AMCS, a technology provider for the waste, recycling and resource management industry with U.S. offices in Boston, is offering its AMCS Platform Summer Release, which showcases the latest solutions for Smart Collection, Smart Recycling and Smart Engagement. The company debuted its AMCS Platform Summer Release at WasteExpo in Las Vegas, which was June 28-30.
According to a news release from AMCS, the highlight of the AMCS Platform release is its embedded Transport Management System (TMS) and the launch of a new data-rich Telematics Service for waste haulers.
“We are proud to be the first company in the waste and recycling market to offer an industry-specific Transport Management System embedded in the AMCS Platform, which eliminates the need for interfacing siloed applications,” says Elaine Treacy, global product director at AMCS. “We are solving one of the biggest challenges that companies in the industry face by offering a smarter platform where CRM, billing, scale and materials management work seamlessly in real-time to leverage the full potential of smart waste collection processes.”
The new AMCS Telematics service is designed to capture rich tracking and telematics data like driver behavior, engine performance and fuel usage. It also provides the route details to provide planners with full visibility via an intuitive, data-rich dashboard.
The company says the Transport Management System is designed to automate all aspects of transport. This includes resource and roster management, planning, execution, live monitoring, route optimization and analytics. The process is enhanced by a modern browser-based user experience, designed to boost planning productivity through ease of use and automation of frequent planning tasks. The process removes the need for complex integrations between different systems and vendors.
Other key highlights of the Summer Release include:
- a “Request to Pay” feature to support simple and quick card and ACH payments;
- a web-based service, available on multiple devices, to manage all yard activities from grading, loading, stock checks and barcode scanning;
- an added intuitive shopping cart experience, leveraging geo-targeted advertising to support efficient order-to-cash model on the customer portal; and
- a new price hierarchy and pricing basis so that operators can compete with flexible, differentiated services.
