It might seem like a far-fetched idea for some utilities; however, as we are well into 2020 now, some companies are already helping to forge this into reality.
Tap water has a great origin story. In the early 1900s, public water systems began routinely disinfecting drinking water supplies. This turned out to be critical in the reduction of waterborne diseases. Water has always been an innovative industry. Imagine if routine disinfection of drinking water had been met with resistance, or hadn’t been thought […]

Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen first coined the phrase “disruptive innovation” in his 1997 book, The Innovator’s Dilemma.

You know how important it is to reach your customers where they are — and often, you do so via email. Some may argue that email is ineffective or that marketing […]
Branding and customer experience are complicated in an industry where customers don’t have a choice in their water and wastewater service provider. Historically, water utilities focused on protecting public health and the environment, which are important to the health and vitality of a community.
