It’s important to submit regular water meter readings to ensure your bills are as accurate as possible, and your business does not pay for more water than it uses.

Submitting meter readings is undoubtedly not at the top of your to-do list, and now there’s a way you can strike it off the list completely…

Simple solutions that save time, cut costs, improve efficiency and help to achieve sustainability targets are winners in the eyes of savvy business people. So, if you haven’t already heard about Automatic Meter Reading (AMR), we can give you the lowdown...

What is AMR?

Automatic Meter Reading, (AMR), is a smart meter that is attached to your existing water meter. It regularly submits accurate meter reads for you, so you can sit back and enjoy precise billing, so you’ll never pay for more water than you use - if only everything else was that easy!

How does it work to improve efficiency?

AMR allows you to pinpoint exactly how much water your business is using and where. Once installed, AMR starts collecting data about your business water consumption patterns that you can easily track through your online portal, meaning you can very quickly take control of your business's water usage, identify opportunities for efficiencies and start making major savings.

Why it’s great

User friendly: The data is presented in user-friendly graphs, empowering you with a better understanding of your business water consumption, including comparative and historical analysis, and site-specific information for multi-site businesses. Your business can use this information to take control of its water consumption and start saving money

Leak Detection and repair: Leaks can be costly and inconvenient. Undetected or unresolved leaks can cause large water consumption charges, reduced water pressure and physical damage. Use the portal to set alarms to notify key personnel of unusual consumption activity that could be caused by leaks, so you can act fast to fix the leak and minimise damage, increased costs and business downtime.

Accurate billing: It’s important to submit regular meter readings to ensure your bills are as accurate as possible, and your business does not pay for more water than it has used. AMR takes up-to-date and accurate meter readings to make billing as precise as possible, which means no more estimated billing and reduced errors. Collecting meter reads automatically reduces the need for manual intervention in those difficult to access locations.

Water efficiency: AMR can be used to support a wider programme of water efficiency planning for your whole business. Consumption data can be used to change habits and deliver environmental and cost benefits.
