"HAKARU EXpress" is a solution-based business aimed at streamlining water quality management, offering to solve the problems that Japan as a society is currently facing, including the issues of how to pass on technical know-how to other workers, as well as reducing manpower required for management in order to make operations more efficient. HAKARU EXpress differs from conventional business models in that it offers the value inherent in the water quality “values” measured by these instruments. This system is used to remotely monitor the condition of water quality measuring devices to optimize inspections and rapidly respond in the case of a malfunction as the manufacturer performs all tasks from data analysis to preventive maintenance. In this paper, we describe the results of using HAKARU EXpress with our Automatic Total Nitrogen/Phosphorus Monitoring System, a water quality measuring device used in the field of factory wastewater management, as our first line of business, and explain the objectives and future prospects of this system.
