Meter Swap


Meter Swap Overview:

Compuatpole’s Meter Swap is a fully automated meter swapping application. Your inspectors will be focusing on what they are entering rather than how to enter it thanks to our simple and intuitive interface. It all starts with the latest version of our Meter Swap program and from there we customize the entire application to suit for needs.

Meter Swap’s interface allows you gather all data necessary to log your meter changes. You can load preloaded data into your program so that your workers need only to ‘fill in the blanks’. Your inspectors can easily view and edit previous records thanks to our simple Enter-Browse-Edit interface. A popular feature of Meter Swap is the ability to take images of the old meters from within the program. No need for a separate camera and complicated image file logging, Meter Swap handles it all. Our image preview provides zoom-in suport so that your workers can verify the quality and focus of the image. This ensures clear pictures as verification of the off reading for the old meter before it was disconnected. Like all Computapole applications Meter Swap provides full field validation minimizing data entry mistakes in the field. Built in support for barcode scanning allows your inspectors to scan a meter and automatically bring up its associated data. Keep track of failed attempts to make installs due to lack of access to the meter via Meter Swap’s ‘three strike’ system.

Meter Swap allows you to log your meter’s Global Positioning System (GPS) location for use in your GIS systems. Our GPS is very reliable giving you new readings quickly and accurately. Computapole’s GPS Manager does away with your GPS connection headaches. Mapping can be incorporated into your Meter Swap program to aid your workers in finding the meters they need to change out.

Like all Computapole mobile applications data recovery in the event of hardware failure is a top priority. We silently back up your data each time you save a record protecting you against database file corruption. Our mobile applications can be re-installed in the field directly from your memory card reducing down time in the field in the event of hardware problems. can be re-installed right

The PC program will handle all the meter changes, automatic program updates to the device, and easy report generation. Our PC applications are loaded with features that reduce mistakes and make your job easier.

With our PC applications all of your reports are just a few clicks away.

Need a quick listing of all unchanged meters? Maybe you want to look at all the meters that were changed on Main Street? A couple clicks and you will have your reports on screen from which you can generate PDF or Excel documents, or simply print a hardcopy.
