DALLAS, TEXAS (November 5, 2010) – Nighthawk announces the release of its high level Business Case Analysis tool which helps utilities demonstrate the return on investment of targeted remote disconnect / reconnect solutions.
Scheduling truck rolls and coordinating customer care interactions for remote disconnect/reconnect and off cycle reads is expensive and time consuming. When these costs are mitigated through deployment of the Nighthawk RDM950, utilities can often demonstrate paybacks in a year or less. In a fiscal environment where full AMI business cases are increasingly difficult to justify, Nighthawk provides a way for utilities to significantly lower costs today, without large capital outlays for all endpoints.
The business case tool is located at the bottom of the www.nighthawkcontrol.com home page. Simply enter a couple of key business drivers, and Nighthawk takes care of the rest. In four business hours or less, we will provide you with an economic assessment that is customized to the inputs you provide.
Utilities benefit beyond the returns cited in the tool as a result of key features such as outage notification and the avoidance of premise access issues.
The RDM950 is a strategic solution, deployable today, yet fully extensible to future AMI installations. This makes it an excellent choice to bridge between today’s needs with tomorrow anticipated requirements. Utilities can deploy the solution anywhere from just a few to a few thousand endpoints without deployment lags and costly network/systems build outs.
