ACS has developed it's own hand held meter reading software, which works with the Psion Workabout hand held units. This system will allow you to key readings directly into the hand held unit and then download these readings back to the PC for calculations. The cost of this software is not included in the base price of the Utility Billing system, but the cost is very reasonable. See Pricing for more details.
