PWX addresses the challenge of scale! By dividing up the work and increasing the number of expert resources at very low cost, PWX can manage thousands of small-scale projects for the long-term: from funding to impact. PWX helps competitors become collaborators; as they work together, learn, and share, we create the impact we desire. Field tools like SMS and mobile phones combine with PWX AnalytiX - the first set of business intelligence tools in WASH - enable effortless tracking of projects, portfolios, and verifiable impact.
If you want to be incrementally better: Be competitive.

If you want to be exponentially better: Be cooperative.
In addition to being the only scalable, map-driven, and transparent platform in the WASH sector, PWX is the only participatory decision-making system where empowered applicants weigh in on funding decisions. A collaborative, transparent, and efficient exchange, PWX combines people, process, and technology to help make a verifiable dent in the global water crises.
