Côte d’Ivoire is a country in West Africa with a population of about 20 million. Abidjan is the economic capital with about 4 million inhabitants. The high concentration of population in the cities (about 45% urban population), requires the existence of a strong organization, capable of efficiently providing water, sanitation and electricity services.

SODECI has had exclusive responsibility for the production and distribution of drinking water in urban areas in Cote d’Ivoire since 1987, and for the operation and maintenance of sanitation facilities in the city of Abidjan since 1999. It is linked to the State of Cote d’Ivoire by a lease contract.

CIE is a company that transports, exports, imports, distributes and markets electrical energy throughout Côte d’Ivoire and West Africa. It is one of the leaders in its sector on the African continent.

Project Description

SODECI and CIE have respectively equipped themselves with the Cart@jour Water and Sanitation and Cart@jour Electricity and Public Lighting business applications. The two companies would like to have a software allowing to:

  • Seizure of assets in accordance with the rules of the art of a hydraulic / electricity network
  • A use of the GIS that ensures the processes of updating and updating data
  • Having solutions for consulting and updating data in the field
  • Having dashboards and indicators on heritage

For SODECI: Geolocation and inventory of connections and delivery points in connection with subscriber management (Saphyr software)

For CIE: Interfacing with Alstom’s DMS and Infor’s CMMS
