Ahead of the Weather

A rainy day can be bad news for a contractor. Not only can it put the project behind schedule, but also tools and materials, including freshly poured slabs, can be damaged by rain, wind, and debris. SWIFT Weather, http://www.swiftmobile.net/, Minneapolis, Minn., announced its SWIFT Mobile, a weather-tracking tool specifically designed for use with handheld devices.

Slated for release March 31, 2007, SWIFT Weather says the new software runs on Windows Mobile OS (PDAs, PocketPCs, and SmartPhones); T-Mobile Dash, SDA, and MDA; Motorola Q; Palm Treo (Windows Version); and Samsung BlackJack.
 
Rory Groves, CEO of SWIFT Weather, explains the software will offer users the ability to combine multiple layers of weather data—including radar, cloud imagery, and severe weather warnings for blizzards, hurricanes, hail, wind, or tornadoes. “An audible ring-tone and display on the handheld device allows the consumer to learn first-hand of the location of the weather threat, and the estimated time of its arrival to their current location,” says Groves.
