VICTORIA, BC, March 21, 2002 — Power Measurement, a provider of enterprise energy management systems, announced that Blakely & Associates of Missouri has joined its ION Solution Provider program.
ION solution providers integrate the company’s ION® software and intelligent metering and control devices with other complementary products and services. Blakely & Associates specializes in power utility consulting, offering expertise in monitoring, generation and distribution.
According to Ray Blakely, owner of Blakely & Associates, the quality of Power Measurement products and services is the reason they joined the program. “ION solutions offer our customers the monitoring and communications functions they need at a reasonable price,” said Blakely, “and the excellent customer support from Power Measurement means we can recommend ION products without reservation.”
The association between the two companies began two years ago when a Blakely customer requested an ION product demo.
