You can format the data to suit your needs and integrate it into your own system. FlatCat gives you the flexibility to create customized reports and perform a broad range of analyses.

How it Works

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

  • catastrophe serial numbers
  • dates of occurrence
  • states 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 and make any system changes needed to implement an automated daily download. Once you have those changes in place, the process works automatically. The data you download is always secure because we support PGP encryption over FTP and Tumbleweed’s Security Suite.
