Optimize resources through managed services
Water utilities of any size can access secure data at any time via Neptune’s managed services, using a cloud-hosted solution instead of an on-site server and avoiding new investments in IT and infrastructure. Personnel don’t have to monitor a network and can focus on collecting metering data, reducing non-revenue water, and providing customer service instead of having to download/apply system, security, or software updates.

Mobile asset management
The Itron mobile solution is a data collection and field asset management solution that allows utilities to use the Itron mobile app on the device of their choice for automated meter reading and manual data collection. Capabilities include the ability to capture photographs as part of the meter-reading process and utilize cloud-based maps on all devices to display route and meter data. Meter readers can always be connected, which allows supervisors to manage their mobile workforce remotely and easily reassign work. Accurate data collection ensures accurate bills and satisfied customers, while audible and vibration warnings alert employees of hazards.
Commercial water meter
The OMNI compound (C²) water meter from Sensus is a technologically advanced commercial meter with patented Floating Ball Technology that lets you capture more revenue by accurately measuring a wider range of high and low flows. The single chamber design eliminates crossover water loss and features only one moving part inside the measuring chamber. Simple design means less maintenance and optimum performance throughout its long lifespan.
