During the IBM Think 2018 conference in Las Vegas, IBM named LPA Software Solutions, a Platinum IBM Business Partner, as a Beacon Award Finalist for Outstanding Weather Analytics Solution. This award recognizes LPA as an outstanding business partner who delivered one of the most effective and innovative weather-based analytics solutions to help its client make better decisions.

LPA worked with the IBM Weather Company to provide real-time storm related information using IBM Operations Dashboard Software-as-a-Service, to precisely view microclimates and severe weather events. The solution included new personal weather stations -- Internet of Things (IoT) devices -- providing real-time weather condition information to field personnel. LPA plans to implement predictive models using weather data to continuously improve field operations.
