HERNDON, Va., July 25, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Colquitt Electric Membership Corporation, a not-for-profit consumer-owned electric distribution system based in Moultrie, GA, has licensed Apex's ProField® technology to manage its upcoming deployment of the Landis+Gyr Gridstream® RF advanced metering system. The project, consisting of 65,000 meter exchanges within a seven-county service territory, will be the largest to date for CEMC.

ProField was designed with several feature-rich modules to give full visibility into and complete control over every aspect of field operations. "The ProField solution will greatly simplify the enormous task of changing all of our meters with a high degree of accuracy," says Milton Willis, Technical Services Supervisor at CEMC. "The feature set of camera, bar coding, GPS location and cellular modem will make the project progress smoothly." Apex CEO, Shashi Gupta, is confident that ProField will keep CEMC on track and moving toward a timely project completion. "ProField takes the guesswork out of meter deployment projects," says Gupta, "giving energy providers, like Colquitt, the ability to stay focused on core competencies - like delivering high quality, low cost electric service to valued subscribers."
