The software at the City Landfill will be getting an upgrade.
“This new software, actually, that we have selected will allow us to provide better customer service. it will also provide us with some operational and administrative efficiencies,” says Karen Dela Rosa, the General Manger of Waste Services.
The current software at the landfill that operates the inbound and outbound loads; processes financial transactions; and stores tonnage information for reporting, budgeting and long-range landfill planning will be expiring at the end of this year.
It will be replaced by Paradigm Software at the cost of $37, 581. 16. City Council had approved $75, 000 for the project, so this is coming in $37, 418.84 under budget.
This software offers capabilities for scheduled reporting, allowing those who use the landfill regular to receive reports on loads and make sure it’s accurate. The software also has tracking capabilities.
“If we do have disputes in loads, for example, we are able to take snapshot of that load to make sure we are accurately billing for that specific load or that specific transaction,” says Dela Rosa.
She adds that they hope to have the software in place by mid October to ensure a seamless transition come January when the old software expires. The software will need upgrades along the way, but Dela Rosa says it should last indefinitely depending on how technology develops along the way.
