Taggle Systems is pleased to congratulate it’s first customer, Mackay Regional Council (Qld), on receiving an award at this week’s IWA World Water Congress 2016 in Brisbane. The prestigious Project Innovation Award was presented for MRCs submission “Transformation of a Water Business” in the operations and management category.
The award follows its recent 2016 National Award for Excellence in Local Government and places Mackay Regional Council firmly at the forefront of water business management in Australia, if not the world.
Taggle Systems has worked closely with Mackay Regional Council (MRC) over the past four years, providing the backbone of its fleet-wide automatic meter reading (AMR) network. Taggle’s LPWA network delivers about 292 million meter readings per year to MRC along with data from rainfall gauges, water pressure, sewer overflow and other sensors.
As part of its innovative work with AMR data, MRC developed meter data management software (Miwater) and a web-portal for its customers (MyH20), which enable the council to manage its water resources more efficiently and gives its customers direct access to their water usage information.
