IDModeling, Inc. (IDM) has announced the commercial release of Sedarū® (See Data Run), a software developed by water industry professionals to transform connectivity and communication in the industry and empower people as “the true smart water network.”

Sedarū connects water professionals to empower communication, anticipate water operations, understand impacts, and solve problems across the water utility: management, engineering, operations and water quality, maintenance and customer service. With Sedarū, analyzed data is shared in real-time for more proactive decision making.

Engineered for simple startup and scalability, Sedarū connects people and data easily with touchscreen tile-bars™ that configure to any user within minutes. In the office or in the field, it works with everyday mobile devices – laptops, tablets, and smart phones – and provides tools to the water industry that have only been available in commercial businesses until now.

Using Sedarū, water utility departments can apply institutional knowledge with shared, analyzed data. Management can monitor key performance indicators and communicate from their tablets or smart phones. Engineers can anticipate events to coordinate prioritized action for operations and CIP. Operations and maintenance can use real-time and predictive alerts, with GIS mapping to address water quality, energy, and emergency events, to and from the field. And customer service can communicate with field activity to provide informed answers to customers.

“Information is more powerful when it’s relevant, shared, and acted on,” said IDModeling Founder, President and CEO Paul Hauffen. “At IDModeling, we’ve worked in the water industry for years, and we understand the challenges of accessing and applying current information. We’ve experienced firsthand, the need for water utilities to share better data and communicate. That’s why we created Sedarū.”

In fact, the software was created for and refined by the direct input from water utilities, including the Indio Water Authority (IWA) in Indio, California. “The Sedarū software was created around Indio Water Authority’s need to operate in a connected environment,” said Brian Macy, IWA’s manager of engineering and environmental services. “Currently used by our field maintenance, operations, and engineering groups, we anticipate Sedarū’s deployment in other departments due to its advanced analytics, real-time alerts, and ability to easily configure."

“This is just the beginning,” said Hauffen. “Sedarū will yield new solutions to age-old problems in our industry with a new approach to connectivity, with communication between people and departments. Sedarū will promote efficiencies, open doors for enquiry and provide actionable answers. Innovation is our passion at IDM, and we are excited to be at the forefront of this industry opportunity.”
