Information management

The Hach Water Information Management Solution (Hach WIMS™) provides a set of scalable products that collect, incorporate, and analyze data and communicate information easily. These products offer an affordable choice versus custom developed applications and a alternative to manual processes. Designed specifically for drinking water and wastewater utilities of any size, the system aggregates independent sources of data, such as laboratory data (LIMS, commercial labs, or lab bench sheets), SCADA, and utility specific Excel spreadsheets, into a single data repository.
