Managing utilities like electricity, water and gas is a tough, demanding business. Increasingly open and competitive markets, rapid advances in technology and increasing pressures to reduce consumption have utilities looking for ways to work smarter.

At the core is collecting metering data, a moment of truth with a customer for any utility. As a utility company’s ‘cash register’, the speed, accuracy and quality of meter reading has an immense impact on your ability to satisfy customers and build a profitable business.

DataCol is at the forefront of helping Australian and New Zealand utilities to collect and manage metering data more effectively. Rather than relying on expensive and inflexible proprietary technology we apply fresh thinking, open technology and industry experience to provide solutions that make the collection of metering data smoother.
