Turn-key Solutions for Metering and Billing
Metering as a Service® by MeterSYS is a key component of our core business that provides a great opportunity for water utilities of all sizes to benefit from the latest in Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) technologies without the hurdles that most utilities face when considering a metering upgrade. Utilities can outsource all aspects of advanced metering technology in an optimized performance and cost-transparent environment. Our methodology behind this innovative solution is Design, Build, Finance, Operate, and Maintain (DBFOM). Through this program, MeterSYS manages your metering system automation to the level desired by the utility.
Planning and designing smart metering solutions scalable to the customer.
Installation of smart meters and supporting network and infrastructure.
Providing advanced metering equipment to utilities shifting AMI/AMR costs from CapEx to OpEx.
Real-time field support operations and reporting analytics.
System service, troubleshooting, remote monitoring and long-term planning for leverage of technology MeterSYS® MaaS.
The MaaS program of work is specifically designed to increase the affordability of adopting innovative technology through a long-term service contract, as opposed to the utility issuing the traditional debt service to fund implementation under a capital project designation.
Technology investments are critical for greater operational efficiency while meeting the demand for improved customer service. Through meter replacement and automation of reading, your utility will experience significant improvements beyond accurate recording for billing purposes. The Meter Data Management Systems (MDMS) and the supporting analytics for Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) provide metering and billing staff a myriad of data collection points for increased responsiveness and service to your customers and the management of utility operational systems.
AMI systems and two-way communication between utility operations and advanced meters are responsible for major advancements in how utilities are able to utilize data and leverage technology to reduce or eliminate manual work processes. AMI systems can be scaled and its configurations can be customized to provide the flexibility that most utility operators are seeking from technology to address their unique, localized functional requirements.
No capital investment required. This allows the cost of the equipment, maintenance, and ongoing support to be amortized over a portion of the useful life of the asset.
With MaaS, municipalities now have an option to bring fully leveraged AMI technologies to their customers with affordable service contracting, with a refined selection approach, accelerated implementation, and a sustainable and transparent business model.
