Rehrig Pacific Company Launches New Version of Asset Tracking Software for the Solid Waste and Recycling Industry, CARTS 5.0

Rehrig Pacific Company, a leading supplier of roll-out carts, recycle bins, commercial containers and software systems to the waste and recycling collection industry, today announced the release of its latest version of the proprietary Container Asset Recovery Tracking System (CARTS). Rehrig Pacific offers CARTS 5.0 to customers as a software as a service (SaaS) model. New features include an improved and more user friendly interface, with quick search account manager tools and dashboard reporting features that capture a snapshot of valuable customer data specific to all aspects of their business. The new dashboards include a detailed overview of new container distributions, account database creation, container management and work orders, container inventory utilization and daily collection operations.

“For over the last seven years, the CARTS software has been leading the efforts of providing an automated container asset management program for the solid waste and recycling industry,” said Dustin DePanfilis, Director of the Environmental Services Group. “Today, Rehrig has millions of containers under management with CARTS and we are excited to release its new features to our valued customers and the industry as a whole.”

“The intuitive design makes training staff easy and cost effective. Powerful reporting tools provide meaningful information to determine areas of our operation that may need attention and with live collection data feeds you are able to track production on the day of collection,” said Gene Ginn, Assistant Solid Waste Manager, City of Largo, Fla. “Container Inventories and repairs are easily trackable and insure quality customer service in a timely manner.”

The overall functionality of CARTS 5.0 was created to improve container capital utilization. As the solid waste industry continues to grow, so does the number of container assets deployed to support this business. In the past, keeping up with the movement of these assets has been a challenge and customers have been experiencing significant container losses for years, which ultimately results in increased and unnecessary container capital expenditures along with the risk of servicing non-paying accounts for those container assets that are not recovered.

The CARTS 5.0 software not only creates an extremely accurate billing database, but it also has the capability of proactively tracking movement of containers within a specific service area. This type of functionality can minimize container capital loss and help prevent the risk of servicing non-paying accounts. In addition, in the 5.0 version of CARTS, customers can take advantage of the new inventory utilization tools, which provide visibility of all container asset types and sizes in multiple locations as well as predict when inventory will be depleted and needs to be replenished.

Rehrig Pacific provides solutions that maximize the return on customers’ invested capital and improve operational efficiencies. To see a demonstration of CARTS 5.0 visit Rehrig Pacific at booth 3451, WasteExpo 2014, Georgia World Congress.
