HydroIQ launches smart billing App
Kenyan Water & Utility startup HydroIQ has launched its Smart Billing app, which enables property managers and utilities to digitize their water metering, billing, payments and customer service without replacing their current infrastructure.
Founded in 2017 by Brian Bosire and Victor Shikoli HydroIQ, is building smart water grids using sensors, data analytics, mobile and online payments to bring transparency in access and distribution of water.
Globally, water stress has become a conversation that everyone must be concerned about. Our mission is to bring transparency in access and distribution of water.
“In most developing countries, water accounts for at least 11% of family income, yet availability is still big challenge. Close to 50% of water supplied gets lost before reaching the consumers due to leakages and unmetered consumption. Our mission os to bring visibility and transparency in access and distribution of water to those who need it.” ~ Brian Bosire, Co-founder & CEO of HydroIQ.
To address these water problems, HydroIQ developed solutions to make every drop count, by ensuring zero error metering, Transparent Billing and payments and powerful analytics from source to consumer. Since launch in mid 2018, more than 3M Litres of water has delivered through its network.
With the launch of HydroIQ SmartBilling – A SaaS solution for water sector, We have once again positioned ourselves as the global leader in digitising the water sector and bringing it online. This perfectly complements our VWNO product launched in 2018, to digitize the water infrastructure.
Already, more than 13K households are in the pipeline pre-launch. We have partnered with leading real estate and water supply companies to introduce this solution to their clients.
COVID-19 has been an awakening instant for most businesses. The water sector is playing a significant role in combating its spread and effects. During this times, HydroIQ will offer their SmartBilling solution to select organisations with the goal of digitising their operations as part of our contribution to the fight against the pandemic.
“Our goal is to unlock the digital potential by bringing transparency in access and distribution of water across Africa, by taking advantage of online and mobile payments. “ ~ Brian Bosire , CEO & co-founder. “Making water data available is the first step towards understanding the global water demand trends and better avoid many more “day Zero’s” in future.” ~ Victor Shikoli, Co-founder & COOhttps://www.hydroiq.africa/post/hydroiq-launches-smartbilling-app
