Collision Sciences (Missisauga, Ontario) a company whose technology is designed to allow insurance companies to quickly and cost effectively obtain Event Data Recorder (EDR) data from vehicles to be used in claims investigations, announced today that it has joined insurance core system and insurance platform provider Duck Creek Technologies’ partner ecosystem. , Collision Sciences’ technology and EDR vehicle support API can now be integrated with Duck Creek’s Claims solution via an Anywhere Enabled Integration available for download from the Duck Creek Content Exchange.
Collision Sciences technology helps insurers and other parties access data critical to determining what happened in an accident after a vehicle collision has occurred. Factors such as speed, braking, g-forces at impact, steering and evasive maneuvers, as well as prior accident facts are underutilized in investigations, resulting in improper decisions and payments, according to the vendor. Collision Sciences’ solution lets insurance carriers access this vehicle data, have it saved to the cloud, and be immediately available to complete a fraud, liability, or injury investigation.
“Partnering with Duck Creek allows Collision Sciences’ technology to be integrated in the workflows of carriers who are working to increase the accuracy of claim outcomes,” comments Jason Bayley, founder and CEO, Collision Sciences. “The integration package allows an automobile insurer to instantly retrieve EDR vehicle support information for the involved vehicles, with instructions on how the claim handler can request or instantly review EDR Report data, for an affordable fee. EDR data reporting has traditionally been too expensive and only used in select claims investigations. Collision Sciences is enabling carriers to quickly and cost-effectively access this critical data for a significantly greater number of accidents.”
Taking Full Advantage of Data
“Vehicle data has transformed the underwriting and pricing side of auto insurance, but claims departments have not been able to take full advantage of this trend,” comments Elizabeth Del Ferro, VP, Partner GTM, Duck Creek Technologies. “We are pleased to partner with Collision Sciences and make their solution available to our joint customers.”
