About Us

We started DataSpot because we've seen the increasing liability risks facing municipalities and organizations caused by the inadequate record-keeping procedures for winter control. Mitigating liability claims won't come from implementing new standards, but by understanding where and how the current measures are monitored.

Our Mission

To deliver the necessary tools that enable the cities of today to evolve into the smart cities of tomorrow.

What we do

Working with the data that's already there

We take an organization's existing winter maintenance data systems and consolidate it into AWS servers. From there, our modelling algorithms go to work and begin making calculations to scrub through all that data into understandable information. In the final analysis, the data becomes accessible through our elegant user interface, where users can search their data, generate reports, or to find actionable metrics.

Why we do it

Cost savings while maintaining road safety

The number of variables for winter operations is increasing every year, and the current record-keeping methods are unable to keep up. The critical balance of road salt usage that both reduces environmental damage while maintaining road safety is challenging. On account of those difficulties, we believe that interacting and visualizing winter operations data will provide the insights for making cost-effective decisions or for assisting in liability mitigation.

Where we are

Made in Canada

Based in Waterloo, ON, Canada, our small team can work closely with our clients, and unlike more prominent companies, we'll tailor our software to their needs. We have experience in the municipal and energy sectors, so we understand that each municipality and organization has it's own unique winter maintenance program.
