    Innovation:
    BEACON Advanced Metering Analytics

     

    Technology has done a lot to advance business at Brown Deer-based Badger Meter Inc. In January, the water meter manufacturer launched the BEACON Advanced Metering Analytics system for use in both residential and commercial water metering applications.

    “It’s a new approach to traditional metering systems,” said John Fillinger, director of utility marketing at Badger Meter. “The BEACON AMA provides powerful information directly to consumers.”

    The product features a customizable dashboard that provides actionable information to utility managers and consumers in order to monitor their water operations, Fillinger added.

    The company is the first in the industry to offer such a product, and the product marks the first time in company history that Badger Meter has offered a managed service.

    “We’re directly engaging the end consumer and empowering them with information they can use to detect leaks, monitor water conservation efforts and respond more effectively to consumer questions and concerns,” he said.

    The product emerged as a response to changing technology and the direct needs of customers.

    “The product strengthens our position as an industry leader in water metering technology,” Fillinger said.

    The company has signed up a backlog of customers since January, and the interest has been outstanding, Fillinger said.

    “The industry is driving this management solution,” Fillinger said. “We were first to market, but I expect this to be the new standard in 12 to 18 months.”
