How To Grow Your Business with a Roll-Off Dumpster Tracking Software

Roll-off dumpsters represent a significant capital investment for any waste company. Successfully tracking these assets and focusing on the highest possible turnover can make or break the small to mid-sized waste hauler.

Before reaching out to us, we found that a significant percentage of our dumpster company customers relied on paper and pencil to track their roll-off dumpsters, drivers and customers.

After polling our customers, we found that the major pain points for most of the companies in this industry are:

  • Poor inventory management – due to constantly looking for their bins or dumpsters. 
  • Lack of control and visibility over their roll-off dumpsters and assets.
  • Insufficient record keeping – as they rely on paper and outdated practices.
  • Relatively low churn on services – due to current tracking methods. 
  • Profitability is not at its full potential – Low productivity due to the reasons stated above.
 
How to Overcome these Pain Points

Companies in the waste industry have unique needs when it comes to inventory management, pickup scheduling, route planning, and more. 

For this reason, Wireless Links easy-to-use cloud based software combined with our RFID and advanced GPS telematics devices delivers a powerful solution to haulers looking for a competitive edge. Deploying our solution will significantly improve your bottom line and will provide you with the control you are lacking on any size application of roll-off dumpsters and bins.
