Water system managers spend hours measuring water, tracking data, and creating complex reports to verify that water is safe and ready to go. But these workers are taking notes on paper, filling out an Excel sheet at the office, and manually creating reports- often resulting in error, frustration, and wasted time.
A water/waste water consulting firm, Centric Consulting, knew there had to be a better, faster, more accurate way to track and report information for water system operators. So they decided to build it. Initially, they created a solution designed in-house, but as the application proved its value, more and more of their customers wanted to use it. This was great for Centric, because it proved they had created something the market needed and would pay for. Unfortunately, keeping the software up to date in-house quickly became overwhelming.
DeveloperTown and Centric Consulting worked together to architect an application from the ground up. We created a mobile-friendly application with a better user experience, the ability to quickly generate reports, and keep information accurate and secure.
DeveloperTown and Centric leveraged an incredible partnership to create an MVP that is vetted from product strategy to end-user experience.
With a thought-out product, a tested MVP, and a focused design, DT is now heads down on growing the first iteration of the Waterly application. Waterly is rolling out the application starting in Illinois, and will then expand nationally - giving all water system operators a better way to track and report their data.
“I don’t think we’d even still be doing this without DeveloperTown…”
