Automated Meter Reader
Unlike traditional meter reading, the AMR automatically sends the energy consumption to the supplier. By directly connecting the device to the meter, Crown Gas & Power receives the necessary data, allowing them to view the accurate meter billing. Aside from reducing the hassle of manually writing the bill, it also seizes estimated bills. In addition, the gas and electricity supplier can also post the customer’s consumption on their Web Portals, letting the user view and download a copy of their consumption hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly. By being updated, the business can manage and control their energy consumption and costs effectively.
This is advisable for businesses with over 732,000 kWh gas consumption as Crown Gas & Power is legally asked to install the device. This is in compliance with the Governments Advanced Meter Obligation. However, even small businesses that consume less gas can also take advantage of this.
An Automated Meter Reader works by connecting the meter to the metered consumption which uses GPRS technology to send the data automatically to the energy provider.
Meanwhile, manual meter readings can be submitted in three ways: over the phone (0161 762 7744), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or online (http://www.crowngas.co.uk/)
Benefits of AMR
An AMR meter is an Advanced Meter Readings, meaning you take the meter readings manually from the meter, as opposed to a smart meter that remotely reads the meter. AMR benefits the user in many ways and one of which is its capability to save time and effort. Using AMR, the customer doesn’t need to exert physical effort in reading and sending the meter as it sends data automatically. Not only does it save time and effort but also, it provides convenience.
Saving money is possible with AMR because the customer will only pay for what it is consuming. Moreover, it gives accurate billing, thus, lessening estimated bills.
In addition, taking advantage of Crown Gas & Power’s Portal lets the customer view their energy consumption. This data allows the customer to plan on how they will reduce their energy consumption and maximize their savings.
Most of the time, installing the AMR will not interrupt the supply. However, in any case of meter upgrade, the commercial partners of Crown Gas & Power will notify the customer in advance.

Consultants need to complete a TPI agreement, which means that they will work in two ways. First is as a dedicated sales contact that will work on any sales-related matters. This includes pre-negotiations and the contracts.
Once a contract has been signed, the consultant will also work as the direct customer account manager, who will handle several things such as bill validation, payments, queries, change of location, etc. The workload may sound a little bit too much but Crown Gas & Power has its own way of keeping the transactions smooth and easy.
