Wadiso is a comprehensive computer program used for the analysis and optimal design of water distribution networks. The program integrates steady state analysis, extended time simulation, water quality analysis and network cost optimization within a graphical CAD/GIS-based environment into a single valuable tool for water engineers.

Sewsan is a comprehensive computer program used for the analysis and optimal design of sewer networks. The program integrates analysis and design within a powerful graphical CAD/GIS-based environment into a single valuable tool for water services engineers. The methodology used in the program is based on the contributor hydrograph technique to simulate and analyse sewer systems. The methodology allows a 24 hour sewer flow hydrograph to be input for each pipe in the system. The different hydrographs are then routed downstream to the discharge point or treatment plant.

Swift is a computer program that performs statistical analyses of data in consumer linked meter reading s databases, such as typically found in treasury or billing systems of water service providers. Apart from valuable information pertaining to consumption patterns and trends it provides a link between actual consumption and locations in the sewer and water system simulation models, thus ensuring accurate population of demands and flows in the models.

IMQS Software is a proudly South African product which was established in the late 90s by two of South Africa's leading Civil Engineering firms which includes GLS Consulting. By supplying market leading integrated infrastructure asset management reporting software to municipal customers, infrastructure managers have a better knowledge of the integrated nature of their asset master planning, asset maintenance planning, asset condition and useful life, as well as better control over their budgets and priorities. As a result, investment capital is being better utilised and the infrastructure is improving as a whole. IMQS is constantly evolving utilising the latest available technologies in collaboration with our vast client base.

GLS Consulting | Stellenbosch | South Africa | Our Technology - sewsan

Sewsan is continually being further developed and maintained in South Africa by GLS Software for a local and international client base. Peaks in the flow are attenuated due to the fact that peak flows from different sources arrive out of phase at the same point. Effect of water infiltration, storm water ingress and leakage of the water distribution system can be considered.
