North Georgia EMC (NGEMC), an electric cooperative that serves seven counties in Georgia, has announced the completed installation of smart meters across its territory. The announcement comes six months ahead of schedule.

Herndon, Va.-based Apex CoVantage says its advanced ProField software was integral to the meter installation process. According to the company, ProField has the ability to streamline network management, document the meter transfer process and test problem areas.

"With the help of Apex technicians and ProField," says David Creekmore, engineering and technical consultant at NGEMC, "we were able to address 30 years of maintenance in a matter of 30 weeks."

Landis+Gyr was also a partner in the project. Jon Bruschi, program manager at Landis+Gyr, notes, "Every single meter that was shipped, delivered, installed or transferred to NGEMC was accounted for and reconciled, a testament to ProField's robust inventory management system."
