InSight Mobile Data, Air-Weigh to integrate refuse weight monitoring with vehicle location
Industry: Computer Software/Services
Combined solution allows waste operations to link precise refuse load weights to customer locations and make more informed business decisions
California, MD (PRUnderground) May 3rd, 2019
InSight Mobile Data announces an integration partnership with Air-Weigh on-board weighing solutions to combine refuse weight monitoring with accurate, real-time vehicle location and tracking. By tying accurate bin weights with real-time location and activity data, waste operations can identify profitable vs. non-profitable customers by weight hauled, determine whether they are charging accurate rates and pursue new business opportunities that require weight monitoring and measurement.
Both companies will be present at the upcoming Waste Expo conference (May 6-9, Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV) to talk about the partnership (InSight booth #4190, Air-Weigh booth #1328).
“We’re excited to be partnering with Air-Weigh to bring our combined solutions and strengths to the solid waste industry,” said Doug Hawley, Chief Operating Officer for InSight Mobile Data. “Waste companies all over the U.S. already depend on the StreetEagle software platform for accurate management of their vehicle activities, but the ability to link precise bin weights to specific locations, vehicles and times gives these operations a much clearer picture of how much they spend hauling waste for each customer. And, it sheds light on whether they are making the most efficient use of their time and resources on their daily refuse pickups.”
Air-Weigh, headquartered in Eugene, OR, has been providing trucking companies of all kinds with durable, reliable, and intuitive on-board weighing systems since 1987. Their BinMaxx On-Board Scale solution features weigh-in-motion sensors that are mounted on the lift arms of waste trucks. Proximity sensors establish a measurement window to dynamically weigh containers without driver interaction needed, and the accurate weight data is fed directly into StreetEagle Professional fleet management software to time- and location-stamp the pickup information.
“This project was born from the needs of a mutual customer and working with InSight during the discovery phase has been a pleasure.” said Jim Janke, Integration Specialist at Air-Weigh. “Our customer was already getting valuable weight data from our BinMaxx Front End Loader scale, now with integration with StreetEagle, that data is sent instantly to the back office, optimizing decision making.”
Chris Eller, Director of Product Development for InSight, zeroed in on the real-world benefits for this integration for solid waste organizations working in a very competitive marketplace: “Bin weight has a direct bearing on the bottom line for waste operations, and with this solution, managers and owners can gain insight into who their most and least profitable customers are.
“With the combined technologies of StreetEagle and Air-Weigh, users can create zones on our maps for their customers, and then they’ll know accurate bin weights, number of bins collected, service intervals, and the expected weight range per bin. They can measure whether each customer’s bin weights are light, expected or excessive, and that’s key intelligence that many of these operations do without right now. But with this solution, these companies can get a much more precise picture on what they’re spending per customer, and make smarter business decisions from there. We’re excited to provide waste operations with this level of insight.”
