Earth Networks Announces Launch of Sferic Connect

Sponsored by Businesswire

Weather safety leader Earth
 today announced the launch of Sferic Connect, a new mobile
application and hub designed to deliver critical weather information and
alerts to distributed employees across an organization or enterprise.
Now state and local governments, school districts, hospitals, police,
fire and first responders can access pinpoint weather conditions and
important notifications at-a-glance from a single point of distribution,
ensuring employees have standardized, reliable information that’s
relevant to their exact needs and location. Sferic Connect is an
integral part of a comprehensive, real-time weather monitoring and
alerting solution, which is a must-have for every safety-minded business
or organization.

For large businesses and institutions, communicating and acting upon
dangerous weather conditions can be a challenge. Employees may be
working in remote locations, across time zones, in a variety of
environments with different stakeholders. With Sferic Connect, a central
administrator chooses the weather information that matters to their
agency, selects alert groups and configures custom weather warnings and
notices that are delivered directly to the employees’ mobile devices via
push alerts. The result is total compliance with organizational policies
and one standard source of truth for an organization’s weather
information and protocols.

“We are thrilled to introduce Sferic Connect as a direct response to our
customers’ request for full control over their organization’s weather
information,” said Anuj Agrawal, Chief Marketing Officer at Earth
Networks. “No more staff opting out, checking free weather apps not
licensed for commercial use, or using their own judgement to make
critical decisions. Sferic Connect gives everyone the same clear
information, alerts, and call-to-action in an easy-to-use app, so
operations staff can be sure their organization is ready for any kind of
severe weather event.”

Sferic Connect is customizable for your organization and features:

  • Push Alerts for Weather and Lightning – Choose what, how, and
    when to notify offsite stakeholders of custom weather parameters and
