Schneider Electric

incorporated Primestone Corp. PrimeRead software into its products to help utilities with automated collection and management of metering data. The multivendor, multinetwork software is said to support a full complement of current communications network technologies and meter types, enabling the use of new technologies as they emerge.
PrimeRead software enables simpler, more flexible data exchange with corporate information technology systems for billing, operations and customer information with a modern relational database, eliminating the need to maintain an obscure, obsolete database structure or proprietary file formats, says Schneider Electric.
Reporting capabilities set the software apart from the competition, company says; utilities can create and schedule unlimited reports with standard reporting tools, such as Crystal Reports; access more than 100 standard provided report templates; and easily e-mail or post reports to FTP sites. With its decision cube, advanced filtering, spreadsheets and graphics, for data mining. It has auto-correction capability for daylight-saving time and unlimited, customizable calendars through which utilities may perform data analysis and apply time-of-use structures. PrimeRead software complements other Schneider Electric energy and operations management offerings, including Schneider Electric’s
