After signing the relevant agreement, the cooperation agreed upon at the beginning of 2018 between Diehl Metering and the young, multi-award-winning Austrian company Symvaro has now progressed into the operative phase.
Diehl Metering, one of the world’s leading solution providers for planning and implementing Smart Metering projects, and Symvaro, with its innovative software-as-a-service solution for utilities – WATERLOO – will act as independent partners.
For more than 20 years, Diehl Metering has been using its in-house IZAR RADIO technology to reliably gather data from communicative measuring devices in the field and transmit this data to its IZAR software platform. In this way, Diehl Metering solutions create a continuous data stream – from the measuring device to monitoring, data management and analysis. Water and energy utilities can thus obtain accurate due-date values on moving in/out dates – simply and efficiently via mobile readings or fixed network.
Young company Symvaro has been very successful in Germany and Austria with WATERLOO, which stands out thanks to – among other things – its great user-friendliness. The software solution provides utilities with support for topics such as replacing meters and having non-communicative meters read by either technicians or customers themselves.
For Diehl Metering, Symvaros’ software is the perfect complement to its comprehensive IZAR software solution and supports the Diehl Group subsidiary in the digitalisation of metering-relevant processes for utilities and municipal utilities – two examples of this would be reading and replacing meters.
The digitalisation of the metering industry provides suppliers and municipal utilities with an abundance of added value. This enables, for example, considerably increased efficiency in reading, billing and service processes. By detecting leaks early, damages and the unnecessary waste of resources can be effectively avoided.
Various media have already reported on the cooperation between Diehl Metering and Symvaro. Read the ZfK’s article about it here, in the German Magazine for Municipal Utilities.
