Broomfield, CO | October 30, 2019 – ICAT, a highly specialized, digital-based underwriter and producer of U.S. catastrophe insurance and a Victor company, announced today new digital innovations for easier engagement with residential agents and policyholders in California and Hawaii.
The newly enhanced ICAT Online platform migrates ICAT’s existing residential Hawaii hurricane and California earthquake insurance programs into one, streamlined platform, where agents can quickly obtain quotes, bind coverage, and generate policy documents. Integration with Google Maps makes it easy for agents to identify home and landscape features to complete quotes for their insureds within minutes.

Available free to download on iOS and Android mobile devices, My ICAT allows policyholders, among other things, to file claims and check status; contact their agent; complete self-service property inspections; and receive timely and informative updates and information from ICAT’s hurricane experts.
