mobile weather alertingValue-added services in your mobile apps are a great way to distinguish your product line. With road weather alerts from Baron, you can use developer-friendly tools to build custom notifications for drivers, alerting them to inclement conditions on the road ahead. As a result, motorists are safer. And customers are more satisfied with your brand.



Custom Notifications

There’s really no limit to the notifications you create; the flexibility of the tools enable use cases as diverse as alerting drivers to dangerous weather and road conditions, or suggesting they warm up the car early on a particularly frigid morning.

Your Weather, Your Way

There are two ways to integrate mobile alerting into your apps. The Baron Pinpoint Alerting SDK (Software Development Kit) provides predictive alert capability out of the box, with easy-to-integrate code that plugs in to your existing software.

The Baron Weather API provides even more flexibility. Its REST architecture and extensive documentation make integration straightforward. But whichever route you take, we’ll support you with dedicated onboard personnel who can advise on the customization needed to meet any project requirements.
