Our utility is looking to implement Smart Meters/MDMS along with potentially a new billing system.
We are starting to meet with consultants and I was hoping for some suggested questions to ask potential contractors.
We use SQL 2012 and have an ELA. We are a small electric utility with <10,000 customers.
We don't have any existing views/ties to our current CIS, and we don't have anything like ArcFM yet.
We follow Esri's Electric Model.
If anyone can provide some suggested questions or trains of thought, I'd greatly appreciate it.
There has been an issue in the past with vendors saying their software is ELA compatible, but then that was not the case upon delivery.
