roller and a presentation on "Product Development Best Practices" from analyst Matthew Josefowicz of Celent. In addition, Duck Creek customers SUA Insurance Company and Mutual Benefit Group shared their project successes, lessons learned, and tactical and strategic plans using the EXAMPLE Platform. User Flocking attendees also had access to technical and business training sessions, product demonstrations, and product previews.

"The User Flocking sessions are a wonderful way for Duck Creek and its customers to get together and share ideas," commented Rick Laabs, Chief Information Officer, Mutual Benefit Group.

"I'd like to thank the customers and prospects who attended our User Flocking," said Roller. "I had a chance to talk with many of them during the conference. They appeared to be very engaged and indicated that the sessions were pertinent, beneficial, and entertaining."

On the lighter side, the User Flocking afforded attendees a chance to stroll and shop along historic River Street, watch cargo ships traversing the Savannah River, and join Duck Creek for a trolley tour of historic Savannah that ended with dinner at the historic Railroad Museum.
