Landis+Gyr Adds Advanced Billing and Enhanced Gas Monitoring Features to MDMS
Version 4.1 supports gas pressure and temperature monitoring
ATLANTA, GA. – April 18, 2019 – Landis+Gyr (LAND.SW) announced the release of MDMS 4.1, the newest version of its meter data management system software that adds features for gas utilities and also includes enhanced support for consumption interval billing and complex rebilling operations.
Landis+Gyr’s MDMS will now be able to process data from Gridstream® GPR-PT sensors used to record pressure and temperature data for gas transport customers. In addition to validation of this data, the MDMS is capable of flagging events to trigger field activities through service orders if necessary.

Beyond support for the GPR-PT sensor, other updates in MDMS 4.1 offer improved complex billing features such as:
- Cancel Rebill functionality that aids in rebilling scenarios caused by swapped or switched meters, asset failure and energy theft cases.
- Enhanced support for consumption interval billing to calculate complex rates, time-of-use and net metering services from interval data without requiring adjustments to the meter.
