AMR or AMI: Which Makes More Sense?

AMR or AMI: Which Makes More Sense?

Prior to the introduction of automatic meter reading (AMR, also known as automated meter reading), water utilities had to do everything by hand. With AMR came the opportunity to utilize technology to reduce costs and improve productivity.
