Carl Awarded Contract Extension With City of Kimberley for Its FlowWorks Application

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA — (Marketwired) — 04/12/16 — Carl Data Solutions Inc. (CSE: CRL)(FRANKFURT: 7C5) (“Carl” or the “Company”), a developer of Big-Data-as-a-Service (“BDaaS”)-based solutions for data integration and business intelligence, is pleased to announce that it–s wholly owned subsidiary, FlowWorks Inc., has entered into an Open-Ended Extension Service Agreement (the “Agreement”) with the City of Kimberley, British Columbia (“City of Kimberley” or the “City”) for Carl–s FlowWorks Application (“FlowWorks” or the “Application”).

The City of Kimberley signed an initial contract for the use of FlowWorks in October 2013 and has been an active user ever since. A case study was conducted on the City–s use of the Application, which can be found on the FlowWorks Inc. website at: .

FlowWorks is a powerful Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”)-based application for collecting, monitoring and analyzing environmental data. FlowWorks is flexible, affordable and easy-to-use compared to competing software packages. The Application has the unique ability to collect data from all sensor hardware, public and private data sources and merge the information into a comprehensive analytics and reporting online portal.

FlowWorks– advanced tracking features have allowed the City of Kimberley to perform nightly flow analysis to identify specific areas, volumes and rates of water leakages in near real-time. Such information has facilitated more proactive water system servicing, preventing flooding and property damage throughout the region. Mike Fox, Manager of Operations and Environment of the City of Kimberley, commented, “FlowWorks has brought the City of Kimberley into a new age with regard to understanding what is happening in our water system.”

The City of Kimberley has benefited from FlowWorks– alarm features, particularity in regard to transportation, recreation and tourism. Alarms are set based on the City–s pre-defined environmental parameters and once water levels approach critical levels, the Application automatically alarms the City–s utility and servicing departments. The City then uses this information to announce weather alerts to the public and to recommend and advise on snowmaking activities at Kimberley Alpine Resort (the “Resort”), a popular local ski resort and tourist attraction.

FlowWorks displays the City–s water reservoir levels on its online dashboard, enabling the City to advise the Resort of the most optimal snowmaking conditions. The Application–s alert features enable the City to immediately notify the Resort of depleting water reservoirs, which restricts the Resort–s snowmaking capabilities. This has reduced strain on the local water system and has enhanced snowmaking productivity at the Resort, resulting in significant cost-savings and synergies between the City and the Resort.

In addition, FlowWorks– advanced reporting features have allowed the City to report its data to federal government agencies like Health Canada and Statistics Canada more efficiently, accurately and faster than was possible prior to using the Application. The City no longer manually records compliance-monitoring data, streamlining its performance reporting for operations and management of personnel.

Chris Mummery, the City of Kimberley–s Utilities Supervisor, commented, “With FlowWorks, we know what–s actually going on in the field. Operations staff and management alike utilize FlowWorks on a daily basis. The first thing I do in the morning after checking my emails is to go to FlowWorks and track trends. We have been able to pick up on leaks and issues at Press Relieve Valve stations, which are used to divert excess water out of the City–s system, much, much faster than in the past.”

Greg Johnston, CEO of Carl Data Solutions Inc., commented, “The City of Kimberley has expressed its intentions to expand its use of FlowWorks. It will incorporate all of the City–s water and wastewater sites, weather stations and temperature sensors on roads leading to the Resort, which highlights the multifaceted and dynamic uses of our FlowWorks application. The City of Kimberley is a significant part of our established presence in British Columbia, which includes 78 sites provincially and growing. Contracts within British Columbia are very important because the west coast receives a lot of rainfall annually. Consequently, these governments require the most advanced environmental and water management systems available, which is what FlowWorks offers. It–s a great achievement to have such a sizeable portfolio of FlowWorks users in British Columbia and we look forward to continuing to grow our client base over this year.”
