Nottingham City Council invests in new AMCS software and mobile technology solution

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

Nottingham City Council is to improve the productivity and efficiency of its trade waste and recycling operation with a new software and mobile technology system from AMCS, supplier of software and vehicle technology for the waste and recycling industry

The new solution, worth an estimated £65,000, will replace a number of more manual and legacy applications. This is expected to enable Nottingham City Council to consolidate to a single system running across the entire operation including vehicles, weighbridge and back-office.

Implementation of the ERP software, AMCS 7, is anticipated to result in a single operation and invoicing system, improving both efficiency and accuracy. According to AMCS, its Fleet Planner combined with mobile technology across the fleet will optimise routing, increase productivity and realising a significant cost savings.

Daniel Ayrton, business development manager for Nottingham City Council said: “As our trade waste and recycling service continues to grow we are always looking for ways to improve operational efficiency and the service we deliver to our customers. Implementation of a single system running across our operation will enable us to optimise our logistics and streamline our administration. It will also provide real time data allowing us to quickly and proactively react to our customers’ needs. In addition, when consolidated and analysed, this data will play an important role in enabling us plan for future growth.”

Pat Murray, key account manager, AMCS added: “Local authorities play an importantly role in the delivery of commercial waste and recycling services and this is a market in which we expect to see considerable future growth.”

Implementation of the new system is said to be currently underway with the roll-out expected to be complete by the end of the year. In addition to the new software and mobile system AMCS also provides on-board vehicle weighing technology to Nottingham City Council through two UK partners.
