Metcollect is the largest cable recycler in Northern Ireland who provide an innovative solution to the collection of scrap metals via various onsite containers. We have developed a full ERP solution for Metcollect including online customer bin management, customer iOS/Android Apps, Route Planning & Driver App along with finance integration and advanced reporting features.
Metcollect has managed sustained growth and as part of their growth plan they required an ERP solution that was as innovative as their business. The software needed to enabled clients to manage their bins (new bins, empty bins and remove bins) 24 hours a day whilst also providing full depot management (asset management, route planning and more), head office functions (finance integration, reporting and depot over-site) and being able to scale with the company. The solution was required to be secure, easy to use and cost effective.
Our solution was to create a bespoke website and software as a service offering which allowed different users to access varying features. We developed a data model which would support the business now and in the future. We integrated to the existing finance solution for data transfer and created a bespoke solution to plan optimised routes taking into account the complexities of vehicle capacity/weight, traffic conditions and legal working requirements for drivers.
We complemented the solution with a client Android and iOS app to allow them to easily order, request a collection or return of a bin on their mobile device. Of course a route planning solution wouldn’t be fully realised without a driver app which allows the driver to perform pre-departure checks, manage their route (check in to locations, manage the bin emptying process etc) and handle ad-hoc messaging.
