Purchases Module

When you purchase material, you must be able to perform this task as quickly and efficiently as possible. You must also be compliant with an ever-increasing list of federal, state and local anti-theft laws. In addition, you must provide deterrents against internal theft by dishonest employees and external theft by people that want to steal your cash.

Our studies have shown that Purchasing has become the most intricate activity that is performed by any recycling business. We have also found very few industry players that excel at all of the above. Horror stories abound. Call us and we will relate many of them to you.

Purchasing is where you make your money. Above all, you must, without fail, “buy it right”. However, if you fail to comply with applicable anti-theft laws, you can be fined or even shut down. Mastery of all of the above is critical in today’s economic and regulatory environments.

ScrapWareSV has an extremely shallow learning curve and enables you to perform all of the above. Anyone with limited computer skills can quickly learn to operate this module. ScrapWareSV is also flexible enough to keep you ahead of the curve with regard to ever-expanding anti-theft laws. Contact us to schedule a Web Demo of ScrapWareSV!
