Eliminate uncertainty to improve outcomes in operations management, day-to-day and strategic decision-making, innovation, and business process reliability and performance.

Sigmafine pulls together disparate data types (operations, inventory, quality, energy and utilities consumption, chemicals and catalysts usage, material movement including receipts and shipments) into an integrated model that is solved continually. The result is a validated, trustworthy operational dataset ready for use by:

  • People in operations management, planning and scheduling, business, financial control, energy management, environmental control, etc. for decision making and redirecting business and operations
  • Applications that require validated data to perform optimally
  • Business processes that depend on trustable data to achieve their targeted outcome

  • Fiscal and/or commercial reconciliation of water, energy, and other utilities exchanges through third-party interconnections
  • Data validation for compliance reporting
  • Gross error detection
  • Closed-loop business process integration with ERP for cost allocation, performance reporting, etc.

The Benefits of Improved Data Quality

The direct benefits of improved data quality in the water industry include:

  • Reduced water losses
  • Reduced energy and utilities consumption
  • Improved cost allocation accuracy
  • Improved billing

The Business Impact of Implementing Sigmafine

Customers who have implemented Sigmafine have achieved:

  • Improved loss avoidance by identifying bad meters early on
  • Reduced time to decision due to data validation automation
  • Reduced risk due to an improved dataset with quantifiable quality
  • Deferred capacity increase investments due to more optimal operations

On top of delivering these benefits that drive operational excellence, it’s been estimated that Sigmafine has a payback period of less than 6 months – a critical value proposition for customers who are tightening resources to stay competitive.
