Web based benchmarking
Sigma can manage online benchmarking projects without any further software requirements for the participants.
You define the performance indicators system and Sigma will create a web based benchmarking portal so utilities
can upload data and check the results and reports once they have been published.
All they need is an internet connection and a web browser.
Set targets and limits
In this new version of Sigma you will be able to establish objectives for your indicators.
In this way, it will be much easier to determine if your strategic decisions are leading to the expected results.
Additionally, Sigma allows now to establish graphical limit values (upper and lower limits)
and bring the attention to any potential abnormal behavior from the system. For all these reasons,
Sigma is now an ideal management tool, which will allow you to apply systems such as the balance scorecard to your utility,
while complying with the IWA system of performance indicators.
Benchmarking without good graphics is not benchmarking.
Sigma can generate both classic and modern graphs, but above all, attractive graphs.
Create charts and graphs using any information stored in Sigma through its intuitive and powerful wizard,
comparing data from different utilities or creating time series. Regardless of your choice,
Sigma guarantees that the graphics will be eye-catching.
Simplicity in the analysis
The new version of Sigma allows you to analyse your results in a simpler and more intuitive way.
Classify your utilities according to their similarities in clusters to facilitate their analysis.
Configure your graphics only once as the Smartcharts tool automatically updates all your charts when you insert
new data. In addition, it generates with a single click all the graphics you need to introduce in your reports.
Monitor your data quality
The quality of the results is essential for a good benchmarking.
Sigma allows you assign your data quality and reflects it on your results.
This software is the only one that calculates the accuracy of the performance
indicators following the methodology proposed by the International Water Association itself,
showing not only the uncertainty of each indicator but also the reliability of each variable used for its calculation.
