PHOENIX – June 16, 2014 – FATHOM (Global Water Management, LLC) and Cityworks (Azteca Systems Inc.) announced today that they are expanding the long‐term, strategic technology partnership between the two organizations. Through this partnership, both Cityworks and FATHOM will work collaboratively to develop a Software as a Service (“SaaS”) cloud‐based geospatial work order system delivered within the FATHOM platform. This platform, made available through a SaaS delivery model, will expand the accessibility of robust work order management functionality on an as needed basis to the small and midsize utility markets, allowing for the incremental adoption of data rich utility practices.
“Historically, advanced technologies in the water sector have been reserved for those utilities with large budgets and large IT departments,” said Brian Haslam, President and CEO of Cityworks. “Both FATHOM and Cityworks have been independently working toward breaking that barrier to allow smaller utilities to benefit from the same technology across different customer and client verticals. This partnership will not only allow our technologies to be more accessible to those smaller utilities but also provide them the flexibility to adopt just those features they need, knowing that they can activate additional features and functionality as they go.”
“We have been long‐time partners with Cityworks, beginning first as a utility customer and then as a licensed provider of their software,” stated Trevor Hill, Chief Executive Officer of FATHOM, “and we are excited to further advance our partnership. This opportunity to bring our two platformstogether in the cloud unlocksthe true potential of technology. By combining the power of the data and advanced analytics of FATHOM with the work order management capabilities of Cityworks to turn that data into action, utilities will be able to realize increased efficiencies, decreased costs and increased revenues.”
Developed by a water and wastewater utility, FATHOM is an integrated suite of advanced technologies proven to increase revenue, decrease costs and bring heightened efficiencies to water utilities. 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. Through our integrated, geospatial platforms – FATHOM CIS, FATHOM U2You with FATHOM Mobile, FATHOM MDM and FATHOM AMS – utilities and their customers have the information they need and want at their fingertips. With over 3.75 million meters on FATHOM, there is strength in numbers.
