National Power New Zealand will focus on strategies to manage, grow and improve the utilities business.  Today’s utilities know that management and use of meter data is central to these goals.  As a result, the industry requires MDM solutions that are not only flexible and scalable, but that have been time-tested in complex global marketplaces.

Now in its third generation, LODESTAR MDM is an off-the-shelf software product that collects and manages large, complex volumes of meter data for validation, estimation, revenue protection, exception management, pre-billing, customer self-service, reporting and auditing.  LODESTAR has more than 125 global customers, and its MDM solution has been deployed at many of the world’s leading utilities.

LODESTAR is committed to ongoing investments in the research and development of significant enhancements to its MDM solutions.  The LODESTAR Meter Data Management product roadmap calls for continued development of out-of-the-box support for meter file formats, integration with leading AMI/AMR systems, and continued benchmarking and performance optimization work.
