Take a look at our upcoming development work! Browse below to take a look at what we're doing to enhance Mabdeck, improve functionality and give you an ever increasing number of features for easy metering and billing.
We do our best to stick to the periods below for releasing our developments, but we're perfectionists at heart. We'd rather something take a little longer and get to you in the best possible condition. If you're interested in one of our specific features, let us know and we'll keep you up to date as best we can for anticipated release dates. If not, we'll let you know in our regular release notes.
If you've got any questions on any upcoming features, existing features, or suggestions for ways we can make Mabdeck even better, please let us know!
We've been working on some exciting developments over summer.... and they're now in the final stages of our rigorous testing processes.
- Improved meter data import
Rebuilt reading processing functionality to increase performance and useful system outputs of the reading importation and validation process.
Faster processing and validation of meter readings
- More useful validation outputs, including meter diagnostic suggestions
- Automatic handling of validation changes
- Temperature & humidity sensor input
- Readings API
An open API for accessing readings held in Mabdeck, for connection to external billing systems, energy analytics systems or external reporting tools. If you would like more information on the API, please Submit a Request or speak to your Account Manager.
Keep your eyes out for updates on our early 2021 activity. We're just adding some polish to these to get them ready for testing and release.
- PAYG Cloud
Virtual hubs for managing PAYG accounts without the hardware hub. Including full managed service or self management through Mabdeck. Requires specific onsite metering, valve and data collection equipment.
You can speak to your Account Manager about how you can be PAYG Cloud ready on your developments.
- New billing modules
Additional billing modules for block tariff billing and temperature linked tariff billing:
Block Tariffs - Build up energy consumption blocks that have individual associated tariffs i.e. £0.01 per kWh up to 10 kWh, then £0.05 per kWh above that.
- Improved reporting
Improved efficiency of system reports and increased range and flexibility of report generation. We're looking to completely overhaul how reporting is used and how it works to make data availability throughout the platform more helpful. As well as making it more efficient and more accessible, we'll be increasing the number of standard reports available within the system.
If you want to know what we have in mind, or have some thoughts you want us to consider... feel free to reach out!
- PAYG upgrades
We'll be implementing deeper integration with the PAYG hubs we work with and increased consumer flexibility and experience around PAYG use. This will include easier payments, self control of supply and much more!
To complement the vulnerable customer flags on accounts, we'll be adding more functionality to build up a full Priority Services Register.
- Network Profiles
New user interface for network management, including updated network level billing and reading analytics, improved supplies and devices management, and easy linking to billing profiles.
- Consumer budgeting tools
Integrated tools for consumer budget management on utility accounts. Simple set up, easy notification tools.

Automated post fulfillment through Mabdeck for all correspondence to offer a complete generation through to door step service.
- Smart credit control
Credit control that adapts to user behaviour. Softer reminders and offers of support for the account with an out of character missed payment, or adapted credit control flows for regular non-payers.
- Thermal Integration HIU integration
Direct integration with Thermal Integration HIU's for read collection and service alarms. Including compatibility with PAYG Cloud.
- IoT billing applications & management
Improved and expanded IoT device handling, additional billing applications for car charge points and automated billing file generation from read reports.
- Consumer campaigns
Consumer campaign management through Mabdeck, for informing customers of network or client wide information, such as network maintenance, resident engagement or surveys or tariff changes. Configurable for all communication methods available, from notes on statements and custom generated letters, to banners on the consumer dashboard and email or text notifications.
- Active directory integration
Integration with Microsoft Active Directory, to streamline account security and offer single sign-on functionality for users of other Microsoft services.
We're exploring enhancing Mabdeck with machine learning and IFTTT functionality, utilising blended IoT approaches like Edge IoT and home assistants, and using utility data to enhance care for vulnerable consumers with degenerative conditions.
But more than anything, we want Mabdeck to work the best that it can for you and your consumers. So if you've got any great suggestions for improvements, ideas for brand new features or suggestions for collaboration, just Submit a Request.
