The Meter Reader subsystem acts as the interface between FlexiBill and the software provided with electronic meter reading systems. All major vendors are supported including:
In addition to the standard formats, there is also a ‘Custom Setup’ option that can be used to create single record type formats for import and export. For example, this method could be used to share reads between two separate billing authorities that have overlapping customers.
The process works as follows. In the FlexiBill meter reader software, the group of meters to read is selected by cycle or book. An ASCII file is then created. This file is read by the electronic meter reader vendor’s software and then transferred to each reader unit for input. After all reads have been compiled, the electronic meter reader vendor’s software creates a new ASCII read file. This file is then read by the FlexiBill meter reader software which attaches the reads to each account. The meter reader report is then run and, once verified, billing begins.
"Meter Reader" is part of the Spectrum line of products, developed by Harris Computer Systems.
