Columbia, MD, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM)

RouteSmart for ArcGIS 2013 with an automated meter reading (AMR) routing solution that will allow utility operations to fully realize the savings of AMR by dramatically decreasing distances traveled, has been announced by RouteSmart Technologies.

The RouteSmart for ArcGIS 2013 with AMR routing solution allows utilities with AMR meters to input ERT read ranges based on manufacturer specs and observed ranges to create driving paths that minimize the number of streets needed to travel to read all meters. Utilities should be able to achieve reductions in route time and travel distances by 50% or more when ERT ranges are 750 feet or greater.

Once route plans have been created, export functionality provides field crews with in-vehicle navigation via TomTom that is seamlessly integrated with the RouteSmart AMR routing solution.

RouteSmart for ArcGIS, operating within Esri's ArcGIS platform, provides a complete set of tools for optimizing utility meter reading routes.
