The NZR group consists of six business units. Some 180 employees cover the entire spectrum of energy metering. Founded in 1933, the family-run business has primarily two types of customer: Electronics wholesalers look to the market leader NZR for its extensive portfolio of metering technology like electricity meters, coin-operated meters and energy optimization systems. And several energy providers also rely on the company based in the German state of Lower Saxony for power, water, heating and gas meters, as well as repair, calibration, financing, logistics and installation services.
Energy efficiency is gaining in importance and NZR has developed smart energy management software to tap into this trend. The company noticed that customers do not like to concern themselves with the IT framework behind the technology. So NZR decided to look for a partner that would be able to make the application cloud-ready and also had the IT capacity to realize its operation.
Thanks to its scalability, the Open Telekom Cloud flexibly provides exactly the IT resources needed while offering comprehensive security features. Moreover, NZR can depend on individual support at all times.
NZR customers are convinced: Industrial companies are improving energy efficiency while energy utilities are benefiting from remote meter reading – and they are able to manage all of that without burdening their own IT departments. For NZR this means increased customer satisfaction, higher sales and new business opportunities.
