Aim

The project, led by Wheatley Solutions and sponsored by Bristol Water, trialled a hub which makes it easier for wholesaler operations desks to access meter asset, location and consumption data before dispatching an engineer to complete a bilateral task. 

The project also trialled a complementary smartphone app which helped engineers in the field to locate the meter using a direction and proximity indicator. The app also allowed the engineers to send back reads and any changes and corrections to the meter's details and locations whilst in the field. The trial also included the option to use Blicker AI, a tool that could obtain a meter read from a photograph.

You can find more information on the app on their website here.

Project updates

The summary and final report were published in June 2024. User feedback indicated strong support for the hub and discussions are underway on its future use.
