Gain visibility and control on the key metrics that drive the profitability of your routes

The ability to adapt to new situations requires agility and access to insight on key margin drivers.  While this has always been the case, situations are constantly being reassessed. Adapting must happen faster, and more frequently. C&I waste companies need agility to respond to ever-changing conditions. Becoming agile means embracing a digital transformation, not partially, but all the way. This includes behaviour as well, not just technologies.

The very real danger of clinging to manual processes – the eventual reality – is that those companies will no longer be able to compete. Call it the C&I waste industry’s version of Darwinism.

Maximising profitability, customer by customer

By digitising your entire operations, you get complete visibility on the key metrics so you know your costs to serve on your routes and for each customer so you can maximise your margins.  That's how you become agile. You will  significantly increase your efficiencies and control your costs, which will improve profitability for each customer.

AMCS Platform, an end-to-end enterprise-grade software ERP, is built for every aspect of your operations, no matter what your size of your business is. Designed specifically for the C&I and C&D waste industries, AMCS Platform supports everyday collections and ad hoc services.

For instance, rather than put additional trucks on the road during periods of high demand, you can plan your fleets more efficiently. In fact, you can reduce mileage, driving time, and CO2 emissions by up to 25%. You can also reduce planning time by up to 75%.

That’s because the platform and the modules it supports do all the work for you. It covers every aspect of your business, from business intelligence, contract management, route optimisation and complex pricing to integration with onboard weighing systems and weighbridges. Dealing with weighbridges, for example, is an area notorious for inefficiencies. AMCS Platform-supported vehicle technologies process your transactions so that your truck is in and out, with no manual processes to slow down drivers.

A new mindset, fantastic ROI

Technology is useless without the desire to harness its power. Your team must embrace the wonderful possibilities if your investment is to pay off. At AMCS, we can help you determine how to best make that happen. And when it does happen, you’re looking at a return on investment within 6 to 12 months.

AMCS Platform is for all sizes of businesses ranging from Enterprise to SMB companies. It’s software as a service (SaaS), so for companies still using on-premise software, this is a major leap forward. No server hardware or additional IT is needed on your part. It’s there, waiting for you on the cloud. We maintain and update it, scaling it with your needs. Security is tighter because we manage that too.

How long does it take to implement? That depends on your current set up, but it takes weeks, not months, so you can start reaping the benefits sooner than you thought possible. Settings are pre-configured to make onboarding fast and easy. This is an off-the-shelf solution built with connectivity in mind. AMCS Connectivity offers businesses a secure and reliable range of integration services. This includes APIs and Connectors to process data between AMCS Platform and third-party applications, enabling you to easily integrate with third-party solutions, if that’s what you prefer. We make the whole process easy for you. The question is, are you ready?

AMCS Platform is designed to help you stop leaking revenue and control costs. It automates the weighing and identification of containers during collection. You’ll get the correct weight for each container lifted, which you can then use to determine the price charged, while measuring the margin per customer.

Mobile Workforce, the revolutionary on board computer and in cab tablet solution, reduces manual data input while enabling digital schedule updates, real-time addition of ad hoc orders, and access to customer information. Analytics, another part of the AMCS suite, takes the data collected from AMCS solutions and gives you back business intelligence that measures customer profitability. You can make informed decisions that maximise financial return and customer satisfaction. 

Our pricing engine enables you to maximise your revenue and margin with multiple options, such as weigh allowances and site visit charges. And then there’s the Customer Portal, which enables customers to manage their accounts 24/7. You can improve cash flow by allowing customers to pay faster while reducing calls by up to 30%. This is how you improve customer satisfaction by up to 33%.

How to reduce operating costs

With COVID-19 having disrupted supply chains, the construction industry needs reliability from building materials firms. Building materials is an industry that has always operated on tight margins.

This is about improving customer service levels, while spending less.
