It's never too early to get started.

Let Baseform handle your data so that you concentrate on the results.

Data is increasingly a central piece in a water utility or any other business in the 21st century. But it should not draw attention away from the real business outcomes. After all, 100% of the utility's effort should be applied to delivering the service at the desired level, making sure it is efficient and sustainable in the long run, and keeping risks in check. However, due to the way data systems have developed in the utilities, data often becomes an end in itself, distracting from the actual end goal. We often hear utilities remark that they would love to be able to do district metering or failure prediction, but only "when we have proper data" or "only when we have the people/ resources to process the data", or a comparable deferring thought. This does not seem to be compatible with the mandatory need to make the best decisions, today.

Focusing on results and using available data is the answer Baseform's Data Sync technology ensures that all of your available data – even if limited, faulty, incomplete – is mutually compatible, validated and enriched with our own Big Data; above all, usable. Baseform is today used by a large number of utilities of all sizes and levels of sophistication. One thing they have in common is that they leverage whatever data they have available, and Baseform's Data Sync technology, in order to base their critical decisions on facts – their data. You don't need much to:

(1) optimize your meter management: your billing data and customer meter database are all it takes.

(2) do you have one network flow meter (or more)? Start monitoring your network, detecting events and increasing the accuracy and availability of your water balance calculations.

(3) do you have a pipe/sewer GIS (or failing that, CAD drawings or similar) and a work order or inspections history? Start using our predictive algorithms to get a grasp on pipe break rate or sewer condition, and predict much more reliably how they deteriorate, so that you can optimize their renewal and squeeze the best value from your available CAPEX.

Waiting for perfect data only means giving up the value of your current data – and what our users tell us is that they wouldn't dream of giving that up now. Let Baseform handle your data so that you concentrate on the results.
