Preventos Informatics Oy

Preventos has been created by three water and information technology experts. Each of the three has developed into an expert in their field, following their own paths for 20 years, until in 2018 this diverse expertise began to be offered to customers in the name of an established company.

The vision and guiding goal of our company is to enable the sufficiency of clean water for future generations. What we do comes from a passion for the sport - we get to do things that matters to us. In order to achieve ideological goals, we utilize modern ICT technology.

We also want to think outside the box and therefore we prefer to offer services rather than equipment deliveries. We have noticed the added value of the experience generated by the experience for our customers. Because of the total service, our customers can focus on their own core business without any unnecessary worries.

Vesihuoltoa kehittämässä


The starting point for what we do is human: we want to provide tools to make everyday life easier and to perform better. With site-specific services, we improve the operation, safety and cost-effectiveness of water systems and promote the wise use of resources.

Knowledge does not increase pain, but by measuring things remain under control. With continuous monitoring, you get near real-time information about the operation of the water system, which allows you to quickly identify leaks, anticipate water use and plan remediation and maintenance work.

In addition to information services, we offer a wide range of expert work in matters related to water technology, such as engineering design, network modeling, sensor measurements, data transfer, automatic data analysis, and database and software services.

Services for water utilities

Preventos' water utilities services have been developed into cost-effective tools to improve water distribution and sewage systems management and to improve the productivity of investments. The services are aiming at well-managed water supply and sewerage assets, so that current and future water users can rely on the quality of operations.

The services we are providing are based on cloud computing and easy-to-use and secure browser-based user interface that is available on both mobile devices and office computers. The following services are available to make the everyday life of water utilities easier:

  • Network Information Service (NIS)
  • Customer Information System (CIS)
  • Real-time measurement and reporting service for water network operations (DMA-District Metered Area )
  • Real-time measurement and reporting service for sewerage and stormwater network management
  • SMS and email service for customer information purposes
  • Water meter data entry service for customers
  • Services for utilizing smart water meter data

Services for real estates

Preventos provides water system management and control for the properties. The services include property- or apartment-specific smart water meters and related services for property owners, property managers and residents. We strive to implement the solutions in good co-operation with the customer so that the best possible result is achieved in the implementation. In addition to water consumption monitoring and billing information, our service also covers the necessary smart meter alarm services, such as leak detector and frost hazard alarm, as well as mobile user interfaces for customers.

Services for Industry

Preventos provides the industry with expertise in managing water and other flow systems in production. Solid knowledge of field measurements, flow technology, data transfer and processing, and programming form the basis for a competent and high-quality service.

Services are provided for the management of both process waters and waters discharged into the environment. Our measurement, management and optimization services aim at significant financial savings and optimization of use of resources in accordance with sustainable development. With a continuous flow management service, you can optimize production efficiency and identify disturbances.

The management service operates either as an outsourced back-end service, offering water flow monitoring and optimization as a secure cloud service, or integrated into the plant's own automation system.
