The client is a known city gas distributor in many districts of Gujarat, India. It is a customer-centric, system-focused organization that serves multiple segments of Natural Gas with a huge volume of business, profits, and sales turnover. The four segments are Domestic, Industrial and Commercial/Non Commercial customers through PNG and automobiles through its CNG outlets.
The client was in search for automation of their customer billing and invoicing section. They needed combined meter reading and subsequent billing in a single process that is well integrated with the other systems.
Enterprise clients in Utility Sector have been using SAP for its core business process for the last several years. Customer billing and invoicing was done through SAP-ISU billing. The meter reading was collected manually by visiting every customer premises and uploaded in SAP for billing. The generated bill/invoice was again delivered to the customer manually. The client was finding it difficult to have an automated process for the same.
Looking at the challenges faced by the client and in view of growing customer base, it was felt to automate and combine meter reading and subsequent billing into one process and thus we came up with an idea to develop Spot Bill solution which can interact with SAP ISU billing engine.
SPEC INDIA’s spot bill and meter reading system is used for utility industries like gas, water, and electricity. This app for meter reading consists of a mobile device interface with a web admin panel. Field staff can capture meter reading values and issue spot billing with third-party integration using this application.
This versatile mobile meter reading app offers instant OCR meter reading and recording, invoice generation, invoice printing, and payment collection through mobile devices, attached to a Bluetooth printer, thereby reducing the time gaps between processes. The system is seamlessly integrated with SAP, from where the invoice data is fetched live, processed, and sent back, with payment details. Our spot billing system can be seamlessly implemented for a multitude of industrial domains to enable a faster, easier, and secure way to capture utility meter reading.
