    Information

    Meter Processing is a utility to enter meter reads and apply the related charges to the Reservation Accounts.

    Utility Meters enable users to record meter reads and charge for utilities on an Area.

    Meters can be setup with individual utility accounts for Electricity, Gas or Water with the option to create meter reading charges on the Accommodation Account.

    Meter Reads can be processed on mobile, tablet or desktop including printing or emailing Utility Statements.

    Meter Reads can be entered and saved to process at a later date.



    The Current Read Date cannot be a future date.

    Category, Area, Reservation & Rate are default System Labels that can be customised.



    Users will require Security Profile access to use this feature.
