      Major energy retailers throughout New Zealand rely on Delta Utility Services to read meters and provide maintenance services; in turn, Delta relies on small contracting companies to perform the work. In this geographically dispersed, mostly rural country, the manual methods of collecting and reporting meter readings and dispatching work requests were burdensome and expensive.

      Delta turned to mobility expert Kognition to develop a solution for Microsoft Windows MobileTM–based Pocket PCs. Relying on Windows Mobile software and the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework, Kognition developed two applications in only 30 days—meeting Delta's tight deadline with a very small development team.

      Delta has been able to reduce service response time by approximately 20 percent. Significant improvements in efficiency, productivity, and accuracy lower Delta's cost of doing business and improve the bottom line.
