Symbiosa ChangeOut AMI Deployment Technology Implemented at Lacreek Electric
Symbiosa has completed a successful implementation of ChangeOut AMI Deployment Technology at Lacreek Electric in Martin, SD. ChangeOut provides a technology infrastructure that eliminates the need for paper based data collection during the AMI deployment process. ChangeOut leverages state of the art ruggedized GPS devices with built in bar code scanning and digital photo technology. This allows Lacreek to collect GPS coordinates on existing consumers and record all pertinent meter change data using ChangeOut. ChangeOut also takes a photo of the final meter reading so that there is no question whether the reading was taken correctly. In the office ChangeOut integrates with Lacreek's NISC CIS system eliminating manual data entry which in turn reduces data entry errors and streamlines the deployment process.
