What Do You Need?

It is very helpful to start with knowing what is needed with the system. For some applications, a daily summary of usage may be all that is required for the utility. For other utilities, there may be the need for real-time monitoring, offering maximum planning and usage understanding for the utility.

Most utilities will also find value in using a water meter monitoring system that provides billing services. This relieves the pressure for your in-house staff to complete monthly billing.

Ideally, and for customer convenience as well as streamlining the billing cycle, consider the advantages of moving to online billing. Not only does this eliminate the paper and the mailing issues, but it also allows the water management service to process the payments. If this is the option selected, verify that the system accepts the most common types of payments including PayPal, eCheck and all major credit cards.
