WaSHMIS (Water Sanitation Hygiene Management Information System) is a system for monitoring and managing Non-Revenue Water (NRW).
WaSHMIS (Water Sanitation Hygiene Management Information System) is a scalable, interoperable system for monitoring and managing Non-Revenue Water (NRW). It works with remote monitoring data (flow, pressure, level) and billing data to calculate water balance at zonal levels and thereafter linking the output with a central asset database (GIS).
Primary competitors in Kenya include various GIS tools.

Water Sanitation Hygiene Management Information System (WaSHMIS) is a set of integrated products for monitoring and managing Non-Revenue Water (NRW). It consists of sensors to acquire and transmit data, server-based processing and storage of data, and a web portal facilitating visualization of data streams in real-time.
More information is collected through Customer Identification Surveys and is used to map water usage, and this is integrated with the metering information which can be used to show usage patterns, leak detection, and reduce Non-revenue Water.
Testing performed by Upande and GSMA determined that the GSM-enabled loggers being used to narrow in on subzones with higher Non-Revenue Water (NRW), CIS App used to reconcile GIS and billing, and the Job Card App being tested to track corrective action performance, all aimed at more revenue, a better level of service, lower operating price, compared to the traditional manual model.
No known safety hazards are related to this product.
