FlatCat data can be used to identify claims that should be coded as catastrophe losses. Fewer claims will slip through the cracks, eliminating the need to check information manually. You’ll also be able to format the data, integrate it into your own system, create customized reports, and perform a broad range of analyses.

How it works

How it works

FlatCat Canada is an encrypted flat-file database requiring IT capabilities to incorporate it into your system. Using Verisk’s secure FTP servers, FlatCat Canada provides a daily data file that includes:

  • catastrophe serial numbers
  • dates of occurrence
  • provinces affected
  • types of catastrophes and perils
  • all loss estimates from preliminary to final (estimated payment, average payment, number of claims, total dollars)

Our staff will coordinate with your IT personnel to implement a daily download. Once the updates to your system are in place, the process works automatically. The data you download is always secure, as we support PGP and FTP.
