PHOENIX – August 18, 2014 – Global Water Management, LLC (“FATHOM”) announced today that it has contracted with Cucamonga Valley Water District (“CVWD” or “District”) in Rancho Cucamonga, California, to utilize the FATHOM Meter Data Management (“MDM”) platform. With an advanced metering infrastructure (“AMI”) installation, a manual read system in place, and plans to complete deployment of the AMI system to 100% of the District’s water accounts, FATHOM will provide the District the ability to manage these systems and data through a single portal. With FATHOM and its ability to combine the data from multiple meter reading technologies and manufacturers, the District will be able to increase efficiencies, maximize the value of the data collected, and ultimately provide a higher level of customer service.
“The FATHOM platform will allow us to manage and operate our entire AMI system while we complete deployment of the AMI throughout our service area,” stated Oscar Gonzalez, President of the CVWD Board of Directors. “Through working with FATHOM, we felt that they understand firsthand the challenges we face. Both CVWD and our customers will benefit from the experience of FATHOM and their robust MDM platform.”
Mr. Trevor Hill, Chief Executive Officer of FATHOM stated, “We are excited about our partnership with the District. The migration between different meter reading technologies can be a difficult transition, as meter reads are the foundation of revenue within a utility. FATHOM simplifies the migration pathway by combining the data from the various meter reading technologies into a single database and allowing systems to proceed unaffected by changes in the meter reading system. This not only provides flexibility in the deployment timeframe but also the ability to be selective about deployment areas and rates. With FATHOM in place, the District will not only be able to manage their existing AMIsystems but will be able to easily transition the remaining manual read meters to AMI without disrupting their billing operation or other systems tied to the meter reads.”

Our proven, rapidly deployable, highly scalable, cloud‐based, Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions are changing the way utilities acquire, analyze and use data to optimize operations and improve customer service.
