Waste companies are responsible for managing the collection and disposal of waste from homes, businesses, and other public spaces. To be effective, they need to keep track of hundreds or thousands of waste bins, which can be a complex and time-consuming process. This is where Bluetooth tags come in -- they offer an efficient and cost-effective solution for tracking bins, improving the waste management process in several ways.
Provide Accurate Location Bluetooth tags can provide the location data of where each bin was dropped off to enable waste companies to monitor bin locations better. Using Bluetooth tags instead of current manual processes, waste companies can effectively address the logistical challenges of managing bins throughout the waste company’s territory.
Prevent Service and Billing Issues Trucks equipped with a telematics device or a tablet that supports Bluetooth will not only automatically record the location of where the bin was dropped but also record the date and time to provide an accurate record of when a service was provided. This empowers waste companies in cases where there are disputes over when a service was performed or when a customer disputes a bill. In addition, if the date and time stamp are linked to a billing system, this data can be used to automate billing processes, reducing the time and effort required to generate invoices.
Cost-effective One of the biggest advantages of Bluetooth tags compared to other tracking technologies, such as GPS, is that they are very cost-effective. Not only are they relatively inexpensive to install and maintain, tags require little in the way of additional equipment or infrastructure. Typically, you will find Bluetooth tags priced at about a third of the price of GPS tracking solutions.
Small, Easy to Install Devices Finally, Bluetooth tags require less power and use smaller batteries as compared to GPS trackers, making them much smaller. You can now find Bluetooth tags as small as the diameter of a quarter with the ability to last five years! Because they are so small, tags are easier to attach, are more discreet, and won’t protrude beyond bin framing.
Bluetooth tags are a valuable tool for waste management companies, allowing them to improve operations, increase efficiency, and reduce costs. By using Bluetooth tags, waste management companies can ensure that their operations are running smoothly and meeting the needs of their customers while improving their operational efficiency.
