Savings With Trash Compactor Monitoring
In today’s high-tech world, real time data is everywhere. Analytics are generated for website traffic, sales leads, customer satisfaction, production, inventory, and more. IoT solutions make it possible for companies to collect valuable data on virtually every aspect of their operations.
If your company hasn’t harnessed the power of cloud-based technology in your waste handling and recycling solutions, you are missing out on significant savings of both time and money. There are proven metrics to show that businesses can achieve significant savings with trash compactor monitoring.
Using waste handling and recycling equipment like Harmony balers and compactors yields a proven savings of up to 70% in trash related expenses. Adding wireless monitoring to those same assets has an immediate ROI with additional savings of staff FTE’s, hauling expenses, and accessories.
Businesses around the world trust Harmony Enterprises’ Insite Wireless Monitoring service to provide them with alert notifications and displays of their balers and compactors when they are partially full, full, have main doors open, containers not present, low oil levels, defective sensors, poor cell signal strength, or no power. All of these status alerts allow your staff to empty the waste or service the equipment on a “just in time” basis.
Our affordable Insite solution is invisible to the end user and can be installed on any make and model of waste and recycling equipment. It also is the perfect way to plan for preventive maintenance programs, as it keeps records on the total run hours and compaction cycles of the equipment. The entire Insite system is completely configurable to each business owner’s needs, allowing them to sort columns, create reports, and customize their alerts to the specifications of their individual business model.
What about the Insite data?
Harmony’s trained professionals can help you use the data gained from Insite to create efficient scheduling of employees and hauling, preventive maintenance requests, and service. An example of this happened this month in which an airport compactor went offline for just part of a day. In calling the customer to alert them of this issue, it was discovered that a service call was needed to repair the compactor itself. Rather than the customer waiting to find a solution to this problem, Harmony’s Insite professionals proactively diagnosed the problem and created a service ticket to rectify the issue the same week.
Where can you use Insite to help your business?
Here are three examples of where you should use Insite to help you realize savings with trash compactor monitoring:
- Indoor compactors – Products like our SmartPack Automatic Compactor or our 450SS Stainless Steel Indoor Compactor are ideal for medical facilities, airports, shopping malls, restaurants, and cafeterias. With Insite, janitorial employees can spend time on other important tasks and empty these receptacles only when needed. Business owners can customize the fullness level at which alerts are sent, maximizing the use of the waste bags, while minimizing the disruption to the customer experience.
- Outdoor Compactors – Larger compactors like our C300, VC10 Vertical Outdoor Compactor, or self-contained compactors can all be equipped with Insite service. This provides you with alerts of when the compactor is almost full and needs to be emptied. Not only do you maximize the space in your compactor container, you save on hauling costs, while reducing the overall emission of carbon due to frequent, unnecessary hauling.
- Balers – Commodities like cardboard, aluminum, textiles, plastic, and non-ferrous metal have a resale value with recyclers. Businesses need to get the most out of every bale that is produced, within the safety guidelines and operational specifications of the equipment manufacturer. By installing Insite on vertical balers, the additional benefit of bale weight data gives your business the reassurance it needs.
