Meter Management

Optimize Your Meter Management

Utilities are responsible for meter processes that range from reading usage to replacements. In the past, it has been a very manual process. Technology is helping to improve meter management by connecting systems and making them mobile-accessible. SAP Asset Manager enables the mobilization of all needs concerning SAP-based meter processes. It supports the relevant master and dynamic data of SAP PM/CS.

SAP Asset Manager

Meter Reading

Manual capture of read-out data as well as various read-out types, e.g. electronic via IEC1107, wireless or optical with picture capturing. The planning of individual read-out packages can be done with an optimized version of the read-out disposition that is integrated into SAP IS-U. Some advantages include:

  • Non-periodic and regular-cycling meter reading
  • Offline-validation of read-out results
  • Planning with the SAP reading scheduling

Meter Replacement

Processes information based on SAP PM/CS orders or dispatches and mobilizes the relevant data from SAP IS-U, such as data of the connection object, the device location, the premise, or the meter itself.

Furthermore, reading instructions and offline data validation are considered during meter reading capturing. All mobile captured data can be automatically entered in the Movilitas follow-up processing cockpit in SAP IS-U, controlled manually with the 4-eyes concept and, in the case of an error, reentered afterward. Some advantages include:

  • Meter replacement, change and deinstallation
  • Smart meter rollout (e.g. IM4G for German providers)
  • Signature detection, change reports creation
  • Electronic reading via IEC1107 protocol

Blocking, Encashment & Reactivation Processes

Processes information based on SAP PM/CS orders or notifications and mobilizes the relevant data from SAP IS-U, such as data of the connection object, the device location, the premise or the meter itself. Furthermore, blocking data of the customer’s open items is considered as well. Some advantages are:

  • Display of open client items
  • Read-out data capturing during blocking and reactivation
  • Logging of blockings, payments and reactivations
