Denver, CO, September 9, 2008 – San Antonio Water System (SAWS) has selected Enspiria Solutions, a leading provider of consulting and systems integration services to the utility, cable and government sectors, to provide consulting services for their Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Project Initiative. The AMI project will include vendor selection for AMI, MDMS and meter installation, and will study the viability of an AMI collaboration strategy between SAWS and other city agencies.
The benefits of the AMI project will be realized throughout many parts of the organization.
