Obviously, a crucial part of efficient waste management tracking for any successful solid or liquid waste operation is routing. But it’s amazing how many organizations still rely on outdated, manual, or even paper-based routing methods to manage what is likely the most critical aspect of day to day waste management solutions. If your team is still using paper maps, hand-written or manual route sheets or even software products that aren’t integrated, chances are you lack the ability to respond quickly to expected changes in the daily schedule.
Fortunately, there are waste management solutions that can integrate routing with real–time waste GPS tracking and dispatching software so that one tool can be used to manage it all. Imagine one software package that could bring together:
- Building and planning routes using Google mapping tools
- Dispatching assigned routes to smart devices in the field in real time
- Validating routes and service events in real-time to keep aware of discrepancies
- Viewing video clips generated from on-board cameras for events, as they occur (live or archived video)
- Analyzing daily performance of every routes through real-time dashboards and reporting
In the waste management world, even one “not out,” missed pickup or unexpectedly long (or heavy) collection can cause a ripple effect not just for that particular route, but others as well. Or, when team members have to deviate from their routes for emergency reasons, or heaven forbid an accident occurs, managers and supervisors have to be able to react immediately.
And a waste GPS solution that doesn’t track real-time route progress can sometimes leave operations in the lurch. If every pickup and stop is critical, then operators need waste management solutions that will automatically keep them in tune with every stop, change and event in the field – without having to ask for it.
