Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, USA, (PwC) today said that they have entered into a strategic relationship to co-present their offerings to joint prospects and existing customers. The new relationship combines ELM Solution’s claims litigation technology platform with PwC’s claims management consulting and services, to provide insurance claims clients with deeper insights by “creating a more holistic ecosystem approach.”
Through the collaboration the two companies will enable their mutual clients to leverage the extensive capabilities of Passport Claims Defense for successful outside counsel collaboration, while providing a single reporting source for the entire litigation management life cycle, from the creation of a claim through the outcome of litigation.
PwC and Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions also intend to develop an integration between additional third-party industry-leading claims management solution(s) and Passport Claims Defense, a modular, scalable, and integrated insurance solution.
“Increasingly, legal professionals in the insurance industry seek holistic technology solutions that can work together, while eliminating unnecessary complexity and costs,” said Glenn Paredes, executive vice president and general manager at Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions. “By collaborating with other leading industry providers like PwC, we are better positioned to integrate outside technology, enhance our clients’ insight into their operations, and deliver a world class customer experience.”
