?Information is more powerful when it?s relevant, shared and acted on,? said IDModeling founder, president and CEO Paul Hauffen. ?At IDModeling, we?ve worked in the water industry for years, and we understand the challenges of accessing and applying current information. We?ve experienced firsthand, the need for water utilities to share better data and communicate. That?s why we created Sedaru?? .?

In fact, the software was created for and refined by the direct input from water utilities, including the Indio Water Authority (IWA) in Indio, Calif. ?The Sedaru?? u software was created around Indio Water Authority?s need to operate in a connected environment,? said Brian Macy, IWA?s manager of engineering and environmental services. ?Currently used by our field maintenance, operations and engineering groups, we anticipate Sedaru? ?s deployment in other departments due to its advanced analytics, real-time alerts and ability to easily configure.?
