    MoDE - Monitoring of Distribution

    Enterprises Distribution utilities today face several challenges

    that of managing distribution losses, costs,

    customer expectations and

    changing legal, policy & regulatory frameworks Utility business processes are executed from geographically distant

    locations

    Processes are either fully/partly automated and sometimes even manual

    as a result it becomes a challenge for a utility to adopt proactive approach

    and to take quick and informed decisions which are essential for success
