This how-to guide was designed to help operational leaders minimize the impacts and safety risks caused by severe weather.
Maximize sales by ensuring you have enough inventory when customers need it most with our extended weather outlooks.
During a weather disaster the service industry is critical to the smooth operations of the community. Ensure essential employees and customers can come and go safely from your locations with our location specific forecasts and warnings.
StormGeo’s highly accurate alerts allow retail and hospitality businesses to continue serving communities and still shut down safely before the storm. By taking advantage of our ‘all-clear’ signal, stores, hotels and restaurants can rapidly re-open with confidence, safe in the knowledge that the weather threat has passed.
Before we had no way of predicting [exactly where a storm would hit] so we couldn’t prepare. It took us longer to open a store after a storm. Now, we can get a [grocery] store open within 24 hours of a storm hitting, and it’s amazing. It’s amazing how much the community appreciates the fact that we are open when other retailers don’t open for a week, sometimes two.Director of Asset Protection

I’m very glad that we chose to work with StormGeo when we did, just a week prior to Hurricane Harvey, and I think the service was invaluable during our ride out.Justin Sefcik

The retail and hospitality industries are heavily impacted when adverse weather strikes. Weather conditions can make or break a business. What is perceived as bad weather can keep customers from venturing out, while unexpected pleasant conditions can drive more business to your door than you’re prepared to contend with.
These factors can affect both a business' reputation and its bottom line. In addition, when severe weather events occur, the retail and hospitality industries are often relied on to provide food, shelter and safety to surrounding community members in need.
Managers need timely, site-specific weather intelligence and expert support in order to protect people (both staff and customers), property and the business reputation from the severe weather hazards.
StormGeo offers solutions to help retail and hospitality businesses prepare the appropriate response plans and minimize the effects of severe weather events.
