Schneider Electric’s Aquis 7.0 improves control of water distribution networks and includes accelerated performance, faster load times, extended system log facilities, enhanced find functionality, improved user experience and collaborative engineering enhancements. Aquis reduces operation and energy costs associated with water distribution activities by providing operators with information about the forecasted behavior of their water networks - adding intelligence to water network management - helping to reduce the impact of unplanned events before they happen.
A new suite of software solutions from GE uses the Predix™ operating system to address aging infrastructure, manpower constraints, water conservation and other challenges. In collaboration with American Water and MWH Global (now part of Stantec), the software addresses pipeline health, storm and sewer management, and water plant efficiency. The company’s SaaS proof of concept digitally maps total pipeline health and provides proactive risk identification. Additional software will utilize level sensors and mapping to enable faster reactive maintenance and increased proactive maintenance to reduce overflow frequency and number. GE’s InSight™ asset performance management solution optimizes water treatment plant assets and operations.
The Itron mobile solution is a data collection and field asset management solution that allows utilities to use the Itron mobile app on the device of their choice for automated meter reading and manual data collection. Capabilities include the ability to capture photographs as a part of the meter-reading process and utilize cloud-based maps on all devices to display route and meter data. Meter readers can always be connected, which allows supervisors to manage their mobile workforce remotely and easily reassign work. Accurate data collection ensures accurate bills and satisfied customers, while audible and vibration warnings alert employees of hazards.
Clevest’s latest version of its Mobile Workforce Management solution for utilities, version 5.3, includes smartphone capabilities in the company’s award-winning WorkBook mobile app, allowing Clevest to provide its software solutions on all types of devices on Windows, iOS or Android operating systems.
