Scrap and Metal Recycling
Reliable ERP software that scales
Managing a commercial recycling enterprise has become increasingly complex and competitive in the global economy. Multi-location commercial recyclers and brokers need reliable information in near real time to effectively manage their operations; and their commercial reporting must accurately mirror their financial statements.
Scrap purchase agreements and supporting transactions are fraught with pricing, notification, quality, settlement and payment exceptions. Accounting management systems do not seamlessly integrate with the variety of ERP, spreadsheet and legacy systems applications in an efficient and effective way. Supplier communications are sporadic and routine inquiries extremely time consuming for the procurement team. With contained raw materials costs representing the major component of finished goods, the potential cost-saving opportunities are significant.
Proactive C-level managers need margin analysis and a variety of other commercial, operational, logistics and financial tools on demand with the ability to drill down to specific suspect transactions. At the same time, financial auditability and controls need to back every transaction. AMCS's Commercial Recycling Enterprise Solution effectively addresses these challenges and more.
Users worldwide count on its browser-based reporting, touchscreen point-of-purchase, point-of-sale, production and tagging to streamline their operations. Back office transactions are fully integrated and exception alerts keep key managers abreast of potential critical business anomalies. Users meet today’s challenges with proven technologies from the industry software solutions leader.

Our Mobile solution has recycling specific features and allows the yard master to control the trucks in the yard and grade the material which is unloaded. The application runs on a touch screen device which is linked to the database by either Wi-Fi or GPRS. As soon as the scale master has registered the first weight in, the yard master can see the truck on his device. He can select the commodities using a tableau which can be easily be set up and maintained by the customer.
The yard master can split the load into multiple commodities by percentage and can also add deductions for the whole load or by commodity. As soon as he releases the truck through a touch on his device, the data is available at the scale. The scale master can see that the grading is done and takes the tare weight of the truck. The scale master does not have to enter any of this data. The risk of miscommunication is largely reduced.
The device is also capable of taking pictures and linking them directly to the commodities on the ticket.
