Overall Satisfaction with The Weather Company

We use the Weather Company’s Data to determine weather patterns and trends that may impact our clients’ business needs. As a staffing partner to our clients, we look to be as proactive as possible when determining if clients will be able to hire during certain times of the year, how storms and severe weather impacts their business, and ultimately how much of an impact that may have on us. The Weather Company’s data helps us to make those critical decisions and have a faster turn around time for short term needs.
  • Long and short term forecasting data.
  • Streamlined and easy to understand weather data and radars.
  • Easy to read articles on upcoming weather events, trends.
  • Tips on preparedness for business professionals.
  • Forecasts are not always accurate.
  • Winter weather forecasts are now often now-casted which can be challenging for proactive planning.
  • Would love to see more tips on how businesses can prepare for severe weather by the use of the Weather Company’s data.
  • Plan ahead business support for our clients.
  • Awareness of weather events, with enough time to pivot as needed.
  • Determine the necessity of seasonal roles staffing needs based on seasonal forecasts.
Support for the Weather Company has not been an issue. The predictive analytics processes that they use allow them to remain a strong force in the world of weather patterns and forecasts. Brand recognition allows them to continue to grow and develop in a world that is not as crowded as other predictive analytics areas.
