DataCol Announces SevenX Cloud


A new pricing plan for all ends of the market

The biggest utility enterprises in New Zealand and Australia have benefitted for years by using our meter reading management solutions. Our meter reading software, SevenX, includes intelligent metering solutions in the form of automated meter reading (AMR) which is seamlessly upgradeable to advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems. Those that have adopted it have seen improved efficiency and quality outcomes of their meter data collection.

A utility enterprise that has experienced the benefits of SevenX is Australia’s largest water and wastewater provider, Sydney Water.

The SevenX system has enabled Sydney Water to improve and simplify their quarterly reading cycle by providing server software that manages field force logistics and collects meter data from handheld units (HHU) in the field via manual or automated reads. Based on open technology, SevenX allows our customers to use commodity priced handheld computers rather than expensive and inflexible propriety hardware.

This had led to Sydney Water seeing a 20% reduction in meter reading costs, a decrease in billing enquires and improved customer service. If you’d like to find out more about how SevenX system has enabled Sydney Water to improve and simplify their quarterly reading cycle, you can read the full case study here.

Some of SevenX’s key features include:

  • Billing/CRM integration
  • Ability to link to AMR systems
  • Scheduling and route management: automated route creation and assignments to field force
  • Performance tracking monitor field staff performance and equipment in the field
  • Available as WEH, Android or iOS apps.

Although SevenX has been mostly used by larger enterprises, we’re announcing a new solution for smaller utility companies and councils. This new solution is called SevenX Cloud, which is a cloud-based version of SevenX with a new pricing plan to suit the smaller Councils. It’s an affordable solution that caters for all ends of the market. With this solution you can share the SevenX technology with other small companies. While this means there is less opportunity for customisation, the key advantage is that you share the cost of SevenX with these other small companies, meaning everyone can enjoy the benefits that SevenX offers.

If you are a utility company or council with around 50,000 connections, contact us today to talk about our SevenX Cloud solution.
