DB Microware Inc., a subsidiary of Neptune Technology Group, has announced that its Automated Route Control System (ARCS™) installation at Georgia Power has been completed. The system includes extensive customisation to allow for the real-time re-routing of meter reading routes without adversely affecting the utility’s customer information system. This functionality is fully integrated with the existing meter reading system.

ARCS is a software tool that allows utilities to better manage available resources. The system is compatible with the file structures of all commercial handheld meter reading systems, and several interfaces to the billing system are constructed for each new ARCS user.
