It is time to take advantage of Itron’s reading system upgrade from MVRS to FCS software for qualified users. Free FCS software upgrades are being offered from Itron through the end of 2020 and MVRS support will officially end on December 31, 2021.
The Avanti Company has three certified FCS installers that have performed hundreds of successful Itron Reading System installations.
These installers will install and train Utility users to boost the performance of this enhanced reading system software for current and future meter reading needs.
FCS is a versatile software solution that allows manual, automatic meter reading (AMR) or advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) systems to be used.
It can import and assign routes for handheld and mobile collection devices, manage field data, and schedule routes for billing to be exported.
The FCS handheld application program provides field workers with an efficient means of collecting meter readings, other important data, and using reliable mobile devices to conduct appropriate field work.
The base price for an Avanti led Itron MVRS to FCS software upgrade is $5,000 and it includes the installation as well as essential training. Please contact Avanti today to schedule the FCS upgrade by calling 800-284-5231 or sending an email to [email protected]
