Scrap yard owners often have problems with their data. They might not be able to access it from all of the locations where they need to, or they may not even know how much data is available to them in the first place. The solution? A scrap software system that allows users access from anywhere on any device; this helps your company stay competitive in today's fast-paced market.
Manual processes for data collection can be slow and inefficient. The manual process of going through each ticket, weighing everything in it, recording the results on paper or spreadsheet requires time which could otherwise be used to generate more revenue by increasing volume throughput. This task also needs accuracy as well as consistency across all ticket types, which is hard to achieve with humans manually inputting values into different systems.
A scrap software system can automate the process of data collection and reporting by collecting all information from the scale house in real-time so that it's always up-to-date. This means that you'll have more time for other tasks while still being able to keep track of everything.
With a Scrap Software System, you'll never have to worry about keeping up with contracts again. You can create contract templates for each customer type so that there's no need to manually enter the same information over and over again. This will make it easier on everyone involved when dealing with different types of contracts so that they're always up-to-date and ready to go at a moment's notice. It also allows you to easily manage quotes for customers based on existing templates.
Another problem scrap yard owners face is that their data is often disconnected or disparate. This means that it's not available to all stakeholders, and it's usually locked onto an individual PC or laptop. Additionally, there is often a lack of access to real time access to data which makes it harder to make better and faster decisions.
Don't let your business be held back by outdated methods. Scrap scale software can help you move to a more efficient way of doing things. Most companies large and small still do their pricing and market indexing analysis in excel -but that's no longer necessary. With our scale software, you can easily get a live feed of commodity spot rate data into our system, giving you real time access to all the information you need.
Many scale solutions don't offer contract or quote management features, which can make it difficult to keep track of your expenses and profits. This can lead to missed opportunities and decreased efficiency overall. But with our advanced scrap software, you'll have everything you need right at your fingertips.
For logistics, many scrap yard owners use a white board for a dispatch solution or a stand alone software that doesn't talk to the scale. This can be problematic because it can be difficult to keep track of all the information and it can be difficult to ensure that everyone is using the same system. Additionally, it can be difficult to get real-time updates on what's going on. Thankfully, our scrap software offers advanced reporting features that can help you keep track of everything that's happening in your yard in real time.
Almost everyone uses excel to track inventory because tracking regrades in real time is difficult. The problem with this is that it can be challenging to get an accurate picture of what's going on in your yard and may not realize that you're losing money until it's too late. With our scrap software, you will have access to features that are specifically designed to solve the unique challenges of the scrap metal industry.
Most scrap yards still do their billing manually in a stand-alone financial application, like QuickBooks, Xero or MYOB which often results in a lot of data entry errors. Additionally, there is usually no integration between the financial application and the scale software, which makes it difficult to track transactions and keep track of your profits. With our scrap software, you'll have everything you need to make informed financial decisions and keep your business running smoothly.
