Symvaro and Paul Scharner united for the environment

At the moment you’re surely wondering, what does a sharp IT company like Symvaro have in common with a football legend like Paul Scharner? But, take the skills, courage and passion of both sides and combine them together – you will witness a force able to change the world. Here’s a little more about how it all began…

When we think about a football legend like Paul Scharner, we think about a man who has already established a successful football career, who engaged in politics and sports as an unconventional thinker on one hand, and on the other hand a happy, loving father of a big family. After moving from Austria to Hamburg it didn’t take long before the classic construction problems arrived. When the time came to locate the water meter, it turned out it was positioned in a secluded shaft. The problem is – such side shafts are often difficult to access. Even a pro in sports reaches his limits in situations like this one, and wonders how to actually read the water meter.

Raising awareness for water consumption

As future-oriented lateral thinker and active Smartphone user, thinking about an innovative technology for the transmission of the water meter readings didn’t take him long.

“We live in a modern and mobile age in which we should take advantage of the technological progress, in particular to raise consciousness about natural and precious resources such as water. Because, let’s look the truth in the eye: No one knows how much water they consume per day, but almost everyone knows the precise fuel consumption amount of their car”, says Paul Scharner.

As a proud father of 4 children, Scharner is sure of one thing, “It is extremely important to have more insight into our daily water consumption in order to raise awareness for this most valuable resource.”

Because of his education as a sports host, Paul found it even more important and urgent to dig deeper into water consumption issues. And where can you do that better, than at a company whose technological focus is in the field of waste and water.
