“What if we could significantly increase the efficiency of delivering essential services in rural Sub-Sahara Africa? Accepting this as a challenge, Uduma SAS and its technology partner ventured into developing an innovative new business model which combines mobile technologies such as NFC, data connectivity and mobile money in order to provide clean drinking water to millions of people living in remote areas. We believe cashless revenue collection and remote monitoring of water delivery can greatly improve our level of service to customers to ensure reliability. Through its financial support and technical accompaniment, GSMA is a crucial partner in implementing the new model on a large scale.” – Thierry Barbotte, Managing Director Odial Solutions / Director UDUMA S.A.S.
