Rehrig Pacific has released the latest version of its Container Asset Recovery Tracking System (CARTS), asset tracking software for the waste and recycling industry.
The company, which supplies roll-out carts, recycle bins, commercial containers and software systems, offers CARTS 5.0 to customers as a software as a service (SaaS) model.
New features include an improved and more user-friendly interface, with quick search account manager tools and dashboard reporting features that capture a snapshot of customer data specific to all aspects of their business, Rehrig Pacific says. The new dashboards include a detailed overview of new container distributions, account database creation, container management and work orders, container inventory utilization and daily collection operations.
The overall functionality of CARTS 5.0 was created to improve container capital utilization, the company says. As the solid waste industry continues to grow, so does the number of container assets deployed to support this business. In the past, Rehrig Pacific says keeping up with the movement of these assets has been a challenge and customers have been experiencing significant container losses for years, which ultimately results in increased and unnecessary container capital expenditures along with the risk of servicing non-paying accounts for those container assets that are not recovered.
The CARTS 5.0 software creates a billing database and also has the capability of proactively tracking movement of containers within a specific service area. This type of functionality can minimize container capital loss and help prevent the risk of servicing non-paying accounts, the company says.
In addition, in the 5.0 version of CARTS, customers can take advantage of the new inventory utilization tools, which provide visibility of all container asset types and sizes in multiple locations as well as predict when inventory will be depleted and needs to be replenished.
