Water-monitoring software and cloud-based storage help boost utilities’ bottom lines.

Maynilad Water Services is the largest private water provider in the Philippines, serving a population of 9 million people in the western portion of Manila.

Maynilad had plenty of data it could turn to in order to help make these decisions. But unfortunately, this data was spread throughout the utility.

Maynilad needed all its data stored in one, easy-to-access location.
