Swedish service provider One Nordic has selected IsMobile as a partner to rollout a million smart meters for two electricity distributors in Sweden.
 
The IsMobile smart meter rollout deployment tool has been used in several large smart meter deployment projects in northern Europe during the past five years.
 
Meter exchanges will begin in spring 2020. The projects have already started and preparations are underway.
 
The tool takes control of massive volume of work and includes integration with meter infrastructure systems, tuned processes based on years of experience, a booking portal for customer service and efficiency, optimised work order planning and driving routes, quality control of meter data, follow-up statistics, and logistics.
 
A key driver for a deployment project is to get a high hit-rate for the first end-customer appointment, which is specifically addressed within the IsMobile SMR deployment tool.
 
“As part of our large rollout projects of the next generation of smart meters, we need a modern and effective tool for managing all stages of a meter exchange project,” said Anders Malmberg, managing director at One Nordic Mätteknik. “Together with IsMobile, we therefore implement their proven smart meter rollout tool to streamline the meter exchange process and take advantage of all built-in functions.”
 
The rollout of the modern energy meters should be seen in the light of a massive conversion to a digital and more sustainable society. The meters allow a higher degree of network optimisation, while making everyday life easier for the end users. The meters also allow end users to become energy producers themselves and sell the energy they do not need.
 
”The implementation of the smart grid is really happening now,” said Mikael Bäckman, CEO at IsMobile. “I’m both humble and proud to see how our smart meter rollout tool plays a vital role in the transition into a greener society.”

With its nationwide organisation and local knowledge, it takes responsibility for and delivers services to energy producers, distributors and energy users.
