GUTERMANN and TaKaDu combine data-driven technologies for heightened water efficiency

TaKaDu, a global leader in Integrated Event Management solutions for the water industry, and GUTERMANN, a world leader in acoustic leak detection technology, are teaming up to deliver a comprehensive data-driven solution for improving efficiency. TaKaDu’s platform is being seamlessly integrated with GUTERMANN’s fixed network leak detection technology, leveraging on TaKaDu’s ability to integrate network events from external systems as well as from its own analytics engine.

For joint customers, TaKaDu’s Integrated Event Management platform can act as the central layer for all network events detected by both systems. Receiving alerts from two different sources will increase operational confidence about each event, save time and provide information for better decision making – enabling operational teams to validate and find the location of leaks more easily.

“With our constant focus on innovation, we strive to provide utilities with the best possible tools for efficient non-revenue water reduction. Our collaboration with TaKaDu is therefore another stepping stone in GUTERMANN’s strategy to make water leakage a central theme for utility managers and to facilitate a more transparent and holistic view on leaks and pipe bursts and how they are handled,” Uri Gutermann, Head of Business Development & CFO, GUTERMANN, said. “Combining the automatically correlated and pinpointed leak locations from our acoustic sensor network with TaKaDu’s big data analytics and event management offers joint customers the most reliable, precise and comprehensive solution for network management.”

“We’re delighted to collaborate with GUTERMANN, which provides a critical data source and event detection for leakage events. Our combined solution is showing excellent results at Mei Carmel in Haifa, Israel, and we’re also seeing huge potential worldwide,” Amir Peleg, Founder and CEO, TaKaDu, added. “TaKaDu’s customers already integrate events from a variety of sources such as call centres for consumer reports and work order systems for predictive maintenance and repair activities. This latest integration with GUTERMANN strengthens the capability of users to manage events even better, helps to break silos, and also improves collaboration between the back office and field teams.”
