Since its establishment in 2015, Baseform has rapidly gained a leading position in the markets where they are present. This is because of a few key notions:
• water networks are not sets of pipes, they are living organisms that jointly provide a service – we focus on making sure utilities provide the service 24/7, now and in the long run.
• public infrastructures have to last beyond us, and the changes that each generation can introduce are very limited.
• the software tools available on the market – billing, inventory, SCADA, maintenance – are good at their respective roles; but they scatter data, processes, and sources of information away from the key decisions.
• daily operation is an attention-sapper; operational decisions, planning efficiency and long-term corporate objectives have little chance of effectively aligning unless something is done right at the root of the problem.
