Con-X job management software is used extensively within the Energy and Utilities industry. Why? Con-X gives you high Quality of data. Meter reads are treated like a bank transaction, you have to be right, you can’t quote somebody at the wrong price. Con-X allows you to do those calculations, you can error check and validate your meter reads before closing off a job and once a job is closed off, it’s instantly available to the person in the back office, so if you have done something wrong either installing a meter or reading a meter, because you are able to take pictures, the error will be immediately caught, and you can rectify the situation right away.
Time to respond is another big thing, this is an industry where regulations can change, with Con-X it is literally a case of the business user going into the portal and right clicking and adding an additional task, adding an extra question, making something compulsory which wasn’t compulsory before to complete the task, and you’ve completed your regulatory requirements, and the next time you open the job up in the field you will have new fields, new text boxes, etc so it’s easy to implement change.
About how Con-X can assist your business
As a significant player in the New Zealand Metering Industry, Wells Metering Services had just undertaken a five-year programme to upgrade close to a quarter of a million electricity meters to smart meters for one of the largest operators.

Using the simple Con-X website tools, we were able to create a meter replacement workflow consisting of safety, quality and compliance tasks - all within a matter of days!
