SIUGEST

Integrated Water service Management Software


General characteristics

SiuGEST Software is the result of experience acquired by GEST in the years of integrated water service management for various beneficiaries (town halls, public water services etc..). This experience was used in the development of management and represents the element which differentiates management software from similar software proposed by competitors on the reference market. Its achievement is mainly related to the management need of in-house GEST services and later suggested to customers.

The interface is simple and intuitive, easy to consult and able to accelerate the operations of the staff in charge with the utility in front-office.

In order to satisfy the needs of its own customers, GEST proposes the sale of software with different licenses of use by management modules.

Meter reading Module

Meter reading Module is proposed in the three basic, standard and professional versions.

The basic version includes only the functions related to the timing of data between the back-office operators and the operative field staff. The standard and professional versions integrate other functions for the drawing up of reading rotations, consultation of users’ data and reading, viewing of photographic documentation acquired in the photo-reading campaigns, mapping representation of meter’s position of the user, and analysis tools and statistic graphics about the work done.

Billing Module

In the full software version it includes all the functionalities necessary to the manager for the management of integrated water service. In this version were implemented, apart from the reading module in professional version, the billing modules and management of supply contracts which allow the generation of water register, invoices, registration of payments made and carrying out the procedures of data query for the recovery of payments overdue to users.

The Software includes in its inside other functions of statistic printing and customized reports and fee management.

GESTGEO

Software for consultation and optimization of geographical coordinates and logical reading rotations


General characteristics

GESTGEO is a software developed by GEST for optimization of geographical coordinates detected on the field by the operators responsible for data. The interface includes different graphical functions which allow for the checking of reliability of data obtained, improvement of precision and optimization of logical reading rotations for reading campaigns.

The mapping consultation functions allow for the viewing of assembly of points corresponding to the position of meters in the territory and highlights by different colouring of pushpin the utilities filtered by rotation, by abnormality, by type, by consumptions or criteria defined by customer.

In the software there are also present analysis tools which allow the definition of an area and identification of utilities belonging to that area, returning statistic reports which can be displayed on vertical depending on customer’s needs. Advanced Network Analysis procedures based on algorithms developed and projected by IT sector of GESt company guarantee the improvement of logical rotations with identification of the best route to follow.

The Software represents one of the strengths in the management of GESt services because by improving the quality of data bank it is able to increase production and the operational quality of field teams.

MrGEST for TABLET

Software for detection of reading, photo-reading and remote reading for Tablet


General characteristics

In tablet version the MrGEST software, apart from the guarantee of all functions of the system developed for handheld computer, it was developed to guarantee the mapping support in any operation phase.

Actually, a large part of the screen is occupied by the viewing of cartographic map which shows the position of the operator on the field and all the information of users to detect. The use of cartography in the support of operation activities improves a lot the productivity and quality of service by allowing the operator to easily identify the utilities to detect and those detected and reading abnormalities recorded.

The capacity of the software to execute at the same time functions of reading, photo-reading and remote reading makes the operating flexibility be the distinctive element of systems proposed by GEST able to optimize even the remote reading operations by Walk-by. The operator is able with this instrument to identify immediately the utility still unreceived from cartographic point of view highlighted by a different colour from the other ones.

GEST SMART METER

Application for control of consumptions on smartphone and tablet


General characteristics

Water invoices can be sometimes responsible for unpleasant surprises, often because of problems related to small leaks which escape our control, but are able to generate huge costs in the time elapsed between one invoice and another. In most cases we realize that we have a loss only when we get the invoice from our water distributor.

GEST SMART METER is an application intended to solve these problems and to constantly control the consumptions and costs recorded by your Smart Meter.
By a simple and intuitive interface you can view the daily, weekly and annual consumptions, and can identify in due course the potential problems with your installation. You can see not only how much you consumed, but also the cost of this consumption, computed based on the fees of competent water distributor. All data is kept on a Cloud server which contains the history of all consumptions, allowing the comparison between the current data and the previous data to compare and understand the evolution of consumptions over time. in order to simplify and guide the understanding of data, the interface shows: average consumptions, the ratio between the current consumptions and the previous ones, the maximum and minimum values recorded in an interval (days, weeks, months or years) showing not only consumptions but also their economic value.
To these functions you will find attached Goal, a function which allows the determination of an expense threshold you propose to achieve. Thus, the application will tell you day by day how much you gain or lose compared to this preset goal.

SELLING

GEST is a provider of data gathering software system and a reseller company of portable reading devices of different brands and national distributors of the remote reading technology called Homerider Systems and of the sensors, the long-distance monitoring systems and of the analysis of the water quality Endetec.

RENTING

GEST makes it possible for the contractual third parties to rent out the company owned hardware and software systems to be used in the field as long as the company functions as a service provider. The equipment can be rented out for a limited period that coincides with the reading cycles.
