PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Evoqua Water Technologies (NYSE: AQUA), an industry leader in mission critical water treatment solutions, today announced that the company has been named an honoree of the 2019 Digital Edge 50 Awards from IDG’s CIO for its Water One® digital platform. Each year, the prestigious honor is bestowed upon a select group of organizations that have executed digital transformation initiatives with significant, measurable business impact.
Evoqua’s Water One platform was recognized for its success in bringing digital technology to one of the oldest, yet one of the most critical industries in the world’s economy - water. Water One is an enhanced service model that uniquely combines Evoqua’s water expertise, extensive service network and proven technologies with data intelligence to continuously improve water operation management for industries that value water.
Evoqua transformed one of its largest offerings, service deionization (SDI), from a model that relied on regular service intervals and equipment purchase, to the Water One pay-per-use model in which customers pay for the quantity and quality of clean water they need. Using digital technology, the Water One platform minimizes the need for regular service, allowing Evoqua service representatives to continuously monitor treatment systems in real time to enable predictive maintenance and the ability to proactively address potential issues before they arise.
“With our Water One service platform, we’re taking smart water to the next level,” said Ron Keating, CEO of Evoqua. “By digitizing water treatment, we’re enabling our customers to focus on their core business goals and leave water management to us. We are honored to have been included in the Digital Edge 50 and feel that this recognition is a testament to our continuous innovation to serve customers.”
“This year’s class of Digital Edge 50 winners showed a wide range of sophisticated projects. Some involved complete process changes for agile development and innovation, while others empowered new types of customers or employees,” said Anne McCrory, group vice president, customer experience and operations, events, and the Digital Edge and AGENDA19 conference chair. “We also saw companies taking advantage of facial recognition, blockchain and bots, and many uses of AI. And results were just outstanding.”
