Tired of Manual Reporting? There’s a Better Solution for Waste Brokers

Waste brokers are expected to provide more data and reports than ever before. From tonnage data to recycling percentages and spend metrics, clients want accurate and reliable information—and they want it as quickly as possible.

Fulfilling data requests from customers can be incredibly complex and time-consuming. Manually pulling together data from multiple systems, weight tickets, invoices, and spreadsheets can turn into a multi-day endeavor. And, that’s assuming you’re not waiting on data from waste vendors.

Relying on an unscalable reporting workflow makes it harder to grow your waste brokerage business. Thankfully, there’s a better way to meet your clients’ reporting needs while saving yourself a lot of time and frustration.

Let’s explore why a waste reporting tool, such as RecycleERP, might be the right fit for your business.

What is a Waste Reporting Tool?

At a basic level, a waste reporting tool is software that collects relevant data and formats it into a digestible manner for clients. Although capabilities vary from one system to the next, a waste reporting tool should at least provide visibility into basic waste metrics, such as:

  • Cost
  • Material
  • Treatment Method
  • Tonnage

A cloud-based waste reporting tool has numerous advantages compared to a system that is installed and maintained onsite. Updating and patching software, maintaining backups, and ensuring uptime are managed by the software vendor, which allows you to stay focused on running your waste brokerage business.

RecycleERP takes waste reporting to the next level by providing a branded self-service portal, which your customers can use to access data, reports, and dashboards that are relevant to their businesses. With a few clicks, clients can visualize trends and gain a more complete understanding of their environmental and sustainability goals.
