As the water and wastewater industries continue to expand, it’s crucial that the technology used in the industry gets more precise and refined. In the previous blog, “Better Software, Stronger Performance, Overall Improvement,” talked about how the current technology used in plants is not designed for the individuals in the industry. There are three pillars that need to be kept in mind when creating modern technology for the water and wastewater industry.
We will explore each individually starting with Pillar One…
The first pillar is: software must be developed with water professionals in mind every step of the way. The key purpose in doing so is to encapsulate and address the industry specific problems water professionals deal with daily. Often, the software they currently use has pre-configured templates that were made by software engineers who don’t have experience in our specific industry. This can lead to an increase in inconveniences in daily duties of water professionals or spending extra time on simple tasks that could benefit from a platform designed for you.
Improper software choices not only slow down worker productivity but can lead to a loss of up to $15,000 per employee. This loss is attributed to the extra time employees must use in order to make software fit there needs. Software is a vital component when running a business and deciding on the right one could make or break your employees productivity.
There are steps an employer should take before deciding what software their company should use. Making sure that you are getting software from a vendor that is familiar with the wastewater industry helps to give you an understanding of what you can expect with the software and whether it is the right fit for your company.
Making the change to properly designed software for the water and wastewater industry will help improve the efficiency of your operations, make your employees' daily duties easier, and save you money.
