Employing digital expertise for the preservation of our water resources

Our beliefs

At Imageau we are convinced that flawless resource management by water stakeholders, coupled with a greater understanding of the issues faced by all, will contribute to its preservation.

In the pursuit of this, water stakeholders need access to accurate and immediate monitoring of their resources. Thus, facilitating the anticipation of risks and subsequent decision-making that inform action strategies. Consequently, data on the state of droughts in France must be freely available to all.

We design and develop digital solutions that employ artificial intelligence (AI) to gain new insights in water resource management.

Imageau has been awarded multiple distinctions for its innovations and has been a subsidiary of the SAUR group since 2017. Therefore, demonstrating the group’s historical commitment to the preservation of water resources and its desire to develop continuously innovative proposals for its clients.

What drives us

  • Putting digital technology and artificial intelligence to work for the preservation of water resources


  • Facilitating the understanding and sharing of issues related to water resources


  • Promoting the adoption of water resource management and operational practices adapted to climate change


  • Reconciling the balance between environmental benefits, profitability and staff development


” The SAUR group relies on a strong digital culture to develop innovative and responsible solutions for the protection and preservation of water resources. “
