The system can be provided as AMM only, but also integrated with ZONOS™ Meter Data Management (MDM). This enables an easy start with smart metering. The system can consequently grow in functionality with the technical, commercial and procedural requirements of a client. Benefits include an extremely high performance, lower data volumes and less complex interfaces. Implementation and investment costs are lower and so are also the operating costs. The support of various meters and communication technologies enables a customized and cost-effective roll-out. It is also possible to start with ZONOS™ AMM/MDM as a stand-alone solution and then gradually realize full end-to-end processes through integration with other systems (e.g. ERP, customer care & billing, NIS etc.).
