our journey

Solutions for Real World Problems

Our Intelligent Water Management Platform is based on 25 years of experience working on real-world problems that many of our clients faced every day.

When we started out, existing approaches relied on training and consulting – and results were fleeting.

We applied our domain expertise in mechanical engineering, plumbing, and facility operations to develop scalable, end-to-end technology that could work in an automated way for properties everywhere. Since we were measuring in real time, we were able to guide in real time.

The APANA platform optimizes everything that uses water. The impact goes beyond controlling risk and eliminating water waste from the built environment.

APANA transforms the field of water management while helping to ensure the sustainability of Earth’s most precious asset: water.
