TaKaDuannounced that system integrator Matchpoint, specializing in leak detection solutions, has been appointed as a distributor in the North American region.

XZcRUm5.pngBased on big data analytics, TaKaDu's IoT cloud-based solution enables water utilities to analyze and manage the full life-cycle of network events, such as leaks, bursts, water pressure issues, water quality and faulty assets. Using raw data from multiple sources, TaKaDu helps utilities detect problems (events) early, reduce water loss, shorten repair cycles and improve customer service.

Barry Hales, President, Matchpoint, said, “Water is the world’s most precious resource and we all play a role in conserving it for posterity. The addition of TaKaDu to our toolbox corroborates our mission of providing the information and technology solutions that water companies depend on to operate their businesses effectively. While our sensors provide the raw data, TaKaDu brings it to life – analyzing the data and predicting events before they occur. Matchpoint is excited to offer our customers increased intelligence and visibility into the integrity of their water systems with the integration of TaKaDu.”

“With the ongoing drought in California, and wide awareness of water issues, we’re seeing growing interest in TaKaDu’s event management solution from US water utilities for optimizing network efficiency. Reducing water loss is more important than ever, together with the improvement of customer service. Matchpoint perfectly complements our solution, with its wealth of knowledge and the US market is obviously a huge strategic market,” said Craig Gooch, TaKaDu’s Regional Director for North America.

TaKaDu’s patented solution is used by leading water utilities worldwide, including Australia, South America and Europe.
