Why WaSHMIS

40%

Water scarcity affects more than 40 percent of people around the world, an alarming figure that is projected to increase with the rise of global temperatures as a result of climate change.

SDG 6

Ensuring universal access to safe and affordable drinking water by 2030 requires we invest in adequate infrastructure, ensure efficiency of investments and protect and restore water resources.

Online decision support systems

To achieve Sustainable Development Goals No. 6, monitoring of water supply must be linked to surveillance systems that provide a continuous online decision support data-based system

As water and sanitation utility, you have a lot on your plate. Not only are you required to provide reliable and affordable water and sanitation services, but you must also be compliant with regulatory standards and ensure that your operations are sustainable. Additionally, you have to contend with the following challenges;
  • Managing a large network of geographically distributed assets
  • Inadequate and time-delayed data management systems
  • Lack of data integration between different information systems and business units
  • High water losses
  • Aging water infrastructure
  • Limited channels of financing
  • Manual job assignment and poor or no follow up.
  • Outdated customer database
  • The need to continually raise the bar of customer service quality
Innovative smart approaches to utility management – focused largely on automation, real-time view of hydraulic data and better data management – offer transformative capabilities to analyze, automate, correct in real time, predict and minimize risks. They have the power to help water and wastewater utilities address many of the challenges they face, including extending the life of aging assets, reducing leakages, attacks or other abnormalities in the distribution network, improving water quality monitoring, service levels and reliability of supply, promoting water conservation, or increasing revenue through operational efficiencies.

An integrated system consisting of sensors to acquire and transmit data, server based processing and storage of data and a web portal facilitating visualization of data streams in real time forms an ideal online decision support system for water utilities.

WaSHMIS, Turning Water Data into Insights

What is WaSHMIS

Water Sanitation Hygiene Management Information System (WaSHMIS) is an integrated system that enables water utilities to make smart data-driven decisions by collecting, transmitting, analyzing and visualizing hydraulic data (flow, pressure, and level), water quality data (chlorine and PH) and customer data from sensors deployed across the water distribution system.
Building blocks of WaSHMIS include;
WaSHMIS Collect App

WaSHMIS Collect App

A smartphone based app that is used for collection of water and sanitation data such as service area, housing, customer, connection and meter details. Some common uses include Project surveys, Customer identification and satisfaction surveys
DASHBOARD MODULE

DASHBOARD MODULE

Water levels,volumes, flows, pressure, pH and chlorine at targeted points within the network are visually displayed on a dashboard with dynamic interactive charts that enable the user to determine water parameters that is of interest to them e.g Minimum Night flows, average daily consumption and average day pressures.
GIS MODULE

GIS MODULE

GIS data on Open Source infrastructure cloud-based SDI infrastructure is collected through a smartphone, updated and managed through a browser and analyzed on a desktop GIS (QGIS or ArcGIS). GIS data is based on WASPA/KEWI/KEWASCO standardized template
ERP MODULE

ERP MODULE

We integrate your billing tool for NRW calculations or we provide you with an ERP including HR, CRM, accounts, etc.

WATER BALANCE MODULE

WATER BALANCE MODULE

NRW Calculations at zone and DMA level is done and displayed on a service area dashboard
Job Card App

Job Card App

A smartphone-based job card app for assigning and tracking tasks within the water utility; among them jobs emanating from utility operations and customer complaints. The web overview gives the percentage and turnaround times for job categories. Fieldwork documented electronically equals accurate data and higher labour productivity.
ALERTS MODULE

ALERTS MODULE

SMS/Email alerts are generated and sent to the technical team when pre-defined level, volume (leakages), flow or pressure thresholds are exceeded or not met.
ASSET MANAGEMENT MODULE

ASSET MANAGEMENT MODULE

The lifespan of your assets goes up with planned, preventative maintenance. Our module helps you do just that, including alerts, performance tracking, etc.
