ECODEAL is a company that operates in the environment area, namely in waste management, contaminated soil treatment and management of environmental liabilities.
Recently, ECODEAL started to use an interface between its weighbridge (weighing in both directions entry and exit) and Sage X3. With this mechanism, it is possible to register the entry and exit weight of the vehicles as well as the reading of the respective license plates. This automated data recording enables to optimize and reduce the average time of “Entry and Exit” of vehicles.

“With the development and implementation of this process, it was possible to reduce the entry and exit times of vehicles at the facilities, as well as minimize human errors resulting from the manual registration of plates related to the transport of hazardous waste. This topic is of particular importance in the context of waste management, since the license plate is one of the data that we validate in the e-GAR (Electronic Waste Monitoring Guide) upon arrival at our facilities. Equally important was the integration of data with the weighbridge, in order to allow the acquisition of weights automatically referenced to the identified license plate number. This solution allowed us to increase the reliability in the collection of data associated with transport and in the acquisition of weights that are used in our commercial transactions. With this automation, we were able to free up the installation’s entry and exit control operators for tasks with greater added value. The implementation process was fast and, in about 2 weeks, we managed to stabilize it.“

At this stage, there are still ongoing developments, which aim to optimize the entry and exit of waste by reading the e-GAR document (Electronic Waste Monitoring Guide). In a very close future, it will be possible to automate the association of waste with all those involved in the process (Producer, Transporter and Waste Management Operator), as well as increase the reliability and control of the data collected.

“We rely on F5IT and all its experience to support us in the development of solutions that allow us to continue to optimize processes and place us at ever higher levels of automation. We walk together in the dematerialization, personalization and continuous improvement of the organization.”
