GWI WaterData is a truly comprehensive global compendium of all things water.
I am able to easily look at the water space through multiple lenses (geography, industry, application, technology) and find detailed information and data on that topic.
This saves a tremendous amount of time. Furthermore, the information is provided in a compelling visual format that is frequently refreshed on the homepage.
As a result, as an innovation leader, I have a steady stream of what is new and interesting in the water space to review and think about.
Lastly, the depth of research is significant and supported by periodic webinars which go beyond the numbers to help me understand what is driving change and where our markets are heading.
Again, invaluable as someone charged with driving innovation at Solenis. I have not seen anything comparable to GWI in the water space and would highly recommend it.
