Invenio Systems is a relatively new organisation established to provide innovative solutions to the water industry and its customers. Invenio is the Latin word for ‘to find’ or ‘to discover’; an appropriate name for a company looking for new ways of working based on new information. Our first product is the Stop.Watch system, which uses a unique approach to identify and measure potable water flows past the water company stop tap. The analysis uses a number of different approaches to derive flows from the input data and then combines the results. We have other systems at a pilot stage.
Our focus to date has been on water distribution systems but we are now looking to develop new approaches to manage sewerage systems also.
