- Waynesboro PA-based ScrapRight Software has released a cloud-based scrap and recycling app for scrap yards and recycling centers to handle ticketing, obtain government compliance documentation, and perform reporting tasks.
- Touted as inexpensive and easy to install, iSrapRight is compatible with Windows and Apple computers, iPads, and some tablets. Features include the ability to generate driver’s license signatures as well as images of the seller and materials, and receipts can be printed to Bluetooth-enabled printers, with synced tickets that are stored securely.
- There are options adaptable to certain situations, such as an iPad app to work offline in the absence of an Internet connection, and the option to shift to discounted LAN-based software for users who need inventory management, FIFO (first-in first-out) costing and shipping.
We live in a tech-based society, where more and more mobile technology is transforming operations in waste and recycling, providing convenient options for scheduling, billing, and other tasks.
While many apps and technological advances have been beneficial for the consumer — such as trash day scheduling apps like Rollout! Houston — this industry-focused app is specifically for the professional. On its website ScrapRight states, "Through years of careful planning, detailed design, and coordinated development, we are proud to offer this beautifully simple game-changer to the scrap and recycling industry."
Other technology companies, like Enevo and Compology, are working with the waste industry to make fleet management and measuring bin volumes easier and more efficient.
