The conference is now hosted entirely in an online format, allowing attendees the flexibility to log in to view single presentations or multiple, all without leaving the office. The best part? Registration is FREE for all attendees!

Session 4 – Metering, Smart Water & Beyond

Titled “Metering, Smart Water & Beyond,” Session 4 will begin at 2 p.m. ET on May 22 and will include three 40-minute presentations. The session will kick off with a presentation from Robert Gustin, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Systems, at Neptune Technology Group. Gustin will discuss current uses for advanced metering infrastructure and expanding applications, as well as new approaches to Network-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service applications.

Next up will be a presentation on Optimizing Your Metering Infrastructure and IT Integration, presented by Parvathi Murali and Stephen Nees of UtiliWorks Consulting. This presentation will offer the consultant’s perspective on the wide-ranging challenges water utilities can face when getting started with smart metering implementation, and what utilities can do to make these systems as efficient as possible. That presentation will run from at 2:40 – 3:20 p.m. ET.

To finish up Session 4, Jeff Lipton, senior vice president for marketing and business development with WaterSmart Software, will discuss how initiatives such as data transparency, customer outreach and communicating payment issues can lead to better revenue capture for utilities.
