A custom-made mobile gas-meter reading system was developed for an important gas distributor. The system employs Falcon portable batch terminals, Zebra portable thermal printers and GSM communication modems. Each worker is equipped with a portable terminal with application software which communicates with the company’s information system via a GSM modem. The terminal is connected, via a GSM modem and TCP/IP communication, to the company’s ftp server from which it receives the list of readings for the following period. At the same time, the data on the performed readings are transferred to the head office. All data which are necessary for taking the readings are displayed on the terminal. Customer identification is carried out by scanning the identification number in the form of barcode on the gas-meter label. After the gas-meter reading is entered, the quantity is compared to the statistically expected one in order to eliminate any mistake. In the event of absence of the customer of inaccessibility of the gas-meter, a self-adhesive label with a call to report the reading altogether will all necessary contact data is printed by the Zebra portable printer. In the event of a damaged identification label on the gas-meter, the operator has an opportunity to print a new one using his portable printer.

The system significantly increases labour productivity in the course of meter reading, it minimizes gas meter reading errors, eliminates the necessity of printing any paper lists. Time saving resulting from the fact that the workers who take the readings do not have to come to the company’s head office to receive any materials and to submit data, as was the case in the past, is also important. The system is fully integrated in the company’s information system and the retrieved data need not be copied from the paper lists.
