CityTaps

By leveraging the internet of things and smart water meters, CityTaps partners with local utility companies to expand service and guarantee water access to all households by using metering and micro-pre-payment process. This innovative solution combines mobile money and IoT technologies to allow users to prepay by volume, making in-home water access safer, convenient and affordable while proving to utility providers that it is worth their while to provide for all urban residents. With payment security through mobile money, utilities can improve operations and invest to expand coverage, extending the benefits of quality water at regulated prices to all urban dwellers.
