Jerusalem water corporation Hagihon has extended its agreement with TaKaDu, a global leader in Integrated Event Management solutions, for another three years. Hagihon has been using TaKaDu as its main tool for water loss reduction since 2010, with significant cost savings. Providing greater network visibility, Hagihon has been able to respond faster to every type of event, including hidden leaks.
Dani Gombosh, Deputy CEO, for Water, Hagihon, said, “We’re implemented TaKaDu across the entire metropolitan area of Jerusalem, giving us actionable insights. For example, the TaKaDu system recently detected a leak in a specific area of the city. We quickly understood that it was in a private household and immediately alerted the customer, preventing further damage and an increased water bill.” Gombosh continued, “TaKaDu enables us to focus on events which are more important or have the most impact on our water system. Sharing and cross-referencing events across departments helps us to improve operational efficiency across the board, from customer service to repair maintenance and asset management.”
TaKaDu’s automated cloud-based service enables utilities to detect, analyze and manage network events and incidents such as leaks, bursts, faulty assets, telemetry and data issues, operational failures, and more.
“We’re delighted that TaKaDu’s first customer worldwide, Hagihon, is extending its agreement. The contract renewal represents an important endorsement of TaKaDu’s technology and the positive impact our solution continues to have on Hagihon’s water network management.” said Udi Geismar, VP Customer Success, TaKaDu.
