Austin, Texas—Nov. 6, 2013—Stormpulse, Inc., a weather intelligence company, announced it expanded its focus beyond the tracking of weather-related business threats with the launch of Riskpulse, a risk management solution. Riskpulse gathers, elevates and visualizes external risk data into one easy-to-use platform, empowering business users to adjust to changing conditions quickly and make timely, critical decisions.
The comprehensive risk management solution enables businesses to locate, quantify and adapt to external risks, such as earthquakes, crime and travel alerts. With real-time tracking, businesses can visualize their moving assets in relation to threats in a consumable map format. Riskpulse interprets and identifies the most pressing issues, and quantifies the data with a unique risk score. The platform is entirely customized to a business’s unique profile and emphasizes the opportunities created by uncontrollable events.
“After seven years of focusing on weather, we recognized that there are many other external factors that affect a company’s supply chain and daily operations,” said Matt Wensing, Stormpulse co-founder and chief executive officer. “We created Riskpulse to help companies struggling with the ‘big data’ problem of finding meaning in the numbers. By giving them a simple platform to visualize and interpret the world’s most threatening data in relationship to the things they care about, they can make smart decisions and uncover new opportunities.”
The Riskpulse Ecosystem of Products
- Pulse API enables companies to merge data that was aggregated and interpreted by Riskpulse with their existing systems. The application program interface (API) offers dozens of layers of environmental, risk and weather data with a real-time risk score for each asset location.
- Pulse OS offers the ability to build a custom application using Riskpulse data, maps, asset and communication APIs. Companies can customize the Riskpulse platform and include it as part of their service, giving them a competitive edge without investing in the development of a mapping and data platform, according to the company.
- Cygnus, a turnkey web application, integrates maps, assets and environmental data to help companies visualize and respond to external risks. Risk managers and business continuity professionals use it to have one clear view of their organization and real-world data.
The Riskpulse ecosystem of products are expected be available in December 2013. Stormpulse.com remains live as a standalone weather tracker.
