Arcadis Gen launches two apps designed to help water companies plan and make better investment decisions.
The apps help address water and wastewater pipes and above-ground asset management.
Highlands Ranch, Colo., Nov. 12, 2020 - Arcadis Gen, the digital business from global design and consultancy firm Arcadis, launched two new digital products today designed for the water industry. The Water Above Ground Optimizer (WAGO) and Water Artificial Intelligence Pipe Predictor (W(AI)PP) are web-based apps built to help water utilities plan and better use their data to inform investment decisions on water and wastewater pipes and above ground assets.
“Designed specifically for the water industry, these powerful and affordable apps will make a real difference to investment planning,” said Rachel White, CEO of Arcadis Gen. “We’re focused on helping water companies across the globe deal with increasing pressure to reduce costs and improve operational efficiency.”
The Water Artificial Intelligence Pipe Predictor (W(AI)PP) uses the power of artificial intelligence and the organization’s own data to make predictions, at the individual pipe level, with highly visual dashboards and map views. W(AI)PP allows utilities to rapidly predict current and future pipe failure without the need for a data scientist. It can be used on both water and sewerage pipes and can help water utilities move away from reacting to failures on their pipes to become more proactive in their decision making.
The Water Above Ground Optimizer (WAGO) allows water utilities to predict and optimize their investment plans in any water or wastewater facility. Powered by an advanced optimization engine, the app also runs and compares a wide range of “what if” scenarios. These insights, provided by a highly visual dashboard, allow the user to drill down through the entire asset hierarchy to understand total expenses and risk, down to the individual equipment level.
“No matter what size or shape of the water company, you can now use the power of artificial intelligence and advanced analytics to help identify high-risk assets to make the right investment decision,” said Joe Roebuck, Global Water Director of Arcadis Gen.
Arcadis Gen’s vision is to positively disrupt the water sector with innovative digital products that enable organizations to make better investment decisions, leading to financial and operational success. Through their combination of engineering expertise and digital capability, Arcadis Gen is uniquely positioned to help water utilities quickly and easily get valuable insights from their data, typically seeing cost efficiencies of 20%.
