Haifa and Yehud, Israel (PRWEB) April 04, 2016
Mei Carmel, Haifa’s water utility company, has selected TaKaDu’s Integrated Event Management software solution for improving its network efficiency and management. Mei Carmel will be leveraging TaKaDu’s IoT cloud-based solution to offer greater visibility and insights into network events, such as leaks, bursts, changes in water pressure or faulty assets.
Stav Avraham, COO of Mei Carmel, said, “Although we’re proud of our low water loss levels, we understand the value of harnessing data to gain further insights into events taking place in the network. TaKaDu will enable us to monitor our network automatically and provide early detection of ‘incidents’ without being dependent on manual feedback from the field. That means smarter decision-making and a faster response time to potential incidents, maintaining customers’ satisfaction with our service.”
Based on big data analytics and sophisticated algorithms TaKaDu’s Integrated Event Management Platform offers in-depth visibility and quick insights into multiple types of events. TaKaDu provides many benefits, including reduced leakages and supply interruptions, improved data integrity, and KPI measurements. A cloud-based SaaS platform, TaKaDu brings together vast amounts of information in an easy-to-use, flexible and scalable solution.
Amir Peleg, Founder & CEO of TaKaDu, said, “Mei Carmel is one of the most technologically advanced utilities in Israel and we’re delighted that we can leverage our experience in utilities around the world to help companies closer to home improve their network performance. We actually see ourselves as ‘high-tech plumbers’, helping to save critical natural resources. This is particularly relevant in Israel where water is such an important commodity.”
