SyncAssistThe managed services solution that simplifies AMI operations.
When utilities deploy advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), data flows across meter-to-cash systems and needs to be accurate and kept in “sync.” When there’s an issue, an “exception” is generated which needs to be resolved so that the customer can be billed on time. Each day there are synchronization exceptions, data collection exceptions, stale meters, tampers, invalid time flags, usage spikes, swapped meters, and more. And if there are delays, the exceptions can quickly pile up and affect revenue.
SyncAssist is the managed services solution that simplifies AMI operations. Our operators ensure meter-to-cash operations continue without interruption so that bill-ready data is delivered accurately and on time. Util-Assist has been delivering this service for more than a dozen years, and our experts offer deep knowledge of data flows and processes to optimize your utility operations.
