Waste and Recycling challenges: Lack of trust in data

  Pritesh Pattni


Lack of trust in your waste management system is one of the issues faced by Waste and Recycling management. We explore how you can help solve the issues surrounding lack of trust in the data you store.

The problems
  • Do you have an instant and trustworthy view on the financial position of the business?
  • Do you have less than 100% trust in the accuracy of your data?
  • Can you report from business operations at any point, in real time and feel assured the report is accurate?
  • Are you sure there is no risk for fraud?
If you can’t trust your data, can you trust your decisions?


How integration can help you trust your data

You need a trusted partner who understands your business and can provide a fully integrated solution that works. Integration means a connected organisation, one in which data and process provide accuracy, control and automation of tasks. There is a seamless flow of information to effectively plan, execute and adapt.

Mobile, Web, Environmental Operations & Accounting Software Deployed in the Cloud

Using master data you can automate transactions from in-field to operations to accounts, speeding process, increasing accuracy and halving time spent on data administration.

How Master Data Controls Process

Master data objects are the fundamental items that control and govern all transactions in the business process. They need to be precise and nurtured for transactional data to be managed accurately throughout the enquiry to banking process. Master data includes a range of data objects in customer, supplier, orders, materials, pricing matrices, stocked and non-stocked items, assets, vehicles, account, project, cost centre and tax codes and posting distribution rules.

How Waste and Recycling One can help

ISB Global has developed integrated software platforms that suit the requirements of organisations operating in waste logistics and recycling materials sectors, worldwide, SAP, Waste & Recycling One.

Waste and Recycling One is a software solution for waste & recycling that standardises, integrates, simplifies, and automates all your waste and recycling processes, to create efficiencies throughout the business.

Master data control

Master data is a key part of the implementation to Waste and Recycling One, especially when migrating from multiple interfaced applications to our integrated software platform.

Order Control

The associated CRM, enquiry, draft and quote tasks compile and move the waste logistics order through the different stages of the enquiry to banking process. The relationship to transactional (and reference) data governs, controls and can semi or fully automate the process, according to configuration settings in SAP, Waste & Recycling One.

Automatically Generating Reports

Once the order is compiled and planned using master data components, it can be carried out according to the instructions guided by the master data. For example, the order type is scheduled to take place on customer request. Corresponding materials data in the order governs waste transfer reporting. Instructs an internal or subcontractor vehicle asset, and notification of a manifest or acceptance process, for quality analysis or laboratory sampling, in turn governing recycling or disposal route.

Controlling Bi-Modal Interaction

As a true Bi-Modal operation, SAP Waste & Recycling One data governs the scheduled order for logistics execution in SmartWorld, RoutiLogix, a flexible logistics, planning, scheduling and optimisation app.

The DriviLogix UX allows the vehicle teams to interact quickly with the integrated master (transaction and reference) data, capturing additional information against the planned order’s master data. In turn easily managing variance against planned weights and difference in costs, in real time against order, shift, route and sequence, automatically from onboard weighing equipment, if (IoT) connected.

Regulating Weight, Quality & Costs

The weights back from third party and subcontractor sites are uploaded to portal or directly, easily, automatically and matched against planned data. Reporting on any variance in costs, helping to manage accurate payments for associated disposal and recycling activities. The same process applies to scales and bridges at your own plants, confirming weights and outbound charges.

Price Master Data Command

Once the logistics order is confirmed and completed against planned master data and any variance managed. Master data also governs the sales order charging elements for the service provided (from customer pricing master data) and any payments due from third party haulage or recycling costs based on the materials and weights (from supplier pricing master data).

Automated Journal Posting

As these processes have been planned, executed and confirmed correct, they can be automated to create, raise and post journals to predefined general ledger account master data. Including cost, project, departmental and budgetary analysis. Ensuring integrated cost and profit data used in accounts is correct – it has been planned and if necessary, corrected in operations if deemed out of tolerance.

Master Data Integration vs. Interface

Studies and value engineering exercises on implementations conducted to date, show the use of master data to maintain and control transactions, have resulted in a significant increase in financial and operational business processes and benefits. Profitability, accuracy, speed and administration timing has an average uplift of >65% in comparison to separate software applications, interfaced and not integrated.

The benefit our solutions is getting all your data accurately installed and modelled from the beginning. This is the key to successful accurate, automated business processes. ISB Global continue to implement, configure and develop the business management software to deliver automated operations and profitable growth.
