By CIOReview | Tuesday, February 23, 2016

FREMONT, CA: Badger Meter, an international leader and manufacturer of flow measurement and control solutions, made an announcement of the release of their mobile solution BEACON Advanced Metering Analytics (AMA). The novel product amalgamates the spontaneous BEACON AMA software suite with the ORION communication tools, providing greater power, additional data and improved consumer experience.

“We’re excited to be able to combine the resources of BEACON AMA and ORION to offer our customers a single, secure solution for effectively managing their utilities. Combining the capabilities of BEACON AMA with the comprehensive, upgradeable meter reading solutions of the ORION product family gives utilities a metering solution that is both comprehensive and efficient,” asserts John Fillinger, Director of Utility Marketing, Badger Meter.

In addition, whenever an Internet connection is recognized, the BEACON AMA software platform mechanically coordinates meter reading field assignments and meter reading data with the cloud-based BEACON AMA software. This conserves utilities time and means of transportation mileage. Owing to this advantage, a meter reader does not have to necessarily approach the bureau to acknowledge coursework or distribute information. The inventive suite enables quicker presentation of water usage data, escalating utilities’ instantaneous judgment-executing capabilities.

“BEACON Mobile is another great step Badger Meter is taking for its customers and we have already seen the impact in helping to streamline our back-office processes. BEACON Mobile has decreased our 4,000 miles a month drive time with two crews and has reduced customer service calls, while providing valuable data to the end user, our water customer. Our systems keep getting better and better, thanks to the investments Badger Meter is making in technology,” says Bill Teichmiller, CEO, EJ Water Cooperative, Inc. in Dieterich, Ill.
