A new software tool will help companies prepare for weather events by converting forecasting data in to user-specific insights on how it will affect their business.

The product – known as Insights Dashboard – has been created by the weather technology company ClimaCell, who say that right now weather-sensitive industries must devote significant resources to analysing multiple forecasting sources to understand the likely impact of weather on daily operations.

According to ClimaCell, the dashboard tool interprets this data for them to provide quick, comprehensible insights on where, when and how their business will be affected.

The software uses AI and machine-learning technology to compare historical weather data with historical business performance data to help the model predict business outcomes for different weather events.

The software can be used across a range of industries including aviation, the energy sector, construction and on-demand transit where it can help users to make decisions about fleet management based on factors such as how consumer-related weather behaviour affects demand.

“Everyone from the owners of a local construction company to a multinational energy giant stand to benefit from getting a better insight on how the weather impacts their specific business at any given point in time,” said Shimon Elkabetz, ClimaCell’s co-founder and CEO.
