Turn your raw meter readings into insights and reliable consumption data.

Meter Data Management (MDM) plays a crucial role in the energy industry. It involves gathering, organizing, and analysing meter data from utility meters. The purpose of MDM is to guarantee precise and timely billing, as well as to assist with advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) projects, demand response programs, and other energy management efforts.

The MECOMS 365 Meter Data Management (MDM) empowers you by giving insights in your data quality and lets you control efficiently the information flood. It is a full-fledged MDM system, handling all aspects of meter data collection, validation and calculation to turn your raw meter readings into reliable consumption data.

Meter Reading Management

MECOMS 365 has the necessary functionalities to receive metering data from various sources acting as a meter brand-agnostic system. On the one hand, are end-customers able to provide their index values via a Self-Service portal. Our Smart Data Application Server on the other hand allows you to collect smart metering data directly from metering headend systems or via an integration. On top, the platform allows you to create tours and send out your meter readers to collect the reads in the field.

Meter Information Management

Meter Information Management allows you to store the all the information of the meter itself; not only how the meter should be read but also the different capabilities of the meter, serial number, version, firmware, installation location, etc.

Validation, Estimation and Calculation

Your meter readings that are received via various channels can be stored and validated in MECOMS 365. A first validation will happen to make sure the incoming data is valid. In a user-friendly manner, existing business validation rules can be changed, or new rules can be created, without additional development. Afterwards, the meter readings can be converted into consumptions (e.g.: day, month, aggregated, peak, etc.). Various calculation factors can be used to calculate the correct consumption, such as daily temperatures, SLP/EAV’s, pressure, iron/copper losses, calorific value, etc.

Smart Metering Management

The MDM module provides you a two-way communication with smart meters and is able to process large volumes of smart metering data. MECOMS 365 also handles Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) as a core process. The smart metering solution can easily integrate with existing systems, such as MV90, but also communicates with other automatic meters.

Exception and anomalies management 

As part of the validation and calculation processes, the MECOMS 365 solution can also manage exceptions and anomalies coming from the metering data. Estimations are, for instance, automatically calculated as a substitute for missing data based on consumption profiles or historical data. When other anomalies are automatically spotted from the data, these can easily be identified and an agent specialist can take the necessary actions based on the data available.

Consumption data analytics

Businesses are more and more recognizing the value of metering and consumption data to obtain insight into asset anomalies, changing consumer consumption patterns or managing the status of grid operation. MECOMS 365 acts as a data hub of meter data, natively treated for billing purposes, but also able to provide this data to end customers via online portals, to 3rd parties of other utility applications.

Meter Data Management Software for energy and utilities.

Meter Data Management (MDM) plays a crucial role in the energy industry. It involves gathering, organizing, and analyzing meter data from utility meters. The purpose of MDM is to guarantee precise and timely billing, as well as to assist with advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) projects, demand response programs, and other energy management efforts.

To achieve successful MDM, energy companies must invest in specialized software and data processing systems. The software must be capable of handling large amounts of data from various sources, such as smart meters, manual readings, and customer information systems. The data must be validated, processed, and stored in a secure database where it can be used to make informed business decisions and improve customer service.

The right technology and infrastructure are vital for effective MDM. Energy companies should select an MDM solution that is flexible, scalable, and can integrate with existing systems and data sources. The solution should also be user-friendly with accessible data analysis tools.

Data security and privacy are also critical components of MDM. Energy companies must ensure that the meter data they collect and store is protected from unauthorized access and misuse. This can be achieved by implementing strong security measures like encryption and authentication, as well as following privacy regulations in the industry.

In summary, Meter Data Management is a critical aspect of the energy industry, helping companies to accurately bill customers, support AMI projects, and meet customer needs. By utilizing advanced technology and best practices, energy companies can improve their MDM processes.
