The SilverDAT II interface description for unhindered data exchange – Available free of charge from DAT customer services

Data exchange between the repair workshop or the technical expert office and responsible passenger car insurance company

According to the defined interface formats determined by Gesamtverband der Deutschen Versicherungswirtschaft e. V. (GDV) for several years, with DAT-Net, we have developed a system that permits the user to send repair cost calculations and damage images direct to the responsible passenger car insurance company via protected lines and a distributor server of the GDV.

The insurers are then able to process the data records received immediately which leads to the reduction of the damage processing and therefore also contributes to regulating the damage. DAT-Net is an integral component of SilverDAT II. No costs result for SilverDAT II users when transferring the data to the insurance companies. these costs are taken over by the insurance company themselves.

Fast and simple data exchange

Optimisation of data exchange with insurance companies in the scope of processing via DAT Net.

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

Being a SilverDAT user, you are already being provided with a system for electronic data exchange with passenger car insurers (market coverage 97%) today with the integrated DAT-Net. With the new SilverDAT update from July 2009, we are now providing you with the new DAT-Net Webservice available as extended service for DAT-Net free of charge.

We wish you all the best and success in your business.

Best regards
