Customers to Benefit from New Strategic Relationship

Oct. 17, 2016 — Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, USA (PwC) have entered into a strategic relationship that will enable the companies to co-present their offerings to joint customers and prospects. The new relationship combines ELM Solution’s claims litigation technology platform with PwC’s extensive claims management consulting and services. This combined effort will provide insurance claims clients with deeper insights and better engineered workflow throughout the entire claims and litigation process by creating a more holistic ecosystem approach, and allowing them to avoid managing various, one-point solutions. 

By joining together, the two companies 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 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, 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.”  

Through comprehensive technology solutions, in-depth data and analytics, and professional services, Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions enables legal and claims organizations to address the intricate complexities they face and ultimately make better business decisions. More information about Passport and related offerings is available at the ELM Solutions website.
