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 MetriX and PWX AnalytiX - the first set of business intelligence tools in WASH - enable effortless tracking of projects, portfolios, and impact.
