WATERLOO. A unique solution.

We’ve worked with water providers to create a unique solution that removes the administrative burden of meter exchange and reading. WATERLOO helps you manage these processes efficiently!

Easy to use

Manage all water meters online from the start to the end of their service lives: our software provides an intuitive solution.

Customer integration

Increase customer satisfaction by providing a convenient app, web portal and hotline.

Maximum efficiency

Our solution enables you to save up to 80% of the resources required for conventional meter reading and exchange.

Meter exchange with WATERLOO.

All water meters must be exchanged following the expiry of the calibration validity period mandated by your national government.

Our meter reading module for municipal technicians means you can wave goodbye to unnecessary paperwork.

  • Manage routes online
  • Immediate feedback regarding unusual deviations in demand
  • Automatic comparison with and validation of user-reported readings
  • Can be managed completely via the WATERLOO Management Centre
Tablet
Tablet for technicians

Our robust tablet for use by technicians is shockproof and splash-proof, enabling technicians to work without restrictions and eliminate unnecessary paperwork.

Checklists
Checklists

Customisable checklists help you ensure that everything is as it should be! Checklist items like “Is the meter easily accessible” and “Does the meter have a seal?” help technicians to reliably document the conditions in individual households.

Plausibility
Plausibility checking

Our plausibility checking tool runs continuously in the background and reports discrepancies as soon as they occur. This helps you avoid errors arising from transposed numbers. It also helps you identify unaccounted-for water consumption (e.g. due to leaks or pipe breakages) at an early stage and eliminate the possibility of microbial contamination in cases of zero consumption.

Routes
Route management

Our intuitive route management function enables you to create smart routes for meter exchange. You, your staff and your residents save time as a result of optimised planning.

Documentation
Photo documentation

Create photo documentation of old and new meter readings to avoid unnecessary disputes or follow-up investigations. Technicians can also document conditions at the site of the meter, ensuring that all relevant information about installation equipment, accessibility and meter location is safely stored for future reference.

QR codes
QR code recognition

Thanks to the QR code, the technician on site can read the meter simply by scanning it with the tablet. In this way, the transposition of numbers is avoided and the quality of data automatically increased.

Acknowledgements
Customer acknowledgements

You have the option to have the meter exchange confirmed by signature. The acknowledgement form can be sent to residents automatically by email.

Appointments
Appointments

Use WATERLOO to quickly and easily arrange appointments with residents, ensuring that technicians aren’t left standing in front of a locked door.

User-reported readings with WATERLOO.

WATERLOO offers a range of solutions for integrating customers into the management of water meter data.

With one of our four solutions, it couldn’t
be easier for residents to self-report
their meter readings.

24h hotline

Residents can report their meter readings at any time using our fully automated, 24-hour hotline.

Apps

Readings can be reported at any time using our WATERLOO 365 App for Android and IOS. The app allows residents to attach a photo of the meter or to enter the data manually. In addition, it enables them to monitor their water consumption and compare it to other households.

Web form

Readings can be reported at any time via the web form. Residents can access the form by visiting www.splashy.io. Alternatively, they can simply scan the QR code when requested.

Chatbot

Readings can be reported at any time using our chatbot “Splashy”. “Splashy” can be accessed by residents at www.splashy.io or integrated into your municipality website.

Post

Residents can continue to send their meter readings by post or to submit them in person. The request to provide a meter reading is sent on a fully automated basis at the beginning of each meter reading period.
