"Storm preparation is a major concern for us here at the marina. Keeping employees and local boaters aware of pending storms is a critical concern.

"We use Weather Defender as an additional resource to provide as close as real time weather data to our guests.  I am still learning how to fine tune the data and am confident it will be a big hit with our customers.  We actually have a flat panel display set up in our office where both our employees and customers can observe weather current data."

"...an absolutely reliable product."

OaheTV / City of Pierre, South Dakota

"Weather Defender brings advanced warnings, accurate and reliable reporting right to my desk. With its advanced features, it provides the edge we need. And if you can get an edge like this, you need to take it. Winter weather is really hard to call.

"Winter weather is a life and death scenario. People make travel plans based on what they see and hear on radio & TV. We use Weather Defender because we need an absolutely reliable product. There are many alternatives which are not as reliable.

"In the case of winter weather for city government, we need predictive capabilities to be as accurate as possible because they use this information to make vital decisions, such as when and where to deploy snow plows, how many staff to allocate, pretty much everything on the decision side requires as much accuracy as possible. Having the edge on knowing when to plow, or how much snow to expect that can be a significant factor, making tens of thousands of dollars of difference.

"Finally, probably the most significant advantage is Weather Defender's e-mail based alerting. Being able to automatically e-mail people at various levels of the decision chain with specific threat information is crucial. Weather Defender keeps everyone on same page by bringing uniform information to all of us simultaneously."

"We now have a powerful weather tool for our business."

by Emily Belden        February 12, 2010  |  9:28 am  |  Category: Testimonials

"For a number of years, we would rely on the free internet weather sites for radar, local news channels for “real time” data, and lightning detectors for on-site alerts. Many of the websites, however, don’t update the radar data frequently. None of the sites gave us any predictive capabilities for where storms were headed.

"We started using [Weather Defender] a couple of years ago, and I was impressed with the frequency of radar updates and the ability for the software to predict where storms would move. With Weather Defender,  we now have a powerful weather tool for our business. The GIS capabilities allow us to fully customize the software for our location.

"We use Weather Defender as our “eye on the sky.” Our outdoor-based employees are trained to be “weather alert,” but Weather Defender's Alert Perimeters help us keep a closer watch on potential storms. Combined with the software's storm track capabilities, we can now be proactive, rather than reactive, when it comes to the weather. And the new Alert sounds, in particular the “thunder clap” and “tornado siren,” scares the daylights out of our office staff when a storm gets too close!"
