We help people and their assets to Arrive Safely.
We focus on helping individuals and companies manage weather-related transportation risk. These may be personal risks (e.g., taking a cross-country trip with the family) or business endeavors (e.g., ensuring that your fleet arrives on time and without unnecessary delays). Providing proactive and actionable forecasting of changing weather conditions is our constant focus.
To achieve our mission, we remain firmly grounded in our core values. Chief amongst these is to help people.
We strive to help people improve their lives.
We treat every customer like a mentor. We never think we know better than the customer.
This mindset is pervasive throughout our company and is what sets us apart from other companies related to our space. Don't believe us? Check out our public responses to app reviews since 2013 and compare with what you see elsewhere.
If you find examples where we have failed, let us know and help us improve! Become a new mentor for us.
Our mission began in 2012 as a personal project of one of the founders, Devan Stormont, after deciding to cancel a holiday trip to visit the extended family for the sake of safety. Unsatisfied with the state of the art for weather forecasting travel, he built the first iteration of what would later become Highway Weather. Originally incubated within Voyage Studios LLC, the app came to see broader adoption by a variety of users.
Today, the app has grown into the Weather Route ecosystem. We provide services to end users, logistics businesses, and government. Some of these services are apps (public and private) and some are technologies we provide to help other organizations grow.
We are headquartered in Reno, Nevada. For members of the media, find our press kit here.
As a co-founder at Weather Route, Devan is laser-focused on innovation and providing better experiences every day.
He is devoted to understanding the problems that people face and building solutions to resolve them. With two decades of experience building impactful tools across industries as diverse as manufacturing, althetics, and finance, he approaches every new problem as an opportunity to learn about the nuances of different customer needs. Whether that is building a new mobile feature, leveraging data and machine learning to solve a problem, or spending time discussing an issue or idea with a customer, every avenue has value for exploration.
When Devan isn’t busy brainstorming or building new ideas, you’ll find him salsa dancing, consuming information about anything and everything, and putting himself in an endless state of wonder by exploring the world.
Alex is a self-described “champion of the customer”. As Weather Route’s co-founder and COO/CXO, he is simultaneously committed to relentless operational progress within the company and to always, always doing what’s best for the customer.
Since studying Business and Psychology at the University of Nevada, Reno, he has spent over a decade in the tech industry helping to develop businesses and build/scale customer-facing teams. At Weather Route, he combines this experience with his passion for the idea that people deserve proactive and actionable weather data.
When Alex isn’t translating customer experiences into product improvements, you’ll find him road biking, playing guitar, or doing his best to learn more about the world through travel.
