AccuWeather’s D3 Platform is a suite of customized products to help you and your business prepare for weather events that can impact your bottom line. The first is the D3 Express Platform, which features AccuWeather’s Impact Indicator™. The Impact Indicator™ uses 10 years of historical weather data to classify disruptive weather by event and magnitude.
Using a custom proprietary algorithm developed by AccuWeather, we have created an impact value ranked on a scale of 1 (Insignificant) to 10 (Extreme) for how disruptive a weather event will be to your business. The impact, or risk value, considers the probability of a weather event occurring and the loss that the event caused at a particular location.
AccuWeather D3 Express lets you know when extremely disruptive weather events are forecasted for all of your locations so that you can plan and stay on top of the latest weather developments and strategize to meet anticipated demand and be ahead of the competition. Customers can try the D3 Express Application for free via the form on this page- just create an account and select your target number of zip codes. Developers can access our API to integrate this critical information with ERP, logistics, sales or supply chain systems.
Business decision makers want to know: what are consumers buying? What events are people planning? Will I reach my destination safely? How are people feeling? AccuWeather empowers you to leverage the patterns of the past to predict the future. Here are just a couple of scenarios in which AccuWeather D3 Express provides value.
