Grundon, the UK’s largest privately owned waste management company, is installing the PurGo software system at its largest depot in Colnbrook to enhance customer service and improve efficiency.
Developed specifically for waste operators, PurGo streamlines processes from sales through to operations, including admin, billing and reporting. It uses in-cab PDAs for scheduling, optimisation, routing, exception reporting, live vehicle location and activity reporting.
The software integrates with most bin weighing systems to enable operators to monitor exactly what they are collecting and from whom.
John Stephens, Grundon’s group logistics manager, said: “PurGo is enabling us to convert most of our operations to a paperless system as well as providing our customers with full monitoring and complete traceability.”
PurGo was created by VWS Software Solutions. Customers pay a monthly subscription to use the software, which includes a support service.
