Although it took a little bit longer to develop these processes and apps with AppSheet, in the long run I think it saved us a lot of time because of the way we could digitize every single process. Now every core component of our operations is digitized.
SEATTLE (PRWEB) September 12, 2018
PayGo Energy’s Head of Operations, Mark O’Keefe, receives AppSheet’s Innovator award; an award that recognizes app creators for creating apps that change how work is done, influencing positive changes in organizations and the world.
PayGo Energy, a company based in Nairobi, is revolutionizing the way the world accesses clean fuel. While working in an informal settlement in Nairobi, the PayGo team noticed that households were spending more money to cook with dirty fuels, like charcoal and kerosene, than they would with gas. Their challenge: how to sell gas in small quantities so that everyone has access to clean fuel.
From the start, O’Keefe knew that he wanted to digitize the entire process. “Although it took a little bit longer to develop these processes and apps with AppSheet, in the long run I think it saved us a lot of time because of the way we could digitize every single process. Now every core component of our operations is digitized,” said O’Keefe.
AppSheet’s App Innovator award series shines a light on inspired people creating apps that make a difference in the workplace or the world. “Every day we learn about app creators from every sector—nonprofit, education, construction and more—that have had a significant impact on their business or organization through the development of apps that have changed how people get work done. In ways big and small, we marvel at the ingenuity of these innovators and the apps they create to solve a specific problem, address an unmet need, or change an existing process for the better. This award recognizes those creators as innovators in their fields,” said Praveen Seshadri, CEO of AppSheet.
“Thank you for this opportunity and all of the support. The AppSheet platform made our digitization journey an effective way to manage all our processes,” said O’Keefe.

About PayGo Energy
A PayGo system is installed in a household, including a two-burner stove, cylinder and a smart meter that measures the amount of gas used. Customers access pay-per-use gas by mobile money—in amounts that make sense to them. The valve on the smart meter shuts down when credit runs out and instantly reopens with a new top up. With smart usage and location monitoring, the platform allows cylinders to be replaced before customers ever run out of gas. By removing barriers to adoption, PayGo Energy’s technology and service has shown to hasten the speed of which customers transition away from solid fuels and start and keep on using clean cooking fuel.
