Improved operational efficiency from one system

Data is important in any industry, but it is a critical element of modern water management. Data exists across all utilities but the amount and quality of the data can vary. This can happen for many reasons: quite often a number of people — or even a number of divisions — are maintaining offline copies of critical data, in isolation, with a significant amount of human effort. Rarely are any two sources the same and it is impossible to determine which source is more correct.

Another common scenario is a number of custom, in-house apps built to manage a subset of data. This again leads to multiple copies of inaccurate data in addition to a mounting maintenance bill in order to carry out upkeep of these apps.

The Klir dashboard allows utilities to better quantify and mitigate true risks to the environment and human health.

Klir began with a focus on providing services to regulators and utilities. Through many years of working closely with both parties, an intimate understanding of the environmental and compliance challenges faced by water utilities was developed. Using these insights, and through many meetings across the U.S., Klir came to a conclusion: across all levels in a utility, people need to be assisted. They need a better way to manage compliance and regulations.

Klir is a one-stop shop for all urban wastewater and drinking water information that allows utilities to better quantify and mitigate true risks to the environment and human health.

The Klir Platform starts with a focus on service, where a team of product specialists takes the time to understand the challenges faced across an organization and to really understand its processes. From here, Klir works to obtain one copy of data that everyone can agree is the most accurate available.

Klir allows users to track all individual conditions and requirements, assign them to a user or division and track their progress until completion, all in one place.

Klir provides improved operational efficiency by allowing team members to manage their tasks and communicate across the entire organization from one system. People from different departments can work together from a single point and notify each other of pending tasks. Informed decisions can be made quicker and easier through analyzing trends in data or by using Klir’s predictive analytics to proactively manage potential compliance issues. In doing so, Klir reduces the chance of receiving fines from the regulator, gives time back to all staff members and transforms your organization from having several disparate systems to having a consolidated platform that gives you visibility across the entire organization.

Additionally, Klir provides legal certainty by allowing users to track all individual conditions and requirements, assign them to a user or division and track their progress until completion. Klir sits on top of a complex rules engine that has been developed to include international, federal, state, county and city rules. It automatically flags a non-compliance issue and suggests the corrective action that should be taken, ensuring you remain compliant and that your hard-earned brand remains intact. WW
