Data Management: Dynamically take advantage of opportunities to reduce cost, increase revenue and profit for your business by reducing time and resources required to manage your data

We will bring together the many islands of data critical to your operations – disconnected and distributed scale data, operational summaries (inbound/outbound material mix percentage, volumes, revenues), pricing data, budget plans and actuals — into a single web-based data management system.

Full Cost Management: Improve profitability by prioritizing resource allocation based on true costs

We will solve the lack of cost visibility that clouds your ability to determine if operations are profitable through the creation of a Cost Build-up Model to accurately compute and allocate your costs based on order bundling and disaggregation requirements, and plant level costs structures.

Process Improvement: Improve quality, cost reduction, profitability for your operation

We will Identify and mitigate process and operational inefficiencies that result in loss of
quality and profitability in your collection, sorting and processing systems. We will analyze Financial and Environmental Impact of Process Redesign and Expansion, in-depth Capital Expenditures Planning, Financial and Environmental Projections and Performance Eval- uation. We will base our analyses on key technical, environmental, marketing and business parameters, in conjunction with project planning assumptions.

Procurement & Pricing Optimization: Generate revenue and profit enhancement strategies, while minimizing risk

Design and optimize your procurement contract agreements confidently, with risk analysis and strategies that will leverage volume-based cost reductions and protect your business from negative market pricing risks.
