Benchmark: Every Property Has a Weather History

Natural hazard analysis reports


Benchmark Overview

Natural hazard analysis reports

Benchmark® provides natural hazard analysis reports from weather events in near real time, including property-specific date of loss and history analysis for hail – delivered to you in the Verisk platforms you use today, including Xactimate, and XactAnalysis.

With Benchmark you can:

  • Minimize guesswork by field or desk adjusters.
  • Reduce loss adjustment expenses through better management and identification of vandalism or fraud at an early stage.
  • Speed up the claims process and reduce cycle times.

Based on XactAnalysis data, 30% of hail-related claims list inaccurate dates of loss, often leading to non-catastrophe claims classification and costing millions in lost reinsurance recoveries.

Sample reports

You can order Benchmark reports for hail, straight line wind, hurricane wind, and lightning strikes.
