Gran Via Venue, Barcelona, Feb 28, 2023: Saviant's long-term customer, Metron Farnier, is a Colorado-based automated advanced metering solutions provider for Utilities. Their innovative Cloud-based solution, 'Intelligent Water Management Platform for Utilities,' built by Saviant, made it to the Top 3 solutions for Best Energy & Utility solution Awards 2023 at IoT World Congress 2023 (IoTSWC23), Barcelona. The solution provides real-time visibility for water monitoring and predicting losses, leakages, or usage patterns, for water Utilities in Cities across US and Canada. This intelligent platform uses Azure PaaS, Mobile Apps & AI/ML Algorithms to enable real-time insights, allowing consumers to save money, time, stress, and most importantly water.
