Technology Adoption, Simplified
Connecting Utilities and Technology
Doing more with less—without sacrificing quality or safety. It’s the reality that every utility faces due to tighter budgets, declining revenue, and reduced staff. And while technologies are available to achieve this goal, utilities often don’t know where to turn to find trustworthy technologies that enable more control, more efficiency and the capability to engage with customers. Meanwhile, with the fragmented nature of the water sector making technology adoption a costly and time-consuming undertaking for many technology innovators, many valuable products are never shared with the utilities that need them the most.
Introducing the FATHOM Store
The FATHOM Store is the first ever, data-rich online marketplace uniquely designed for the water sector. This revolutionary technology ecosystem enables utilities to procure technology and for technology providers to reach utilities and represents the simplest, fastest and least risky way for utilities to adopt technology to solve the challenges facing our industry.
The FATHOM Store, built upon our highly scalable, secure data integration platform, is driven from our own firsthand experience with the technology gap in water utilities. Our technology marketplace connects utilities with technology providers, creating a community that is designed to accelerate technology adoption and revolutionize how utilities get the best operational and customer engagement tools from technology providers with little or no risk. A true win-win situation.
“FATHOM is the Apple of the water industry: they now let other tech companies use their platform to ‘do smart things with water meter data’. This is a truly radical move and will provide a breakthrough in the rate at which smart technologies are launched and greatly increase their chances of success.”
–Piers Clark, chairman of Isle Group and former commercial director at Thames Water
