Christchurch, 5 February 2014 - DataCol, a leading meter reading and data collection company for the meter reading and data processing of approximately 20,000 commercial, industrial and residential meters has won a major contract in Dunedin.

The council saw the benefits of utilising the experience and expertise that DataCol brings with it. “The council has a clear focus on delivering best value services across the organisation. Awarding the contract to DataCol to read our 4000 commercial and industrial meters represents procuring best value services for the City” says Dr Laura McElhone, Group Manager Water and Waste Services, Dunedin City Council.
