Press Release (ePRNews.com) - BELTSVILLE, Md. - Feb 15, 2017 - AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions, the world’s leading commercial weather source partnering with more than 240 of Fortune 500 companies and government agencies, and Alertus Technologies, a market leader in emergency mass notification systems, today announced a new partnership to deliver AccuWeather’s SkyGuard site-specific warnings through the Alertus ThreatWatcher notification tool. Warnings and alerts from Alertus ThreatWatcher powered by AccuWeather SkyGuard Warnings will help provide faster lead times for timely sheltering in the event of severe weather such as a tornado, hurricane, or blizzard.
“AccuWeather’s commitment to safety and preparedness every day has never been more evident than the establishment of this partnership with the industry leader in notification dissemination,” said Mark Ebel, VP of Enterprise Solutions at AccuWeather. “We are happy to find a company as excited as we are about saving lives and protecting property with more precise and actionable weather intelligence.”
Alertus ThreatWatcher is a customizable tool that can automatically broadcast real-time weather updates and up-to-the-minute, zip-code specific warnings from AccuWeather through multiple endpoints of the Alertus Emergency Notification System. These endpoints can include the Alertus Alert Beacon®, Alertus Desktop™ Notification, and the Alertus Mobile App.
The Alertus Emergency Notification System is designed to cost-effectively integrate communications and facilities systems to monitor for emergency situations and speed the dissemination of urgent alert information. The system leverages existing infrastructure and IT assets to seamlessly integrate with disparate and legacy systems.
“AccuWeather is the most trusted source of weather information in the world,” said Amanda Sassano, Director of Commercial Sales at Alertus Technologies. “We’re excited to have their highly-accurate weather updates integrated with the Alertus ThreatWatcher. Disseminating accurate weather updates and warnings is a critical component for any campus, facility or organization’s overall emergency preparedness plan.”
AccuWeather SkyGuard severe weather warnings are issued by certified warning meteorologists to clients as the storm begins to unfold. Unlike other sources, AccuWeather’s warnings are customer specific and provided in real-time by meteorologists watching over the client’s specific locations – a greater differentiator than other warning providers. These customized, precise site-specific notifications include snow, flood, hail, high winds, hurricanes, tornadoes, and much more translate into life-saving actions and substantial savings for business and industry.
Also announced as part of the partnership, Alertus and AccuWeather are co-hosting an educational webinar on February 22, 2017 at 2:00pm EST. The 45-minute session offers a deep dive into how Alertus and AccuWeather can enhance an organization’s severe weather emergency preparedness plans.
