CityTaps is a social start-up whose vision is to bring running water to every urban home.
CityTaps has developed CTSuite, a solution that bridges the gap between water utilities and the urban poor: a water prepayment service that comprises the world’s only smart and prepaid water meter, CTMeter, and a billing software, CTCloud.
Our system helps utilities become financially independent and able to invest in infrastructure for at-home water service to even the poorest residents. Beneficiaries use mobile money to prepay for running water with any mobile phone, at any time, for any amount, and improve their household budget. Running water in the home is substantially cheaper, more convenient, and healthier than any alternative.
Our innovative solution has the potential to dramatically and quantifiably improve the lives and well-being of a billion urban people who do not have access to water at home.
