"Mobility will eliminate the errors that paper based systems are prone to," added Donker. "So for instance engineers will, via workflow on their mobile devices, have to record and match the right meter serial number to the right property. This is a vital customer service issue because energy use will be collected via meters remotely and you don't want to send the wrong bill to the wrong customer."
ClickSoftware is currently helping many utilities companies around the world that are seeking to monitor and reduce the consumption of energy with major smart meter rollouts.
"Stedin is planning the rollout in the Netherlands with meticulous precision and we are delighted to be a part of the project," said Dr. Moshe BenBassat, Chairman and CEO of ClickSoftware. "Smart meter deployments are being monitored closely by governments and the public. Under such close scrutiny workforce management and mobility has an important role to play by giving utilities greater certainty of a successful smart meter project. "
