WHAT IS SMART METERING?
Smart Metering effectively monitors the consumption of energy. This Intelligent Metering Solution provides data collection between the meter and the billing management system. Smart Meters make use of industry standard protocols, allowing for secure and reliable communication to effectively monitor utility usage, allowing the consumers and utilities to optimise their energy usage and spend, into the future.
Accurate Demand Forecast
Improved Resource Management
Can be linked to water, Electricity & Gas
Integrating the processes used in operating, monitoring and managing multiple energy forms provides many benefits. For example, the flexible netVendor Smart platform can be used for a variety of advanced metering operations, including electricity, gas, water and heating.
Consumers want reliable and affordable energy from their utility. netVendor Smart is engineered to assist the utility in delivering both – from outage management and predictive maintenance to multi-tariff pricing and efficiency programs — in ways that engage the consumer with information and choices.
netVendor Smart assists in reducing non-technical losses and identifies theft with a wide range of advanced tools. Utilities can remotely switch power supply on and off, improve debt collection processes and respond quickly to abnormalities which may threaten revenue.

Features of Smart Metering:
Consumers benefit from precise usage information that enables greater control over future energy distribution and use. From home energy management applications to automated demand response, netVendor Smart helps make energy efficiency a reality from distribution to end use.
From systems integration to field operations, netVendor Smart provides process automation and information needed to improve resource management across the utility organisation. And because infrastructure, IT and communication services can be managed in a single end-to-end platform, implementation and operation of the technology are also efficient.
