Duck Creek expands Partner Ecosystem program through a new relationship with smart home telematics specialist Roost

Duck Creek Technologies has expanded its Partner Ecosystem program through a new relationship with Roost, the leading provider of Wi-Fi-enabled smart home telematics solutions. Roost’s smart 9V battery for smoke alarms, smart water leak and freeze detector, and smart garage door sensor provide peace of mind to property owners and rich data to insurers. These affordable, easy-to-install Wi-Fi solutions are delivered to insurers’ policyholders through a full turn-key program which includes a white-labeled mobile app and cloud-based notification engine. Today, an Anywhere Enabled Integration available in Duck Creek’s Content Exchange allows Roost’s Smart Leak sensor to automatically send a message and create an incident within Duck Creek Claims upon detection of a leak.
“Improving customer engagement and helping insurers reduce the risk of damage and decrease potential claims cost is a top priority for us at Roost,” said Roel Peeters, Roost ceo and co-founder. “Partnering with Duck Creek and leveraging the Duck Creek Anywhere API makes perfect sense for us, and we are pleased to be reaching and protecting an even larger group of customers with our smart sensor solution platform.”
“To help insurers and policyholders mitigate loss, increase customer engagement, and reduce annual claim costs, it is critical to align with a partner that employs modern, connected technologies like smart home devices,” said Eddie Jones, vp of Strategies and Alliances at Duck Creek Technologies. “Roost is focused on enhancing the traditional property insurance model with the kinds of innovative products today’s customers are adopting rapidly, and Duck Creek is happy to welcome them into our rapidly growing partner ecosystem.”
Roost is a technology company headquartered in Sunnyvale, Cqlifornia. As creators of the Roost Smart Battery and the Roost Smart Water Leak and Freeze Detector, Roost has developed a unique, patented, connected platform of data sensors that deliver the ultimate in installation simplicity and the most affordable way for insurers to provide Home Telematics solutions. Roost’s primary go-to-market approach is through Insurance companies deploying directly to their policyholders. The effect is a reduction in claim cost expenses(fire and water perils costing $20bn per year in the US), as well as driving policyholder engagement through a content-rich, digital mobile app experience, impacting retention and customer acquisition.
