Test and measurement equipment / power measurement: Apex CoVantage, a provider of smart grid technology and services, has released a return-on-investment (ROI) calculator that estimates a utility’s time and cost savings when ProField is used to manage advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) deployments.

Users of the web-based tool follow a simple, three-step process to enter details about their project’s scope and requirements. The calculator then uses this data to generate a customized report. These reports, which can be printed or shared with others, summarize ProField’s contribution to estimated productivity gains, work efficiencies and total net savings. They also feature a side-by-side comparison allowing users to see how the same project would play out if the award-winning Mobile Workforce Management technology was not implemented.

The launch of the ROI calculator comes as AMI deployments have reached an all-time high with more than 15 million meters now installed in the United States. Spending to install these meters has exceeded $4 billion as a national total.

“An AMI rollout can be a major cost for utilities and a major time constraint on future projects if the deployment is not handled effectively,” said Shashi Gupta, Apex CoVantage co-founder and president. “The ProField ROI calculator makes it simple for utilities to gain information to help them manage resources and invest wisely.”
