Gestalt LogoCamden, NJ, U.S.A. --- (METERING.COM) --- December 1, 2006 – Gestalt, an international professional services firm providing solutions to the energy and utility sectors, has announced the formation of its Enterprise Technologies group, that will deliver consulting and integration services for projects in the distribution automation, automated metering, and meter data management space. The move is in response to the growing demand for expertise in this area.
 
“The real value of technologies such as AMI is not simply in the meters themselves, it comes from how the data from these systems is leveraged within the organization,” said Mark Rossi, Gestalt’s Executive Vice-President, Energy & Utilities. “We're working closely with our clients to identify and implement practical solutions that leverage these technologies for areas such as demand side management, time-of-use billing and operational event tracking systems.”

Gestalt’s team has recently successfully integrated a meter data management system into a utility’s CIS system, and translated the time-of-use meter data into customer-facing utility bills. The new group will be led by Gary Murphy and Eric Smith.
