Atlanta-based Red Clay Consulting and Oracle have completed implementation of Red Clay's SmartGridONE (SG1) offering powered by Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management at the Florida-based utility Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC).

Built upon Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management 2.0, Red Clay Consulting's SG1 is a flexible, affordable and complete meter-to-cash meter data management (MDM) solution that helps utilities lower their total cost of ownership, reduce implementation risk and accelerate their MDM deployment, the companies say.

With Red Clay's SG1 powered by Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management, the OUC went live in less than six months. The MDM system will enable daily meter reads that increase billing accuracy to help improve customer billing and revenue protection.

"Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management was the most complete and cost-effective solution for our business needs, and with Red Clay's unique appliance approach and proven track record of Oracle Utilities Meter Data Management implementations, it was an ideal pairing," says Chip Merriam, the OUC’s vice president of legislative and regulatory compliance.
