Sydney Water’s SevenX Success


“It’s enabled us to pull in new technologies and there are some significant benefits in how the SevenX system allows us to read mixed routes with manual and AMR meters,” says Jason Dagger, Program Manager Metering at Sydney Water. “This ability to cost effectively read AMR allows us to defer a large capital outlay that comes with implementing AMI.”

Sydney Water is Australia’s largest water utility, covering 12,700 km2 including Sydney, the Illawarra and the Blue Mountains regions.

DataCol was chosen as the solutions provider that could best meet Sydney Water’s stringent meter reading requirements.

“The DataCol team delivered a solution that was flexible and customised specifically for Sydney Water’s business requirements”, says Bruce Franks, CEO of the DataCol Group.

Implementing DataCol’s SevenX system has enabled Sydney Water to improve and simplify their quarterly reading cycle by providing added visibility and functionality, such as:

  1. Flexibility
  2. Wireless mobility
  3. Photos
  4. Multiple meter reading capabilities
  5. Notes notifications
  6. Dashboard
  7. GPS

Although added confidence, efficiency and functionality have been the outcomes of the SevenX rollout, the real success x-factor throughout this process has been the strong partnership between Sydney Water and DataCol.
