As the world becomes more industrialized, the amount of waste produced each year continues to increase. A recent World Bank Report predicts that by 2025, the world will produce over 6 Billion tons of waste every day. With this increase in waste comes an increase in the need for efficient waste management.
One way to increase the efficiency of waste management is to use waste management software, like WeighPay Waste Management Edition. This type of software can help waste facilities to track and manage their retail and commercial inbound loads, and streamline the operational processes that occur after the waste is received.
There are many different types of waste management software on the market today. Some of these software programs are designed for specific types of waste facilities, while others are more general. Regardless of the type of software you choose, there are a few key features that you should look for to ensure that it will help you cut costs and increase efficiency.
The software should be easy to use. If the software is difficult to use, it will likely slow down your operations and lead to higher costs. The software should also be accessible from any device, so that you can manage your waste facility from anywhere.
The reporting features of the software should be robust and tailored to meet the unique needs of the industry. The software should be able to generate detailed reports on your inbound loads, outgoing loads, and operational key performance metrics such as retail ticket processing time averages.
The software should be flexible enough to meet the changing needs of your waste facility. As your facility grows, the software should be able to scale with you.
In 2022, integrability is key. With so many different hardware and software solutions available, being able to integrate your systems together to share key data in real time offers Waste Management Facilities the opportunity to reduce their administrative burden and ensure accurate data entry. An example of this would be ensuring the solution offers robust integrations to your truck scale and weighbridge software.
Additionally, your Waste Management Software should be able to integrate with other software programs that you use, such as accounting or other ERP applications to minimize your team's effort in managing your finances and budget.
A good Waste Management Software should offer advanced analytics capabilities with the ability to analyse information across different departments and business units. This will allow you to make better decisions about your operations by giving you visibility into trends and patterns, as well as allowing waste management executives to get a 360 view of all sites and locations.
Another key feature to look for is process automation. Automating repetitive tasks can help to improve efficiency and reduce errors. Automation can also help you to keep track of compliance-related tasks work order completion checklists. By automating time consuming yet simple tasks, waste management facilities can achieve the same level of administrative control with fewer resources.
As mentioned before, the software should be accessible from any device. But in addition to this, the software should also offer full online and offline access. This means that you should be able to manage your facility using a mobile app on your smartphone or tablet, with or without internet connectivity.
