Ztech Instruments was established in the year 2006. Ztech manufactures reliable assortment of Process Indicator, Digital Gauge, Digital Scanner, Flow Meters, Level Switch And Transmitter, Pressure Transmitter, etc.
The Challenge

Ztech supplies turbine flow meters to one of the largest water utilities in Gujarat, there utility customer wanted them to provide real-time connectivity between their software and the water meter. They were also getting enquiry for a smart water meter from a lot of their existing customers too. One of their competitors had already launched its smart meter solution. They were short on time to launch such a water meter. Ztech wanted results in few weeks instead of months. They already had an water metering application but that was only designed for manual entries or hand held equipments.

The Solution

Ztech called up SenseGrow and they immediately set up a call with one of their hardware vendors and Ztech were able to kickstart the project within 24 hours of calling them. They along with their device partner were able to provide us a prototype within 2 weeks. Ztech had a working model in the third week of calling them. It took them a week more to finalize the hardware form factor and how to integrate InstaMsg into our billing application. Within 5 weeks Ztech were doing a pilot with one of our customer.
