View from the top of Europe
Stefan, what is the most important milestone that Landis+Gyr reached in 2007?
Stefan Weber: If I had to select one, it would be the success that the combined forces of Landis+Gyr, meter2cash and Enermet have achieved in the AMM market. We have won over 50 percent of all commercial AMM projects in Europe, including some very high profile ones including E.ON in Sweden and Trefor in Denmark. Our success in this segment has been amazing. Obviously, there are many other important milestones as well.
How has the merger with Enermet gone?
SW: Overall, we have made a lot of progress. The market and our staff are convinced this is a good thing and some positive results have already been achieved. Together, we are closer to the customer with local resources, we can offer a broader product and service portfolio and our breadth and depth of expertise is unique within our industry. On the other hand, we also need to recognise that we still have some work to do.
Finally, what key benefits are we aiming to bring our customers in 2008?
SW: First and foremost is for us to consistently be the high quality, reliable partner or supplier our customers expect. In addition, we will continue to enhance our offering in order to provide additional functionality and support to help our customers in their activities to serve their customers, and to ultimately "manage energy better".
