Smart Meter (AMI)

A utility takes a step towards a "Smart Grid" with deployment of an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)

We work with clients and their technology partners to plan and implement business capabilities that modernize metering, field operations and "meter-to=cash" processes, while ensuring the security of critical infrastructure and the privacy of customer information. We develop strategies to maximize and accelerate benefits made accessible by investments in an AMI.
