PETALUMA — Winning in the environment category of Manufacturing Awards is HydroPoint Data Systems Inc., maker of WeatherTRAK, a smart irrigation system.
Yet HydroPoint is more than a manufacturing company, as CEO Chris Spain pointed out.
Its systems include wireless tech, software, high performance computer processing and analytics, mobile and cloud computing, and service is a huge component in the company’s success.
“Our technology beats everything out there when it comes to conserving water and saving money, but if we don’t have people on the spot – first to persuade customers to change their ways and then to support them as they do – we’d have gotten nowhere,” said Mr. Spain.
And HydoPoint has gotten very far since it was founded 10 years ago. Wal-Mart, Kohl’s, Apple, Coca Cola and PG&E are among its customers, along with hotel chains, universities, developers of housing divisions and more than 50 cities and municipal water districts.
