Platform turns disparate data into real-time information for the water industry
Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire – June 20, 2016 — Meniscus, an analytics software company that provides high-performing, flexible and scalable cloud-based tools for the development of bespoke applications, today announced a new partnership with FATHOM Water Management, Inc. (“FATHOM”). Meniscus will offer its proprietary analytics platform MAP through the FATHOM Store, an online marketplace designed to enable simple, fast and risk-free adoption of new technologies for water utilities.
With MAP, customers can:
- Monitor chemical costs, use, and optimization
- Monitor process based energy costs, use, and optimization
- Integrate real-time rainfall data into the organization
Mike Everest, managing director of Meniscus, commented, “As a cloud-based service delivering process-based energy, chemical, and weather based analytics services, working with FATHOM is key for us. First, it provides access to data stored on the FATHOM cloud servers, which simplifies the delivery of our services, and secondly, it provides exposure to many water companies in the U.S. We look forward to the opening of the FATHOM Store to help accelerate the adoption of our platform by water utilities across the country.”
The FATHOM Store is a simple, secure data integration platform that connects water utilities with technologies that help streamline business processes, recover revenue and better engage with customers. FATHOM’s expert team thoroughly vets each product submitted for consideration to the Store and selects only the top-performing tools like MAP for inclusion. Through open application program interfaces (APIs), technology companies can exchange data with FATHOM, as well as utilities, to deliver maximum value.
Utilities can now easily access and acquire MAP without the risks common to technology adoption.
“Nationwide, more than 56,000 water systems are searching for technologies that can help them make the most efficient use of ever-dwindling resources. Unfortunately, finding, vetting and integrating new technologies demands a level of investment most cannot afford to make – until now,” said Trevor Hill, CEO of FATHOM. “Through the FATHOM Store, we are connecting technology innovators, like Meniscus, directly to the utilities that need their support most. By mitigating the time and financial commitment required to modernize water utilities’ processes, we are propelling the Smart Grid for Water into reality.”
The FATHOM Store is available at https://store.gwfathom.com.
The vision behind Meniscus of turning raw data into valuable information was the idea of Managing Director Mike Everest. Meniscus ensures use of all the data collected to identify problems early and to help businesses operate more efficiently and at lower cost, and so the idea of automatically calculating performance metrics from operational data was born.
