The use of analog gas-, water-, and electricity meters is global. To bill its customers, utility companies need to extract the consumption and therefore constantly changing data. They have implemented manual processes involving their customers or / and their employees, that represent not only a bad user experience (time waste, repetition, low added value), but are also prone to errors. This inefficient process of data aquisition is costly for the company.
There is indeed a global trend towards smart meter rollout. But this expected rollout requires bilions of dollar in investments, without guarantee of the future proofness of the implemented technology.
