Water utility customer communications

By Keypro on Jun 23, 2022 12:56:33 PM

In what situations do water utilities usually want to communicate with customers?

KeyAqua's Short Message Service (SMS) and fault map feature help you quickly inform customers and water users comprehensively about network disruptions or planned outages. The traditional informing households with paper bulletins, is too laborious and the delivery of the message is uncertain and slow. In addition to the text message, a fault map can be embedded on the water supply company's website, which visually describes the extent of the disturbance. This map extract will also be sent to the customers with a text message if necessary.

Why is real-time communication important?

Fast and reliable communication is important because the effects of a disturbance may even be related to water quality. For example, if you are prompted to boil water, it is critical that the message reach as many water users as possible as quickly as possible. Even in the event of a water outage, the water consumer will benefit from the information when the message arrives without delay. In addition, the more comprehensive the recipient of the message, the less customers of the water utility call the customer service. Thus, real-time communication reduces the impact of disruption on water consumers and improves customer satisfaction, as well as reducing the need for customer service resources.

In what different ways can you communicate with customers through KeyAqua? What are the options?

Customer communication works either completely independently (without KeyAqua network management) or as an optional feature to KeyAqua. The message can be sent via SMS, voicemail, email, and fault map. It is also possible to communicate to different groups: either direct customers only (data is obtained from the customer information system) or population-based. In Finland, population-based communications, information can be retrieved from the register on a regional basis, which provides all non-secret adult numbers. There may be country specific differences for this service. In addition, KeyAqua has a service where water users can add their numbers or prohibit to receive any messages.

What is the best feature in KeyAquan's SMS + fault map service and why?

Thanks to a highly automated system, all information with a message and a fault map can be sent to customers / residents in less than a minute.

An easy and fast-to-use browser-based service that offers the best possible coverage for reaching water users as well as local residents. The information is therefore user-friendly and also improves the service of the water utility, ie customer satisfaction.

Career stories: Laura

By Keypro on Jun 12, 2022 6:00:00 AM

Name and title: Laura and I work as an software development testing team and marketing assistant

Tell us about yourself and why you applied to Keypro for work?

I am Laura and I started my career at Keypro as a summer job in customer service as part of the cable lookup service team. I later became part of the testing team and am still working full time as part of the testing team. In addition, I run the social media side of Keypro for Facebook and advertising campaigns. I originally applied to Keypro for summer jobs, but I stayed in the company after getting a permanent job. My decision to stay in the company for a longer period of time was influenced by the desire to develop professionally and to work in this company. I live with my family in Joensuu, so it’s great to have an international company of this size in our city.

Tell us about your normal working day?

My usual working day at Keypro involves testing new version updates in client environments. Our testing team supports the work of application developers by testing different client environments after new application version updates before making updates to the environments used by customers. The work requires precision and attention to details. The work also includes documentation and teamwork between both your own and other teams. Marketing related work includes planning advertising campaigns for different customers, collecting results and reporting.

How do you relax?

I relax the most by spending my free time with my family outdoors and moving around in nature. My other hobbies are active swimming and gym training. I also relax by reading a good book.

Career stories: Kari

By Keypro on May 29, 2022 6:00:00 AM

Name and profession: Kari - safe-to-dig -professional marinated in several different projects.

Tell us about yourself and why you applied to Keypro for work?

Hi everyone! I am called Kari, sometimes even someone might call me Kari-perkele.

I am an environmental technology engineer by training, but blood drew into the ICT industry nonetheless. At Keypro, my first career lasted more than 6 years in several different projects, then I changed company and returned back to the so-called roots in early 2021. Returning to Keypro was easy because there is a very professional and down to earth and relaxed atmosphere to work. The people are friendly and international. Keypro's software continues to internationalize with the help of the new owner Geomatikk, and it will be very interesting to see how company's internatinalization keeps growing.

Tell us about your normal working day?

In the excavation permit service, the first words I say to customers in the morning are “Cable lookup service”. During the call, we carefully review the area with the customer where the excavation will begin. After that, we will order a cable display for the destination, taking into account the customer's wishes. In this work, you must be in contact with the customer almost immediately from the start of the contract and be part of a chain that seeks to avoid cable damage. Contacts usually come by phone or email. We see the importance of the customer contacting us at a low threshold. We strive to help and guide the customer to the best of our knowledge and to carry out excavation without cable or infrastructure damages. The job requires precision and versatile IT skills. Good interaction with the customer is also important. Good language skills are useful, as customers can speak Swedish or English as their mother language, in addition to Finnish. It is therefore interesting to listen to customers' different dialects of Swedish…. night no matter how it went.

How do you relax?

I think the best thing is when I get to spend time with my family in nature or traveling. Meeting friends and acquaintances and playing with them (bowling, hockey, frisbee golf, biking, etc.) are also close to my heart. So much so-called. the nerd side of me too finds that i also really like playing online with the gang so that I can also use English language in the games.

Career stories: Noora

By Keypro on May 15, 2022 6:00:00 AM

Name and title: Noora and I work as Product Marketing Manager (KeyAqua, KeyGas, KeyDH)

Tell us about yourself and why you applied to Keypro for work?

Hi! I am Noora, 31, a water engineer from Kouvola. I used to work at the water utility as a design manager, and I switched to Keypro end of 2020. In this work, I was fascinated by internationality and place independence, and the opportunity to make a difference in globally important themes and to jointly develop and innovate solutions.

Tell us about your normal work day?

Every day is different. My biggest single job is to determine the future of a product, both at the top level and in concrete terms. Sometimes things are discussed or developed with partners, suitable in the form of usability testing or development meetings. Sometimes I do marketing tasks like product descriptions or video manuals. Sometimes we translate customer perspectives into our technical service, and sometimes reverse technical perspectives into customer language. I also like water training inside the house. Anyone who keeps a job includes both vision and ideation, and a concrete and technical perspective. The work therefore requires both creativity and engineering. I like that combination.

How do you relax?

I leave by rowing boat on a nearby hammock for the night. Or what's going on outside. My latest hobby is freediving, and I love the sense of peace that is beneath the surface.

Geomatikk Group to join forces with Keypro Oy

By Keypro on May 31, 2021 9:55:14 AM

Helsinki, Finland and Oslo, Norway 31st May 2021: Geomatikk Group (“Geomatikk”), and Keypro Oy (“Keypro”) have signed a share purchase agreement, Geomatikk will under this agreement acquire 100% of the shares in Keypro Oy. Closing is planned on 10th June 2021, contingent upon approvals.

The terms of the transaction are not disclosed.

Keypro is a leading company within the Network Information System (NIS) sector in Europe, providing software to document various types of infrastructure, including electronic communication networks, electricity networks, water supply, gas distribution and district heating networks.

Geomatikk, which is already an industry leader in the Nordics and headquartered in Oslo, Norway, has recently entered the UK and is planning to expand further into the Northern European region. Geomatikk is backed by its majority investor Hg, a leading global investor in software and services.

The acquisition is a logical next step after Keypro and Geomatikk have cooperated for some time. Geomatikk is a distributor of Keypro software in Norway, Sweden and the UK, and the parties have developed a solution to exchange enquiries for the check before you dig service in Finland – launched this spring.

“Geomatikk and Keypro have complementary businesses and there are several advantages to joining forces and providing a complete offering of documentation and protection services for network owners.” says Knut Bratsberg, CEO of Geomatikk. “This is particularly true in the Fiber to the Home (FTTH) sector in Europe which is growing rapidly. There is increasing demand from customers for a combined software and services solution which we can now offer. Together we will continue to become a one-stop source for network owners and the construction industry across Northern Europe.”

Keypro Oy will continue as a separate legal entity with the same products and services following the acquisition. Becoming part of Geomatikk will provide more resources and opportunities for further development and market access for the Keypro software suite.

“These are very exciting times for Keypro and Geomatikk, with some great benefits to the customers of both businesses. This will, for instance, provide beneficial synergies in Finland – the countrywide field coverage of Geomatikk Finland is complementary to the strong offering provided by Keypro’s safe to dig service. Together both companies will look to improve the service for network owners and excavation companies,” said Ari Rummukainen, Chairman of Keypro.
