TaKaDu, a global leader in integrated water network management, has announced that it has formed a partnership with the Jasco Group, an integrator that provides services to the IT, telecommunications, energy and now the water sector in Africa. The companies will work together to bring TaKaDu’s solution to the Southern African market.

TaKaDu empowers utilities to use their data to improve overall water network efficiency, making use of big data analysis techniques for day-to-day as well as strategic long-term decision making. Provided as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), TaKaDu brings the benefits of cloud-computing to the water sector. With TaKaDu, Jasco will leverage on its vast background in providing and implementing IT solutions to make this solution accessible to the South African market.

A leader in integrated solutions with extensive experience in software, SaaS, cloud-computing, and data centre management, Jasco is uniquely positioned to enter the water sector in South Africa. “Bringing cutting edge technologies to our customers is a priority for us and we look forward to introducing TaKaDu’s leading integrated solution to the water sector in South and Southern Africa as a whole,” said Pete da Silva, CEO of Jasco. “The African water utility market is evolving quickly, and we want to be the first ones to bring top-notch innovation that will help utilities save water, energy, time, and money” he added.

“Africa is a brand new territory for TaKaDu and I believe that Jasco is the ideal partner for this region because they understand the importance of network monitoring and management as part of reaching overall network efficiency goals,” notes Amir Peleg, Founder and CEO of TaKaDu. “They already support entities across different industries to focus on energy management, dashboard development, and network monitoring for the smart grid. For this reason, we are pleased that they will be TaKaDu’s local representative for driving smart water network business in the region.”

This partnership combines TaKaDu’s leading integrated solution with Jasco’s deep knowledge of the Southern African market, enabling clients to further expand water saving initiatives and asset management strategies among other operating efficiencies.
