The company behind the Skipscanner Uber-style waste industry app has been bought by AMCS Group.
AMCS said its acquisition of Senddr would help waste companies to build “stronger relationships” through social media and internet-connected devices. Both firms are based in Ireland.
Senddr, which specialises in secure online financial transactions, was founded in 2012.
In March last year, Senddr directors Morgan and Malcom Lynch launched Skipscanner, which was described as the UK’s first online skip hire service.
AMCS chief executive Jimmy Martin said: “The waste and recycling industry is facing a major challenge to digitise their businesses, sell services online and interact with customers and subcontractors in the digital world.
“Senddr’s offering includes an extensible Cloud Suite that we will incorporate in the AMCS platform. This will enable waste operators to rapidly deploy online services, offer a secure automated payment channel and provide a workspace to interact with subcontractors online.”
Morgan Lynch said: “With this natural synergy we are ideally placed to drive process efficiencies in the waste and recycling industry.”
Earlier this year AMCS reported a 43% growth in revenue.
In December last year, Nottingham City Council invested in AMCS software and mobile technology to integrate the authority’s waste services, including vehicles, weighbridge and back-office.
