Field Collection System (FCS)

Field Collection System for Meter Data Collection and Management from Metering and Technology Solutions

Field Collection System (FCS) is field collection software using a state-of-the-art, open-architecture software solution that works with handheld and mobile technologies to provide seamless integration with existing enterprise billing systems, advanced meter data management systems and ERT meter endpoints. Field collection software combines all the best features from decades of experience with meter reading software and innovative new features that will fulfill your meter data collection needs, now and into the future.

The Field Collection System software imports and assigns routes to mobile collection devices, manages data collected in the field and prepares routes to be exported for billing. The field collection software provides field technicians with an efficient means for collecting meter readings and related work in the field using rugged mobile devices

This field collection software uses communications based on Internet Protocol (IP) for a flexible array of backhaul options, such as wired and wireless networks, public telephone, and broadband Internet. IP-based communications can transfer data over four times faster than collection systems that require serial communications, providing the same advanced performance of high-end mainframe- based meter reading applications.
