i2O, the smart water network solutions company, announced today that it has doubled the size of its software development team in the past 12 months to ensure water utility clients can derive maximum value and insight about their networks.
During 2016 i2O hired ten new software developers, taking the number based at its Southampton headquarters to 20. The new recruits include skilled mobile, cloud and ‘big data’ engineers with experience in the aerospace, utilities, media and security industries.
The expanded software team is led by Michael Saunders, i2O’s Head of Software Development, and will focus on the continuous enhancement of its cloud-based platform, as well as developing analytics to provide water utilities with more actionable insight on their water network performance collected from permanently deployed loggers.
Joel Hagan, CEO of i2O, comments: “We are striving constantly to develop new functionality that helps water utilities meet the challenges caused by population growth, more frequent extreme weather events and increasingly demanding customers. The talent and capacity we now have in the business will help us deliver greater functionality at pace and maximise the environmental, financial and customer service value that can be achieved through smart water networks.”
