In today’s context, energy conservation has become a large contributor to a healthy bottom line. Therefore, the ability to measure and monitor energy and fuel consumption – especially in the current situation where these resources aren’t always readily available – is vital.

Dialog Enterprise, the corporate ICT solutions arm of Dialog Axiata, recently unveiled a timely technological solution for monitoring and measuring fuel and energy consumption with precision.

Developed in partnership with the University of Moratuwa Research Laboratory and rigorously tested on Dialog’s own base stations, the solution was released ahead of schedule to help organisations efficiently manage their fuel consumption.

Based on IoT technology, this solution uses multiple sensors to record and showcase information in systems in real time 24/7, and alerts users via SMS, email or the internet when critical thresholds are reached. The solution also offers users a wide range of options to trigger alerts based on their security clearance and allows them to view the status of their operational vehicles on one dashboard.

Dialog has successfully used the Internet of Things (IoT) solution at locations where its towers are placed, which brought about several benefits including reductions in maintenance and manpower costs, the elimination of fuel fraud, better visibility of energy consumed, improved overall efficiency and a reduction in waste. The data gathered from this solution has also proved beneficial for future planning.

This futuristic fuel and energy consumption monitoring solution has been developed in compliance with the environmental, social and governance (ESG) framework. This has greatly helped Dialog engineers overcome their day-to-day struggles in maintaining uninterrupted power and connectivity during times of fuel shortage.

It can be quickly and easily adapted to meet specific needs especially in terms of monitoring, and managing large capacity generators and fuel depots. Its immediate deployment at fuel stations, factories, hotels and relevant industries around the country is expected to contribute substantial savings while acting as an anti-pilfering tool as well.

“We are confident that using an infinitely scalable solution such as this will bring about greater cost savings and reduce unnecessary wastage, while showcasing trends and providing valuable data to help make informed decisions in future business planning,” says Group Chief Technology Officer, Dialog Axiata, Pradeep De Almeida.

“This fully automated solution will lead to fewer breakdowns, significantly reduce staff and manpower costs, and lessen downtime. It will also contribute positively to profit margins. At Dialog Enterprise, we are committed to technological advancements that are customised for our local market and this solution is only one of several in the development pipeline that corporates can expect,” adds Group Chief Officer at Dialog Enterprise, Dialog Axiata Navin Pieris.

Director of Dialog – University of Moratuwa Mobile Communications Research Laboratory Prof. Dileeka Dias notes: “With many years of experience in remote monitoring systems development at the Dialog – University of Moratuwa Mobile Communications Research Laboratory, I am happy that our technology has proved useful during a critical time. Dialog Enterprise will take Sri Lankan enterprises to the forefront, and ensure that Sri Lanka’s place is a significant one in the challenging and evolving world of mobile technology.”

This solution can be obtained at a starting price of Rs. 75,000. To find out more or to sign up for this solution, contact a Dialog Tech Expert on 0777 338878.
