Feasibility & Design
Vested in Your Utility’s Success
Making the switch to smart technology provides great benefits for a utility and its customers. However, choosing the right total solution can be difficult. All too often, we hear from utilities whose recently-upgraded system is failing because proper research was not done by a qualified expert prior to implementation. In order for expectations to be met and goals achieved, any proposed program must be carefully studied, customized, and planned.
Determining Your Needs
In order to provide a fully custom program design, it is important for UMS to understand objectives, expectations, and limitations. Once needs are assessed and understood—whether provided by the client or discovered through a feasibility study—UMS is able to define and recommend a custom solution. Our experience and vendor-independence enables us to recommend the best mix of hardware, software, processes, and management to help your utility accomplish its goals.
Your Solution, Your Way
Utilities, municipalities, and cities are not created equal – and your solution should be no different. UMS provides expertise on every aspect of fixed network solutions (including AMI/AMR, smart city technologies, SCADA, and LED street lights), data analytics, customer engagement, and billing services for utilities. Our custom program design service gives your utility the ability to pick and choose the services you want, need, and can afford.
Whether you need to retrofit a few hundred meters, upgrade your entire system, or simply need program management services, UMS is your partner of choice.
