Company Leaders Forge Alliance to Enhance Global Community Safety

GEO Jobe, a Geographic Information System (GIS) software and geospatial solutions provider based in Gulfport, Miss., is announcing a new partnership with Baron Weather, a weather technology company out of Huntsville, Ala. The collaboration emerged from both organizations’ desire to take customer service to the next level by offering clients access to geospatial and weather-related resources, data, and technologies they might not otherwise have discovered.

Both tech companies are partners in the Esri Partner Network (EPN), a global ecosystem of organizations established to help users around the world utilize the benefits of Esri's ArcGIS software, location intelligence solutions, and mapping tools. GEO Jobe has been designing software for ArcGIS users for more than two decades and just last year advanced to Platinum Partner status within the EPN, representing its high level of alignment with the global industry leader.
