Glass recycler URM (UK) has reported an improvement in business performance following the implementation of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.
PurGo ERP software from VWS Software Solutions has been designed for waste management and recycling operators and processing facilities, to streamline processes, and standardise procedures, monitoring and reporting.
URM has introduced PurGo into the business in stages, beginning with transport and logistics. Drivers now use PDAs to log on, do vehicle checks and send data back from weighbridges, as well as record weight and location data.
The production module is being phased in and involves the complex integration of four glass processing sites, and will allow the control and measurement of material flow from feedstock through sorting equipment to end products and waste.
