AccuWeather Tornado, Thunderstorm, Lightning, Hail and High Wind Warnings

In one weather emergency after another, AccuWeather has delivered the first – and often the only – warning of life-threatening emergencies and impending severe weather.

AccuWeather warnings  – specific to your site and customized to your criteria  – have repeatedly been shown to be the most accurate and timely in providing critical advance warning of tornadoes, thunderstorms, lightning, hail, and high winds.

For one Fortune 100 client, AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions provided, on average, 24.6 minutes of lead time for tornadoes. National Weather Service (NWS) warnings averaged only 12.0 minutes of lead time. AccuWeather provided double the amount of time to prepare.

Null Tornado Notifications Save the Cost of Unnecessary Shutdowns

Null Tornado Notifications are among the biggest benefits of the AccuWeather warning service. We send you a Null Tornado Notificiation when the NWS has issued a warning for your county, but the tornado is located or traveling in a direction that will not affect your facility or operations. These notifications improve the credibility of your organizations warning system by greatly reducing false alarms and "over warning" for too many events.

AccuWeather Enterprise Solutions is the only commercial supplier of Null Tornado Notifications!

AccuWeather null notifications have been proven to provide the information enterprises need to avoid unnecessary shutdown or disruption of operations. Consider:

The average false alarm rate from NWS tornado warnings is about 80%, according to an NWS study. AccuWeather tornado warnings have about a 10% false alarm rate.
For a global manufacturing company with 500 locations, relying on AccuWeather resulted in a 94% reduction in false alarms. That in turn saved 402 hours of lost production time over a two-year period, worth $20,122,500 for the client.

Extreme Temperature Warnings Provide Insight for Key Business Decisions

​Are your shipments at risk when temperatures drop below freezing somewhere along the route?

Is structural deformation or brittleness of materials a concern when temperatures exceed 100º F or drop below 0º F?

Does extreme heat or biting wind chill pose a concern for the safety of employees working outdoors, students, or guests at your park or venue?

AccuWeather assists organizations of all types to prepare for the effects of extreme temperatures through proactive monitoring and customized notification of the specific temperatures, humidity, heat index, wind chill and other related weather factors that affect your operations or clientele.

GAP – REINSURANCE

GAP - Reinsurance is relatively identical to GAP coverage with the only difference being that the producer (dealer) takes the risk through an off-shore reinsurance company.  The insurer would either cede premium directly to the dealer captive (very large producer) or cede to Auto Trac System’s captive and the profits would be retro-ceded into the dealer’s captive.
Most dealerships reinsure their VSC programs and have become comfortable with this set-up. Reinsuring GAP allows us to compete with all other GAP underwriters.
Reinsurance GAP changes the dynamic for all parties by moving the dealership into a partnership with the underwriter.  It keeps our relationships in place for longer periods of time.
Provided through Auto Trac System and insured by AM Best’s rated A- (or better) insurance company, coverage is available on all retail finance contracts, including both new and used vehicles for franchised and non-franchised dealerships.
