Kelseyville, California-based PopScrap.com Inc., the parent company of WeighPay Solutions, has released a point of sale product (POS) for the recycling and waste industry named BestMadePOS.com (BMPOS).
BMPOS is designed to capture a new income stream for the scrap and waste industry, the company says, adding that it offers a fully integrated system with credit card payment processing, customer relationship management (CRM) tools and an SMS text message marketing tool. PopScrap says the text messaging tool has been shown to increase daily tickets counts as much as 30 percent.
In a news release announcing the new product, the company says, “We have uncovered a growing trend in the scrap recycling industry; our customers want to capture back some of the money that they are paying out for scrap materials. They understand they already have a captive audience with new cash in their pockets. Many are selling drinks, snacks, ice creams and other quick-serve items. Some of the larger yards are selling new products, such as batteries, tools, new metal supplies, pipe and pipe fittings, welding supplies and used products brought over from their scrap facility.”
The company adds that its POS product can handle sales, purchases and invoices using the same ticket screen and offers integrated accounts payable and accounts receivable with real-time Quick Books connections.
BMPOS is a "first of its kind" POS system for industrial companies, PopScrap says, with a strong focus on B2B relationships while offering fast over-the-counter B2C sales and purchasing features.
PopScrap customers can choose whether they would like to store their data using the company’s cloud storage solution, on a local server or on a new hybrid solution that connects local and cloud servers.
With the hybrid solution, customers can runs tickets even if the internet goes down and can sync back in real-time with their online (cloud) back office, the company says.
