Meercat RiskView is licensed on a subscription basis.

Each Subscription is designed to meet your needs today and reflect those needs as they change over time.

To meet your needs, there are four levels of features and they can be provided to from 1 to any number of users.

The Subscription is a recurring annual fee based on the number of users logged in to RiskView at any one time.

Any number of users can access RiskView, but only the subscribed number at a time. These units are called Concurrent Users.

Concurrent Users are available in units of 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50 and Unlimited Users.

In addition to number of Concurrent Users, clients can also specify the Subscription Level which influences the features available to the users.

Common and Specific Subscription Level Feature options are set out below.

Common Features

  • 24/7 Access

    Your RiskView service runs 24/7, just like you do. And apart from a few minutes every few months for upgrades, it will be there when you need it.

  • Amazon Hosting

    RiskView is hosted on Amazon infrastructure to meet your security, reliability and performance requirements.

  • Upgrading Services

    We handle all the upgrades and ensure that your service is back on-line as soon as possible. We’ll also work around your business needs so if you’ve got deadlines to meet, we can reschedule to suit.

  • On-Going Enhancements

    Slowly but surely we are enhancing RiskView based on your requests and ideas and our vision for the future. And, depending on your Subscription options, will get access to everything.

  • Office hours’ access to Meercat Support Desk

    We’re here to help you through any issues you might have, by phone, email, or chat. We can even screen share to see what’s going on from your end.

  • Hourly database backups

    Every hour, on the hour, your data is being backed up. To get technical, we do a full backup every 24 hours and an incremental one for every hour in between. If you have a problem, let us know and we can put you back where you were less than an hour ago. And, if anything happens to Amazon, well, we copy those backups off-site so as to multiply the redundancy. If you’d like access to your backups, let us know and we can send you a copy every so often.

Subscription Levels
