Balloon Read is a mobile application specially designed and developed for the remote recording of the water meter readings with the Walk-by/Drive-by method. With Balloon Read, one person can collect hundreds of meter readouts within minutes, either on foot or by driving a vehicle. In this way, the organizations save time, financial and human resources.
Technicians equipped with a mobile device (phone, tablet) record the readings easily, quickly and safely, thus avoiding time-consuming handwritten entries and manual data transfer from paper to digital databases. Moreover, human error is avoided, which up until now was difficult to monitor.
