GE Capital Launches Automated Meter Reading for Office Imaging Dealers

September 15, 2014

New integration with e-automate® and OMD® systems means more efficient meter processing

MOBERLY, MO, SEPT. 15, 2014 --- GE Capital's Office Imaging (OI) business announced today that it will provide OI dealers who use the e-automate® or OMD® systems with the ability to automatically submit customers' meter readings and receive customer payment information with no manual intervention. The goal of the integration is to help OI dealers save time and money.

Both e-automate and OMD are automated business management software systems designed for the OI industry. They are developed by Digital Gateway and OMD Corporation, both part of the ECi Software Solutions family of companies.

"As a result of this integration, we hope to enable faster payment recognition for dealers," said Glen Clark, vice president and general manager of GE Capital's OI business. "This new process enables dealers to post cash payments received from GE Capital directly to their operating systems and eliminates most of the current steps needed to process meter files."

GE Capital is a leading provider of innovative financing solutions, including leases and loans, to the manufacturers, dealers and end-users of OI products. With a dedicated team of meter and print management service experts, GE Capital has been billing, collecting and disbursing service revenue for over 20 years. Last year, the company billed for more than 1.6 million meters.

"We applaud GE Capital for enabling dealers to access emerging technologies," said Laryssa Alexander, president of ECi Software Solutions' Office Equipment Division. "Our goal is to make processes more efficient and seamless, which means we're helping dealers and their customers too."

Today's news exemplifies GE Capital's continued interest in using technology to drive cost efficiencies and top-line growth for dealers. Its customizable financing solutions and full-service support help dealers and their customers take advantage of new business opportunities and think beyond the copier. Its offerings include digital tools such as the Leasingsource mobile credit application and Dealer Analytics reporting tools.
