Quixa SpA, the direct company of AXA Group in Italy, goes live with Accenture’s rating software to enhance product configuration and business management capabilities

NEW YORK; March 13, 2013 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) announced Quixa SpA Italy has gone into production with Accenture Duck Creek Rating product, enabling the motor insurer to improve their rating capabilities and enhance their existing business management processes.

As a rapidly growing motor insurer, Quixa SpA wanted to identify a solution that provided highly flexible product, rating and rules configuration capabilities while allowing a seamless integration to existing legacy systems.

Following a 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.

Additionally, AXA in the Mediterranean and Latin American Region (AXA MedLA) implemented Accenture Duck Creek Rating Engine in January 2013 as part of a robust core property & casualty software architecture that could also be easily deployed in their other subsidiaries.
