Accenture’s Property & Casualty Insurance Claims Software Receives Industry Awards for Functionality and Service
 
NEW YORK; May 20, 2013 – Accenture’s (NYSE: ACN) property and casualty (P&C) insurance claims management software, Accenture Claim Components, received two XCelent Awards in Celent’s latest report titled “Claims Systems Vendors: North America P/C Insurance 20131.”
 
Accenture Claim Components was recognized with:
 
  • The XCelent Service Award for the leading solution in “Depth of Services.” Celent relies heavily upon qualitative indicators derived from the client reference survey to measure this dimension.
  • The XCelent Functionality Award for the leading solution in “Breadth of Functionality.” Celent reviewed each vendor’s system against the functionality demanded by P&C insurers for this award.

“The role of claims professionals is being redefined with a sharper focus on the delivery of improved outcomes,” said Michael A. Jackowski, global managing director of Accenture Software for P&C Insurance. “We see these awards as recognition of Accenture Claim Component’s ability to help insurers make this shift by improving settlement accuracy, detecting fraudulent activity earlier in the claims cycle and enabling new data-driven claims processes.”

Launched in November 2010 to acknowledge vendor excellence, Celent’s XCelent Awards are designed to help financial institutions and technology providers stay abreast of industry trends by evaluating the shifting vendor marketplace and awarding technology best practices.
 
“Accenture Claim Components is a very strong offering, benefitting from Accenture’s continuing investments,” said Donald Light, director of Celent’s Americas Property/Casualty practice and author of this report. “Its features and functions, portal and usability are all pluses.”
 
Accenture has made an excerpt of the report available on its website.
