data consolidation

Water utilities make substantial investments in data systems that run their operations. Unfortunately these systems often don’t share information, creating data silos that leave various departments without a holistic view of operations or customer behavior. Integrating these disparate data systems is critical to generating actionable insights that can drive down costs and improve operational efficiency.

integration-as-a-service

The WaterSmart engagement platform sits on top of existing operational systems including meter management, customer information, enterprise resource planning, work order management, rebate tracking, SCADA, and others. Leveraging standardized integration protocols, WaterSmart offers bi-directional data exchanges between previously siloed systems which result in vastly improved cross-system data insights.

fast-track onboarding

Rapid solution deployment is critical to demonstrating value to our utility partners. We have designed a comprehensive implementation process to gather the necessary data inputs and quickly launch the WaterSmart platform. This allows our customers and their end-users to immediately see the benefits of our award winning customer self-service platform. We have a 100% launch success rate to back it up!
