What to Look for in a Waste Management Solution

Waste management is a growing concern for businesses today, and not only because of the increasing pressure to comply with ever-changing legislation, but organisations are now more conscious of the impact their waste management has on the environment too.

Considering this, waste management companies have a real opportunity to secure more business from conscientious organisations. These waste management companies must be armed with the right tools for the job, so what should you be looking for when investing in waste management software?

Cloud-Based Access

When managing waste disposal, your team members will be dealing with many customers at once, across a whole range of locations. Therefore, it’s vital that you can access your files, schedules, and reports easily, from any device.

You'll also want to be safe in the knowledge that all your company’s and – more crucially – your customers' important data is backed up securely, in case anything goes wrong with your hardware or you're targeted by a cyber-attack.

Thankfully, a modern cloud-based waste management solution can deal with all these concerns while also providing the added benefit of being scalable, allowing its functions to grow alongside your business.

Smooth User Experience

The last thing your company wants is to squander valuable time and resources training your team to use complicated tools.

That’s not to suggest that your new waste management tool shouldn’t be feature-rich and comprehensive, but equally, it should be easy-to-use and intuitive.

Paperless Touch-points

Waste management is all too often a document-heavy business, but using paper is wasteful, bad for the environment, and not the most efficient way of doing things.

Thanks to the growing ubiquity of digital devices like mobile phones and tablets, the days of endless piles of paperwork can be put firmly behind us. Contemporary waste management solutions now offer users the ability to sign documentation with a swipe of their finger on a touchscreen, cutting down on the reams of paperwork and increasing efficiency across your operation

Needless to say, we recommend that your business avoids creating more waste by choosing a software solution that caters for paperless documentation.

Subscription-Based Licensing

In today’s fast-moving business world, your business needs to remain agile – you never know when plans will need to change.

Instead of pouring thousands of pounds into a one-time purchase, we advise investing in a flexible, subscription-based waste management solution. This will save you money in the short-term and give you peace of mind knowing that your software will always be up-to-date with the latest features (we’ve added 350+ software enhancements in the last 12 months alone!)

Intelligent Reporting Features

The smartest business decisions are data-driven.

You need to know your profit-per-job, profit per-day-per-vehicle, KPI performance, and much more – all via read-at-a-glance dashboards.

Your waste management solution should offer the capability of assessing this data in real-time, letting you make informed decisions and grow your business.

Comprehensive Support

Things go wrong from time to time – it’s an unfortunate fact of life.

That’s why you must ensure that whichever waste management solution you invest in is backed up by a team of specialists who are ready and waiting to help you, whenever you need them, 24/7.


The right waste management software can make your business more efficient, more effective, and more profitable.
