Neptune welcomes new companies to Connected Utility Partnership Program
Neptune Technology Group announced that Clevest, iWater Inc., and Continental Utility Solutions Inc. have joined its Connected Utility Partnership Program, created to meet the growing needs of water utilities by extending Neptune's capabilities beyond meter reading.
TALLASSEE, AL, June 5, 2014 -- Neptune Technology Group, a provider of innovative meter reading and metering technologies, recently announced that three companies -- Clevest, iWater Inc., and Continental Utility Solutions Inc. -- have joined its Connected Utility Partnership Program, a project created to meet the growing needs of water utilities by extending Neptune's capabilities beyond meter reading.
The partnership program, with its ecosystem of innovative technology providers, will create value for water utilities through an Advanced Sensor Infrastructure (ASI) with shared, analyzed data across an array of utility applications. The goals of the program are to communicate field data across departments and to leverage the institutional knowledge within the utility personnel to create a Smart Water Utility.
All members of the Neptune Connected Utility Partnership Program, irrespective of their level (Premier, Enhanced or Standard), share a common commitment to ensuring simple, out-of-the-box connectivity to Neptune AMR and AMI solutions. This commitment provides utilities with confidence that the interfaces provided will work over time, from release to release of each partner's system, without additional effort or investment by the utility -- in short, putting an end to the pain of "custom interfaces."
