AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions: The "Gold Standard"

So, says Tulane University:
If knowledge is power, when it comes to dealing with hurricane season in New Orleans, the Office of Emergency Management is counting on a powerful new tool to keep the Tulane University community in the know.

Beginning on July 1, Tulane will switch to the AccuWeather service, which will keep administrators supplied with up-to-the-minute information. 
“AccuWeather is really the industry gold standard in tropical monitoring, forecasting and storm tracking,” says Norris Yarbrough, director of the Office of Emergency Management. “We’ll get an increased level of accuracy in the data they push to us, as well as the amount of data we’ll receive. It will allow us to make decisions with the most up-to-date information out there.”

This is testament to our incredible team and our state-of-the-art technology.
