Michael Prideaux, Managing Director of Dean & Reddyhoff Marinas Ltd, commented:
“We wanted to choose a utility system that put the customer experience right at the very heart of the design of the system.
“We chose BerthMaster Online for two reasons, firstly what we were looking for was a really robust physical infrastructure, the second thing we were looking for was a system that we would confidently know would last us the next 20 years.
“Because technology is moving so quickly we wanted to take a leap ahead and go for the most advanced metering system that was available to us.”
Michael continued: “The other key feature is of course there is no need to read the meters ever again. The system has been so well designed; it is so slick that it is transforming both the customer experience and the operational side for us.
“I am very confident that this will be the go to product for the next 10 years, I can’t see anything else on the market that is available getting close to it.”
