Smartvatten, a smart water management service company, is partnering up with Egain, a technology company that links intelligent software, big data, and human expertise to provide digital control of your buildings and a self-learning optimization of energy usage.
Property owners today need real-time access to their data through building connectivity. Through this strategic partnership, Smartvatten and Egain help property owners gain control of their buildings, protect their property value, and reach their environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) targets.
Egain Edge is a powerful cloud-based service that visualizes and optimizes property owners’ energy usage automatically. The company’s goal is to stop all unnecessary energy and CO2 emissions in residential buildings. While Egain focuses on identifying improvements with heating consumption and visualizing utility data, Smartvatten offers property owners a scalable solution to monitor their water consumption, catch leaks fast, and achieve cost savings. Unlike alternative water consumption monitoring methods, Smartvatten gives high-resolution, minute-level data.
“Egain stands out as one of the leading providers of platform services for professionally-led residential property owners in the Nordics and now in Germany. We are enthusiastic to become the strategic partner for Egain to bring in the missing piece of water management. Our strong experience in portfolio-wide roll-outs in international contexts ensure the level of quality and scalability to support Egain’s growth strategy,” says Joe Hamari, VP Sales at Smartvatten.
Egain’s end customers can follow the water consumption directly in the Egain Edge platform through an API integration. By joining forces, both Smartvatten and Egain can focus on their core business, and allow property owners to see all their building data in one place. With real-time water, energy, and heating data at their fingertips, property owners get immediate value from the cloud service solutions, and increase their efficiency and sustainability.
“Reaching the Sustainable Development Goals requires collaborative effort. There needs to be a joint venture between many stakeholders including solution providers, property owners, and energy companies,” says Viktor Vitell, Chief Marketing Officer at Egain. “Partnering with Smartvatten aligns with our mission to help customers reach their sustainable goals, and also with how we want to work—delivering high-quality value at a high speed,” continues Vitell.
Smartvatten is a rapidly growing water management service company with a strong focus on water efficiency and sustainability. Smartvatten has +40 full-time employees and operations expanding across Europe and the United States.
Smartvatten’s remote monitoring service helps property owners already in over 7000 properties to stop flushing money down the drain and catch plumbing leaks before it’s too late. In 2019, the Smartvatten system caught over 17,000 leaks, and the water data is transferred to over 45 different leading building energy management softwares.
