What is the Qatium platform?

 

Qatium is a SaaS solution created to analyze water distribution networks and help operators optimize their network performance. The objective: make the best use of a scarce and vital resource, water.

Up to 50% of clean water gets lost between the source and the tap. Qatium’s mission is to create tools that can help in making the management of water infrastructure more efficient.

You can read more about Qatium at qatium.com. Also, you can take a test drive of our product at qatium.app.

 

 

What about Qatium’s challenges?

 

We have no choice but innovating
Qatium is competing face to face against heavy desktop applications, but as a web application.
We’re building a completely new product, building the tools and frameworks that make Qatium possible.

We apply high quality engineering
At Qatium, you will face complex problems related to hydraulic simulation or real-time graphical representation, among others.

Qatium needs to convey a lot of information simultaneously
We are building a single software package for users with different expertise levels inside the water industry. All of this, built over an interactive map. We learn from our users to provide them with the information they find the most useful at every point of their user journey.

We are continuously discovering our path
Being a new product, our future is yet to be built. We have the responsibility of transforming our product vision into software that is useful for our users, relying on their feedback.

Collaborative

Qatium aims towards breaking knowledge silos, transforming raw data into easy to understand information for all people involved in water management, independently of their expertise level or role in their teams.

Disruptive

Unlike the well established giants, we follow XXI century modern industry practices: self-service, flexible licensing, elegant user interfaces, cloud-first, lean development, continuous improvement and community collaboration.

Accessible

Qatium democratizes water management. Water is the most important resource on our planet, and we want all operators to take the most possible care of it.
We turn complex operations into easy ones, assisted by a powerful visualization tool that allows teams managing water to perform any operation they may need.

Straightforward

Our knowledge base is a living, breathing document requiring constant updates and curation.

In the coming year we’ll have loads of new Qatium features to explain and showcase, and we’ll keep improving our Help Center, using data and customer feedback to make the best possible content.
