    Providing the full spectrum of meter data management services since 1999.

While meter data is the lifeblood of a utility for billing purposes, with the proliferation of interval and smart metering, this data is the source for in- depth analytics providing utilities with insights into many key areas of their business.

Proficiency in the management of metering data as a valuable resource has thus become a critical business requirement for modern utilities.

Meter Meter Data Management (MDM) covers many aspects of metering data management, from physical meter data retrieval systems and data integrity validation, through to the delivery of the ‘clean’ data to numerous other applications within the utility.

We've been providing the full spectrum of meter data management services to the largest utility in Africa since 1999. Our systems and processes have proven to be robust and reliable, without a single meter reading being lost or corrupt over the past 20 years.
