NEW YORK – Aug. 12, 2021 – Glia, a leading provider of Digital Customer Service, announced today that it has partnered with Duck Creek Technologies (Nasdaq: DCT), a leading provider of SaaS insurance core systems, to offer Duck Creek’s customers Glia’s Digital Customer Service platform. This enables insurers to provide a significantly enhanced level of agent and customer service, reduce call times and boost efficiencies.
“There’s been a massive global shift towards self-service, often leaving agents and customers in need of help during more complex processes,” said Dan Michaeli, CEO and co-founder of Glia. “By partnering with Duck Creek, we can empower P&C insurance carriers to effectively serve agents and customers in the digital domain, delivering experiences that will differentiate and increase brand loyalty in this highly competitive market while reducing servicing costs.

An Anywhere Enabled Integration is available on Duck Creek’s Content Exchange for customers to easily add Glia to their agent- and customer-facing portals. Glia and Duck Creek already have several mutual customers and look forward to bringing value together to many more.
