Accenture's (NYSE: ACN) insurance claims management software application, Accenture Claim Components, was rated "Strong Positive", the highest possible rating, in Gartner's latest "MarketScope for North American Property and Casualty Insurance Claims Management Modules."1

Gartner's MarketScope provides a comparative evaluation of stand-alone claims management modules that support commercial, personal and specialty insurance lines of business. The assessment takes into account seven major criteria: market understanding, offering/product strategy, product and service, overall viability, customer experience, sales execution/pricing, and sales strategy.

"Accenture Claim Components is unmatched in providing leading-edge "codeless configuration", allowing claims handlers to configure the application without traditional programming knowledge," said Michael A. Jackowski, global managing director of Accenture Software for P&C insurance. "It also delivers other advantages including an unprecedented level of business intelligence and analytics, made possible through a comprehensive claims data model, dashboards, a pre-configured reporting database, and real time analytics. We believe our strong positive rating is evidence of how these features truly set Accenture Claim Components apart from the competition."

"Accenture Claim Components' "codeless configuration" is a critical and differentiating feature as it helps insurers quickly and easily change the application's behavior and workflow, thus making continuous improvement of the claims process a reality," said Michael A. Costonis, global head of Accenture Claims Services. "Accenture Claim Components is also unmatched in driving the next level of customer and agency interaction through its portal and mobile capabilities for agents and policyholders."

Accenture Claim Components is a Web-based technology solution designed to help insurers -from the world's largest to smaller carriers - improve the efficiency of their claims-handling operations. Currently used by more than 65,000 claims handlers worldwide to process more than 40 million insurance claims each year, Accenture Claim Components supports core claims transactions from first notice of loss through to financials and reserve management.
