Outline Systems, Inc. and Duck Creek Technologies Announce New Partnership

Agreement Offers Carrier Clients of Both Organizations Next Step Toward True Straight-Through Processing

SOMERSET, NJ and BOLIVAR, MO--(Marketwire - May 23, 2011) - Outline Systems, Inc. (OSI), a leading provider of IT solutions and services for insurance organizations, and Duck Creek Technologies (Duck Creek), a provider of innovative software and services for the insurance industry, are pleased to announce the two companies have formed a partnership which will integrate OSI's ProducerOne™ with Duck Creek Policy Admin™.

"Duck Creek and Outline have collaborated to bring unique, best-of-breed solutions to market together with the integration of industry-leading policy administration and producer on-boarding, compensation and marketing systems," said Bob Drake, director of sales at OSI. "The speed at which new business can be processed very directly correlates to how quickly an insurance carrier can verify a producer's credentials. Now, Duck Creek and OSI customers can complete this verification within the policy administration process. This collaboration is the next step toward true straight-through processing."

By combining the capabilities of OSI's ProducerOne, a comprehensive producer management system that addresses the needs of insurance carriers by improving transparency and enhancing agency-carrier relationships and establishing true ease of doing business, with Duck Creek Policy Admin™, a best-of-breed solution designed on a flexible platform to handle all lines of business, including personal, commercial and specialty lines, the companies will effectively take the producer lifecycle management, licensing and compliance process and the policy administration process and integrate the two solutions into a more seamless, end-to-end insurance process.

"Our partnership with Outline Systems complements our overall product strategy in a significant way as we seek to offer our customers a seamless underwriting process," said John Roller, senior vice president, product management for Duck Creek.

OSI and Duck Creek will be demonstrating this newly-integrated solution at the ACORD-LOMA Insurance Systems Forum, to be held May 22-24 in San Diego. For more information, please stop by the OSI Booth # 131 or Duck Creek Booth # 715 at the Forum.
