California-based Trimble is taking its IoT remote monitoring hardware, sensors and analytics software for water and wastewater to the global market.
 
This geographic expansion enables water organisations around the world to benefit from a platform of hardware and software that can be used to monitor, analyse and maintain water, wastewater and stormwater networks wirelessly.
 
Trimble's range of digital water products are used by thousands of water, wastewater and stormwater management utilities and private contractors throughout North America. They help utilities improve drinking water quality, lower water loss and leakage, reduce wastewater and stormwater overflows and spills, and enhance regulatory compliance. By growing its network of business partners and resellers, Trimble is expanding its reach to provide international sales and support backed by Trimble's team of water experts.
 
Trimble Unity software and Telog family of IoT remote monitoring hardware provide water organisations with a single modern digital platform for proactive wireless monitoring, asset and work management. They help utilities enhance asset performance by putting real-time information at the centre of utility operations, improving efficiency and safety through actionable intelligence. Applications include non-revenue water, sewer flow and level management, water quality and resource monitoring.
 
"Water and wastewater utilities throughout the world are faced with the challenge of reducing water losses and the environmental impacts associated with aging, failing infrastructure," said Alain Samaha, vice president at Trimble. "Expanding our geographic footprint to offer our digital water solutions globally will enable more utilities to leverage Trimble's proven technology to gain deeper insights and help solve their asset management and operations challenges."
 
Trimble's water division focuses on solving key problems that water, wastewater and stormwater utilities face as their infrastructure ages; droughts, flooding and other environmental issues increase; and customer needs grow. The products combine positioning devices, IoT sensors and communication technologies with enterprise, mobile and cloud software and analytics to provide utilities with a digital view and analysis of their networks. Utilities can assess, monitor, inspect and manage their network in real time, saving costs, reducing water loss, enhancing asset performance and improving regulatory compliance and customer service.
