The need to manage and process meter data is critical to a utility’s billing process for those customers where the tariff is based on calculations on the interval metering data.
What is Meter Data Management? The definition of Meter Data Management (MDM) covers many aspects of managing metering data received - from meter data retrieval systems to the delivery of the data to other systems. Managing the data includes gathering the data from multiple sources and providing it in a consistent manner to downstream systems, after ensuring the data has been verified through a set of business rules or logic.
We’ve been providing meter data management services for over 15 years, and the systems and processes used have proven to be robust and reliable, without a single reading being lost.
With smart meters and more complex rate structures, the volume of metering data available is growing exponentially. The time frames from reading the meter to producing the energy bill have also reduced dramatically. It is under these market conditions that we develop our custom solutions. We've developed and currently support the largest MDM solution by energy volume in South Africa.
