Compology, a camera-based dumpster monitoring provider, announced it can now directly integrate its container data directly into any waste enterprise resource planning, accounting or dispatch software through its newly developed Compology API.
“We’ve always approached our product offerings from the viewpoint of the user, making sure that we’re delivering the value our customers need to operate more efficiently,” said Ben Chehebar, chief product officer at Compology, in a statement. “While our software is highly intuitive and presents dumpster data in a way that makes it highly actionable, we realize that some customers have already built processes around their proprietary or other third-party software. We want to accommodate all of our clients and future customers who find value in our complete dumpster data offering. That’s why we’ve expanded our product line to offer software integration capability through our API, making our data available outside of the Compology app for the first time.”
Compology said it built its integration capability to provide customers—whether a small to midsize business that wants to grow rapidly or a complex enterprise—the benefits of increasing productivity without complication, controlling overhead costs and giving full access to data for easier customization.
According to the company, the integration capability allows users to:
- Get a consolidated view of operations: Integration helps save time and resources by consolidating necessary information all into one place, making sure operations are running as efficiently as possible.
- Avoid drastically modifying processes: With processes already in place, integration helps limit the extent to which those operations need to be modified and reduces the likelihood for a new hire or extensive training for new software expertise.
- Gain more control over data: Access to the API also gives users direct access to raw data. Access to this information allows for customized reports and data-driven analysis. Additionally, access to raw data makes it easier to share custom datasets cross-functionally or with external stakeholders.
Compology noted it is working with clients such as Next Day Dumpsters, RecycleSmart and Waste Management and integrated with software like AMCS ScrapRunner, CRO and SAP. Hear more from Compology’s Chehebar on the decision to offer software integration:
