Why It's Important
To realize maximum value from any line sensing investment, the system must be well managed. This requires knowledgeable technical resources and time.
In cases where a utility’s technical resources are limited, line sensing workload can be handled by our professional services experts, allowing the utility to focus internal resources on strategic items and core competencies.
How It Works
Sentient Energy’s Professional Services are offered in three tiers so utilities can match their objectives, technical expertise, and budgets with an optimal level of service.
Tier 1 addresses management of Ample software. Tier 2 adds sensor fleet management, and Tier 3 provides insights to fully optimize the line sensor deployments with analysis and insights.
Professional Service Tiers
Built upon the base maintenance and support that comes with every line sensor and Ample deployment, each successive tier offers more comprehensive support and services.
