Landis+Gyr signs maintenance contract with _EZ Group
At present, the system operates 43,000 metering points spread throughout the Czech Republic, Romania and Bulgaria. The new contract expands coverage to approximately 85,000 metering points, involving the calculation of nearly 300,000 load profiles, data from which will be read and used by the SAP ERP system as well as associated IT systems.
The contract, which is valid for three years, has been signed with _EZ ICT Services, which is the IT-provider for the _EZ Group with Landis+Gyr maintaining the SuperConverge system in all locations.
Martin Michek, Commercial Director of _EZ M__ení, says: “The goal of our project was to create a stable and effective structure for data acquisition and processing from the profile meters within the whole group. We have succeeded in building up a complex solution that will enable us to provide service of a higher quality and also, it is a good base for an increase in metering process effectiveness. We have achieved a very good result thanks to the common effort of the whole team which gradually fulfilled the project strategy with enormous engagement and power.”
Jaroslav Hendrych, CEO of Landis+Gyr, Czech Republic says: “This contract is an important step for Landis+Gyr, and also provides the possibility to extend the system in the future years, both in compliance with legislative changes and based on expansion of _EZ Group in other countries.”
