Waste management and recycling companies provide a valuable service to homes and businesses. Operators in this competitive sector must be able to make the most of thin profit margins without compromising their ability to deliver on their promises and keep customers satisfied.

Business Mapping software is an increasingly critical tool for recyclers and related businesses. MapBusinessOnline makes it easy for waste management businesses to plot addresses on a map. This in turn provides the perspective you need to make smarter decisions and keep overhead expenses to a minimum. Here’s how.

Customer Mapping for Waste Management Companies

For recycling and waste management companies, fuel and fleet maintenance costs represent two of the most significant overhead expenses. Any improvements you can make in these areas contribute to a more stable and profitable business.

MapBusinessOnline can be used to visualize your coverage areas and create more efficient routes for your trucks. The ability to plot addresses on a map lets you see where your customers are and what they need on a week-by-week basis. With business mapping, you can optimize delivery routes and make changes on-the-fly that reduce operational inefficiencies.

This has several benefits from a business standpoint:

  • Less vehicle idling, less time spent in traffic and lower overall fuel use
  • Less wear and tear on your fleet and, as a result, improved uptime and fewer maintenance expenses
  • Fewer missed pickups, improved on-time performance and better overall customer satisfaction
  • Routing decisions should take customer complaints into account

Territory Mapping with MapBusinessOnline

MapBusinessOnline is a powerful tool that does more than just plot addresses on a map. Recycling and waste management companies can also use it to create custom-defined sales and service territories. Area mapping allows managers to see where their customers and competitors are and assign resources accordingly. MapBusinessOnline provide Census data and estimated projections, which, along with internal sales data, can augment your existing business intelligence with accurate demographic analysis.

Benefits of sales and customer mapping for waste management companies include improved scheduling, greater accountability and the ability to tailor marketing initiatives accordingly. Growing businesses can use this data to explore opportunities for expansion and determine where an investment in new facilities or additional trucks is likely to yield the best results.

"I just wanted to say thank you for this amazing mapping tool! I've tried a number of sales territory map solutions and this is by far the best. I just (finally!) switched over from MapPoint and this is so much better, I wish I had switched sooner. Your videos and blog are also really helpful, though most things I have figured out on my own. It looks like I also have a lot more to discover as I explore the data visualization tools. Thanks again!"

"We've tried the REST now we are using the BEST. After searching and trying other mapping programs for our delivery operations team and finding that we just couldn't get all the features that we required, we finally found MapBusinessOnline. Not only did it have all the features we needed including Longitude/Latitude and optimizing delivery routes, but it provided us tons of other bells and whistles. MBO proved to be a superb tool for our operations team to create routes and territories with the click of a few buttons while also allowing our reporting team to make beautiful maps that help our executive team visualize the story the data was telling. We are using this for the 2nd year in a row and will be renewing when it is time again. We pride ourselves at offering cutting edge applications to our millions of readers and subscribers worldwide and love that MBO helps us stay ahead of the technology curve by continuing to update their product and features. The release of MBO for the Desktop was a great addition and only helps make using the product even easier. To the staff at MBO — Keep up the great work!"

"I have been using MapBusinessOnline for about 8 months and couldn’t be happier with the services it provides. I have employees and myself who map around 250 routes monthly for our sales team. The interface is easy-to-use and the abilities are exactly what I need. My sales team finds the maps and step by step routes easy to follow and accurate. My store lists change every quarter and the uploading system allows me to quickly upload a new list and categorize the account by priority using colors and shapes. I have also used the heat mapping capabilities and found those easy to customize and quick to use. As with any advanced software, this does take a week or two to learn the more complex features, but it is well worth the time invested. This is the software I would have designed if I was to create one myself. Great job!!!"
