Western Power Distribution (WPD) a UK utility that distributes electricity to 2.5 million customers, has chosen 360 Technologies’ Dynamic Scheduling Engine to schedule the work of the company’s meter reading personnel. When fully implemented, the software will introduce efficiencies, better resource management and proactive planning capabilities.

360 was able to run historic meter reading requirements through the Dynamic Scheduling Engine and validate the results against the utility’s manual processes. This project marks the company’s entry into the utilities market in the UK, where the meter reading process has become much more complicated since the energy industry was privatised.
