Founded in 2003 as Watersave Australia, we began with a desire to innovate for water savings and improved resource management in a sunburnt country. Today we enable other organisations to achieve sustainability gains, business efficiencies, and customer engagement through simple, powerful technology solutions.
To create responsive and intuitive ways to understand complex utilities information and turn data into real business benefits.
We believe we all have a responsibility to utilise our resources wisely. We value: • Sustainability • Integrity • Innovation • Excellence • Trust • Collaboration
Everyone can be more efficient
Every organisation can do more to use less power, gas and water in ways big and small. It is important to our environment and to our shared future. SUMS is helping Australian and New Zealand organisations to do just this.
Efficiency is good business
Using less power, gas and water is not just helpful, it’s good for the bottom line. Being connected to SUMS reduces your environmental footprint, saves you time and money and lets people know you are doing your best for our shared future.
Technology drives good business
Technology is at the heart of what we do: as a driver of insights, as a hardware and software provider, and through the ways we connect with our customers. We believe in maintaining a cycle of continuous improvement so our technology provides the best possible outcomes for our customers.
People make technology work
We help you to get to the most important work! If there are ways to automate, delegate and free ourselves up for the stuff that really matters, let’s make that happen. SUMS helps people manage complex infrastructure networks simply. This frees up time for implementing a policy to reduce electricity usage by 10% in one year or for showing the CEO how saving water saves money across APAC.
Your team infinitely better.
