SUMS Portal

SUMS Portal

White labelling the SUMS portal – Subscribing to a white label version of the SUMS portal—customised to reflect unique business branding and identity—delivers all the power and value of the utilities management portal to customers without having to embark on a large internal IT project with hefty development and support costs.

Interfacing with internal systems – Once the utility data is stored in the SUMS portal it can be forwarded via FTP or email to other back-end systems, such as billing or network operations software.

Unlimited, customisable alerts – Receive early notification of unusual patterns or system usage with alerts delivered via email or SMS, so problems can be detected and addressed before becoming customer or operational issues.

Data Logging

Data Logging

Suite of data logging technologies – To combat the many challenges in gathering data from meters from a variety of manufacturers, of varying age and model type, and with different pulse outputs and interfaces, it is important to have access to a range of data logging solutions that are both simple and cost effective to install and maintain.

Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) – Individual meters can be monitored using wired or wireless network data loggers, capable of accurately interfacing with several hundred devices in real-time.

Temporary logging of customer sites – The SUMS XL data logger is very simple to install, relocate and configure, making it an ideal solution for monitoring problem sites that would benefit from temporary data logging with the aim to establish actual usage patterns.

Business Intelligence

Business Intelligence

Interactive, customised reporting tools — SUMS leverages the power of Yellowfin Business Intelligence software to deliver robust analytics reporting. Dashboards customised to reflect internal metrics makes data more meaningful and useful to decision makers on the business and operations teams.

Targeting high water users – Rolling out small battery powered SUMS XL data loggers to high-volume users, is an effective way of identifying potential problems and reducing load of infrastructure, while increasing customer engagement and retention.

Performance benchmarking – By gathering and analysing data across the community of actual users, realistic and relevant KPIs can be established to benchmark user performance and inform cost reduction incentives.
Ultimately, by improving how valuable resources are managed, utility providers can achieve significant resource savings, decrease negative environmental impacts, and proactively manage risk and resource security issues.

FAQs

  • Why use SUMS for AMR and billing?

    We are proud to say that our AMR system is actually automatic—sending data directly to the SUMS portal and viewable from your web browser—meaning meter techs don’t have to come on site and you can reduce errors from transcribing readings. Whether using a wireless or wired network, our data loggers are accurate, reliable, and cost effective to install with very little required maintenance.

    We can also integrate to a 3rd party billing service, but do not directly bill customers.

  • What makes you better than your competitor?

    We have retained the agility of a small company and we continue to innovate as market requirements evolve. We’ve been told by clients what sets us apart is our proven reliability and accuracy of readings, ease of integration to existing billing systems, our willingness to collaborate on complex projects, and the simplicity and clarity of our SUMS portal and analytics reporting. These qualities have led some of Australia’s major utilities companies to replace existing systems they were unsatisfied with for ours.

    We pride ourselves in our partnerships but of course you don’t have to take our word for it. We are happy to provide an appropriate reference or set up a 3-month trial to show you why we deserve your business.

  • How will SUMs help add value to my business?

    From customer engagement to more efficient operations to strategic resource savings, we offer a variety of solutions to help you achieve your business objectives. For example, robust interactive dashboards powered with advanced analytics allow your business operations teams to better manage maintenance, improve continuity of service, and increase water quality. Similarly, identifying potential leaks in the network before they become a customer issue can save cost, reduce downtime and improve customer relations.

    White labelling the SUMS portal adds value to your customers by offering simple access to their data and providing cross-utility insights.

Managing stock water was a major challenge at Gostwyck until Paul Marsh and his team came along. Not wasting water and getting on top of any leaks quickly was a difficult job that needed a lot of chasing around and guess work. – Philip Attard,
