ADD GRUP is one of the recognized leaders in smart metering industry with more than 7 mln smart meters deployed in 30 countries over 5 continents. One of the keys to success is our ability to listen to our customers, hear their concerns, adhere to their demands and expectations and come up with ingenious solutions.
Being part of worldwide community in utility industry and taking part in numerous events of global and regional scale we have noticed that besides our target customers (electricity and water distribution companies) there appeared new customer group: hotels and rental property owners/administrators. Their major concern was overconsumption and utility waste.
We tried to identify, how this waste is being created and who is to blame? Hotel guests and tenants are the major factor for the misuse of water and electricity consuming twice as much as a usual resident does. ADD Grup started thinking over a new approach to tackle overconsumption of electricity and water. We considered different factors for this aspect: efficiency, demand and the lack of supply on the European market as well as regulations for energy efficiency in hotel industry.
All these factors together with our previous experience of creation of efficient solutions for management of electricity and water resources conceptualized into ADDERRA Prepaid Utility Services for Hotels and Rental Property, where high accuracy meters combined with e-commerce marketplace create a convenient platform for interaction between guests/tenants and owners of hotels and rental property leading to improved electricity and water efficiency.
ADDERRA was created with the purpose of helping owners of hotels and rented property to offer a pleasant vacation for the guests, enjoy the experience of using ADDERRA and last but not least to become nature-friendly. ADDERRA motivates sustainability, reasonable use of precious resources at the same time creating possibility for a fair pricing for rent/stay through elimination of fees for overestimated consumption.
