In the water sector, we have had drought conditions over the summer months, plus ongoing rows about losses due to leaky pipes and excess sewage discharges into rivers and at the coast.
Many companies across the sector have been investing in new products and services to engage with customers better and improve the overall internal and external customer experience. Their efforts, however, have been hindered both by the macro environment as well as the constant pressure to reduce costs, driven by stiff competition and regulatory pressure.
