OPERATIONAL SAVINGS AND A MULTI-UTILITY SOLUTION

Smart meters that enable remote meter reading have made field readings a thing of the past. Without having to send technicians into the field, utilities now can optimize their field operations. Smart meters are also the perfect solution for leveraging electricity metering infrastructure to measure gas, heat, and water consumption at much lower costs (multi-utility). Such solutions are also logistically far easier to manage than separate systems.
