Mobile slide valve maintenance in water networks

The Challenge

Water utilities have recognised for a long time that IT-based processes in technical service have a high potential for savings and quality improvement.


Considerable process optimisation in the area of legally required valve maintenance in water networks can be achieved by processing these orders paperless.


This requires a system solution that provides service technicians with maintenance orders electronically. It must also ensure that this data is transmitted securely and correctly between employees and company Headquarters.

The Solution

Axino Solutions Mobile valve maintenance is the solution for efficient valve maintenance in water networks.


The employees need a mobile device to receive and process their orders. Depending on the operating conditions, this can be a low-cost consumer PDA, an industrial PDA or even a tablet PC. Usually the sliders of a grid square or area are combined to one order. This order is then assigned to the responsible technician.


Our solution ensures that the order is transferred to the technician's end device.


The mobile application contains all the essential functions required for processing this type of order:

  • Order overview - List of the sliders to be maintained

  • Display and correction of master data, e.g. location data

  • Confirmation of states to: signage, street cap, key bar, rotatability of the slider, valve position, tightness etc.

  • Recording of maintenance work carried out

  • Feedback of other defects

  • Feedback of civil engineering measures

  • Feedback of plan inconsistencies
