Meter reading software is a specialized application designed to collect, manage, and analyze data from various types of utility meters, such as electricity, gas, water, or heat meters.
It is most commonly used by utility companies, property management firms, and organizations that need to monitor and bill for metered services.
Enterprise clients in the Utility Sector have been using SAP for its core business process for the last several years. Customer billing and invoicing were done through SAP-ISU billing. The meter reading was collected manually by visiting every customer’s premises and uploaded in SAP for billing. The generated bill/invoice is again delivered to the customer manually.
In view of the growing customer base, it was felt to automate and combine meter readings and subsequent billing into one process and thus we came up with an idea to develop a Spot Bill solution
which can interact with the SAP ISU billing engine.
