i2O collaborates with Badger Software to extend its suite of smart network solutions

i2O is pleased to announce that its new event management solution eNet will be powered by Badger Software’s CLIO product.

Badger (002)eNet enables water companies to manage events that lead to loss of, or disruption to, water supply. It:

  • Ensures that relevant information is easy to access
  • Keeps everyone up-to-date in every location with every action undertaken, decision made, and the rationale for each decision
  • Enables post-event review to be undertaken efficiently

In this way:

  • Less water is lost/less pollution occurs
  • Fewer customers are affected and for less time
  • Fewer penalties are imposed
  • Less damage occurs to reputation

eNet will in due course be more closely integrated with i2O’s suite of smart network solutions:

  • iNet, the network monitoring and analytics solution, which can identify events
  • oNet, the advanced pressure management solution, which can enable remote control and automatic optimisation of pressure in the network

Badger Software is the UK’s leading supplier of Critical Incident Management software. Originally developed to help police forces manage spontaneous incidents and civil emergencies as well as covert operations, Badger’s client list now includes manufacturers, retailers, and other government departments. The system is tried and tested, robust, and easy to use.

Joel Hagan, i2O CEO commented: ‘We are delighted to have found best-in-class software that can help us quickly extend our suite of smart network solutions. Badger has been a delight to work with. Water companies have significant challenges but no more money to deal with them and they need cost-effective ways to identify, diagnose and resolve incidents that affect their ability to supply water to their customers.’

Rob Brigham, Badger Software’s CEO commented: ‘i2O is a global leader in smart network solutions and helps us to penetrate a new market more quickly by ensuring that our product is tailored to the needs of water companies and leverages the power of their existing solutions.’
