UK drinking water today is world-class and the environment is much cleaner than when the industry was privatised two decades ago. But whilst huge progress has been made, significant challenges remain:
Ofwat is clear: “Simply relying on the solutions of the past will not be enough to contribute to deliver the services of the future.”
As reform of the UK Water sector proceeds the need to anchor operational data to a geographic location becomes even more critical. From regulatory reporting and predicting risks to reducing leakage and empowering the call centre, decisions become better informed. Knowledge becomes more usable, more accessible and more understandable. Advanced GIS simply and effectively unlocks the full potential of existing data by making operationally valuable intelligence available to more people when and where it’s needed most.
It all adds up to the power to both boost performance and move you up the Ofwat league tables.
