Reconomy and BRE strike software connection
Reconomy, a Shropshire-based UK provider of outsourced recycling and resource management services, has developed a link between its customer database and that of building science centre BRE’s environmental and site monitoring software, SmartWaste.
Using the newest application programming interface (API) technology – a way of letting applications communicate with one another – data entered into Reconomy’s online waste management portal can be automatically synced up with the SmartWaste system, meaning customers won’t need to duplicate their data input.
The technology will link the Reconomy Portal, which provides information on material movements and proof of service, current and historical invoices and data on waste management – such as waste types, volumes, and collection and disposal locations – with SmartWaste’s online system. SmartWaste’s application allows organisations to collect data across multiple projects in one place, manage compliance and track performance against targets.
Commenting on the link up, Reconomy’s Chief Information Officer Jody Fullman said: “The successful integration of The Reconomy Portal with BRE’s SmartWaste system is another example of how we are utilising technology to further improve the customer experience and remove the ‘hassles’ regularly associated with waste management. We recognise that continued investment in technology is key to supporting our ongoing growth and in bringing us closer to our customers”
As SmartWaste is part of the BRE Group, customers using the system can also connect to other products in the group such as BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method).
Matt Bransby, SmartWaste’s Commercial Lead, added: “Our partnership with Reconomy to help deliver fast, efficient and accurate data autonomously is a huge step forward in SmartWaste’s development. Giving our customers the ability to reduce time spent on data entries is the next step in our growth.”
