As small specialist Companies based in the UK, ILMSS Ltd and WLR&A Ltd could not have provided training, mentoring and technical support required to promote and implement the IWA Water Loss Specialist Group best practices in water loss and pressure management to some 645 users of LEAKSSuite software in 75 countries by March 2015.
Regional (Exclusive) Distributors
International support was provided by allocating exclusive LEAKSSuite distribution rights, for Geographical Regions (individual countries or groups of countries), to carefully selected companies or individuals specialising in leakage and pressure management in those Regions. Their local knowledge was enhanced by regular update training in WLSG concepts, software and latest research. The software could then be further customised to meet the specific requirements of any Utility or organisation.
Issue of software site licences to individual Utilities over a number of years can result in their having most of the leakage and pressure management software they need. Or, provision of a free national water balance software (e.g. by American Water Works Association) will reduce the demand for commercial water balance software. Both situations are welcomed by ILMSS Ltd, as they indicate widespread buy-in to IWA best practice concepts. Thanks are therefore offered to the following former Exclusive Distributors of LEAKSSuite software, for their strong support in achieving these outcomes.
