During the workshops the American Water team told us that one of the challenges they face when dealing with customers is that they don't seem to realize how much water they use, so inspired by that and the visualization challenges we decided to build a tool that would allow them to learn about their water usage in a fun an engaging way, using challenges, quests and achievements to keep them motivated, and displaying their usage stats compared to others in a nice chart. Our tool also helps the water company acquire more information about the household and encourages them to submit frequent meter readings.
How it works
Users can login and see their current stats, badges, water usage charts and maps, etc. They can also update their household information and provide meter readings that the water company can incorporate to their datasets. There's a level progression that is achieved by completing quests and challenges to gain xp.
