Installing standalone substation automation, SCADA, Automatic Meter Reading (AMR), Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI), Outage Management System (OMS) and other control center applications often by itself delivers huge benefits to utilities in efficiently managing and operating their electrical infrastructure. However, this is just the tip of the iceberg when compared to the benefits these systems can deliver when they operate in an integrated fashion. While the integration costs add up to only a fraction of the original cost of the standalone automation systems, the benefits usually far outweigh these costs, thereby accelerating the Return on Investments (ROI) of both the integration as well as the original system investments.
The dashboard your employees need to succeed:
The “next frontier” at most utilities is quality integration and information presentation that give personnel the information they need and customers the service they expect. Power System Engineering, Inc. (PSE) is working with its clients to take them to the next level. As an independent consultant, PSE is knowledgeable about the leading suppliers of solutions for information systems and applications across the enterprise. We make the most out of what suppliers are delivering to our clients.
Do your systems lack the ability to deliver the reports you expect?
Do your customer service representatives have the information they need to answer customer questions and respond to requests?
Are you leveraging the capability of your SCADA system, AMR system, OMS system, and others?
Which of your suppliers are realistically in the business of delivering solutions that cut across multi-vendor systems?
Have you considered that the key to getting the best value from your technology investments may require a new approach?
Can your utility maintain for the long-term all the technical people needed to implement and support ever-changing technology, so you can conquer the “next frontier”?
PSE is specifically prepared to partner with you to collaborate with suppliers and utility staff to design and implement interfaces that work well.
As a leading independent consultant of automation and information technology for electric utilities, PSE is in the business of filling in the gaps to leverage your information technology investments. Our roots are not those of a software company but of an organization that supports our clients in the areas of technology, utility operations, engineering, financing, and management. It is this foundation and supplier independence that allows PSE to partner with our clients to help them implement a “best practices” solution.
