And as Blicker allows every customer to collect meter information by themselves, house visits by specialised meter inspectors become a thing of the past.

At the same time, this also greatly benefits the customers who no longer need to stay at home to receive visiting service engineers. 

Enriched database with extensive insights
Another benefit for utility companies is that current meter administration databases can be enriched with automatic readout of other meter information such as serial numbers, meter type and model. Besides, this extra information gives valuable insights that can be used for strategic asset management decisions like meter maintenance and replacement plannings.
