Southern Water (Worthing, U.K.), the provider of water and wastewater services for Kent, Sussex, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, and their framework partner ARCADIS have selected the Optimatics platform to drive the analysis for understanding how to best blend supplies from multiple sources to meet customer expectations.  The analysis will consider water quality, resilience, level of service and cost considerations simultaneously.

“Similar to the forward-thinking utility leaders who have come to rely on Optimatics in the United States, we continue to find like-minded executives and their consulting engineers fueling our expansion in to the United Kingdom.  Political influences, customer demand, and economic regulation are challenging U.K. utilities to invest in more innovation” said Kevin Shipp, Optimatics Vice President.  “We are in a new era of planning, with a new set of strategic questions that have to be answered.”

Optimatics is changing the trajectory of public utility economics, powering outcome-driven analytics strategies that achieve new levels of operational and community impact. With Optimatics, infrastructure leaders leverage an intelligent platform combined with their engineering judgment to explore the full range of options and tackle complex decision-making with confidence.
