La Cumbre Mutual Water Company Selects Sedaru to Modernize Operations & Data Analytics
ARCADIA, CALIFORNIA, November 20, 2014 – Sedaru, the industry-leading smart water enterprise platform, has been selected by the La Cumbre Mutual Water Company (La Cumbre), CA. The industry’s real-time solution to connect organizational data, systems, and people across the water enterprise, Sedaru leverages proven hydraulic, asset and operational management analytics so utilities can anticipate water operations, understand impacts and solve problems for energy, quality, water resource, and asset management initiatives.
La Cumbre was formed in 1925 to serve water to land owners in the area between the cities of Santa Barbara and Goleta. La Cumbre identified a need to modernize their data systems and workflows to minimize data loss, reduce time spent by staff receiving and interpreting data from static, disparate, and disconnected data sources, and improve data reporting, trending and visual presentation, so staff can be prompted by notifications to make informed decisions and take action. To achieve these goals, La Cumbre selected Sedaru to help develop their water system GIS and then establish Sedaru as the platform that connects all water groups.
Sedaru Will Revolutionize Operations, Analytics & Communications at La Cumbre
La Cumbre recognized the myriad benefits of migrating from stand-alone drawings to an integrated, GIS-centric operations and asset management platform. The first step of the project involves creating an Esri-based GIS, then rolling out Sedaru to support La Cumbre’s enterprise operational needs.
La Cumbre needed real-time data entry using lightweight mobile devices in the field, GIS-based mapping, and an office-based operating platform to record operations and maintenance data for monitoring, response, and analytics for risk-based decision making.
“We’re very excited about leveraging the power of Sedaru to help optimize our water system operations,” said Jeff Dameron, Administrative Manager for La Cumbre Mutual Water Company. “Like all other California utilities, we are currently operating under a drought State of Emergency. The Sedaru smart water platform perfectly complements our goals of delivering high-quality, cost-effective water and service while helping us pinpoint and mitigate sources of water loss.”
With Sedaru deployed, La Cumbre will have the information that they need at their fingertips to make informed, prioritize decisions within a real-time, connected and communicating platform.
“We are very pleased to partner with La Cumbre to streamline their access to mission critical system data,” said Mr. Kevin Koshko, Sedaru Product Director. “La Cumbre has recognized the tremendous benefits that Sedaru offers to utilities of all sizes, and we’re excited to get them up and running with a practical, cost-effective smart water network.”
