RALEIGH, NC - January 25, 2005
Sensus Metering Systems (Sensus), a leading provider of utility metering and AMR systems, announces today the availability of the SiMS meter data warehouse product. With utilities, energy suppliers, aggregators, wholesale providers and ISO’s all having requirements for and access to more frequently collected meter data, there has developed a need to provide a robust meter information management system. SiMS from Sensus provides a central meter data warehouse and information management system for the collected meter data. SiMS provides fast, easy, open access to the meter data and interface links of the meter data to any of the metering entities’ business software applications.
“We’re pleased to offer metering entities a meter data warehouse solution that provides a robust information management system for the collected billing and settlement quality meter data” says Dave Herchko, V.P. AMR Products & Services for Sensus. “SiMS, as a web enabled solution, meets a requirement for meter data storage and access resulting from metering entities using multiple AMR technologies for meter data collection.”
Using the integration concept of the SiMS software as a dynamic database hub between the AMR collection systems and the meter entities’ business software applications provides a practical and efficient approach to address the data interface needs of the entities.
