Following the implementation of Review of Gas Metering Arrangements (RGMA), new flows & processes were introduced to allow Suppliers to communicate with different agents within a deregulated Meter Asset Manager (MAM) market. This requires MAMs to provide RGMA specific flows to benefit from the new contract opportunities.

Within the market, all Suppliers implemented RGMA compliant solutions in order to deal with National Grid GT and National Grid regulated MAM. For deregulated MAMs however, communication back to the Supplier can be either on a bi-lateral flow arrangement basis or by RGMA defined flows. B-Smart RGMA MAM solution fully supports both arrangements for Meter Asset Managers.

B-Smart RGMA MAM is a modern, low risk and cost-effective solution, principally for the provision of a RGMA compliant meter asset management system, yet continues to allow for the production of bi-lateral flows where required. B-Smart flow routing and market messaging capabilities provide significant added value to start up operations.

The B-Smart configuration of applications is a proven, industry robust solution in terms of best practice, processes and flows, performance, scalability and operational fit.
