OMD® Product Accessories

Internet

OMDNet OMDNet (known to many as "NetVision") is an Internet-based product that allows your company to host dedicated web sites for your customers to provide seamless e-commerce transactions.

Customers receive a secure log-in and password that allow them to view data related to their account, to log service calls, to order products, and to enter meter reads. OMDNet is linked directly to your OMD® data, and displays the information and functionality you select for your customers. It also updates data on a real-time basis.

OMDNet is customizable. You control the features each customer sees, and you can easily modify the site's appearance.

OMDNet facilitates Direct Meter Read Interfaces  with various hardware and software platforms, connecting metered equipment in the field directly to your OMD Software. Kyocera Mita and OMD Corporation announced the industry’s first integrated, seamless meter read collection solution in 2002. Since then, FM Audit, Imaging Portals, Konica Minolta, Lanier, Muratec, MWAi, Okidata, Panasonic, PrintFleet, Print Tracker, Ricoh, Savin, and Sharp have introduced similar direct-interface products. Meter readings are automatically transmitted to OMD® using OMDNet as the collection point.

Automatic meter read collection allows you to automatically receive meter reads on a designated date each month with no manual intervention. This process is 100% accurate with no chance of transpositions, missing digits, or partial meters. When meter reads are collected and entered manually, the potential for error increases when equipment contains multiple meters; with automatic meter read collection, the process occurs flawlessly and on schedule. Automatic meter read collection eliminates time-consuming phone calls to customers, and improves invoice accuracy and cash flow.
