AMCS (Ireland) - Press Release: AMCS DAT enables 24/7 assistant-free weighbridge operations to accelerate customers’ top-line growth.
AMCS has launched its Driver Assisted Terminal (DAT), a stand-alone terminal facilitating unmanned weighing operations to enable waste and recycling companies to automate their inbound and outbound weighbridge transactions. Easy to use workflows guide the driver through the process driving efficiency in operations with the full weighing process completed in just seven seconds.
AMCS DAT, available on AMCS Platform, empowers 24/7 assistance-free weighbridge operations increasing asset utilisation, reducing operating costs and improving the service to customers by facilitating self-service weighing at any time and any location. The launch of the AMCS DAT immediately follows the release of AMCS Platform 8.2 in February, the first of three releases this year which, amongst other things, revolved around smart user experience, enhanced recycling capabilities and improved customer management.
Real-time data exchange with the weighbridge:
AMCS DAT is a stand-alone terminal combining weatherproof hardware with integrated software to support weighing in and out at landfills, transfer stations, MRFs and other material-handling operations. The centralised weighing system integrates with multiple systems including RFID and weighbridge indicators. Real-time data with the weighbridge is exchanged to the centralised ERP system providing organisation-wide consolidated information for customisable reports and immediate billing.
Providing the driver with a smart, intuitive user experience:
The AMCS DAT is running on the Android operating system, providing the driver with a smart intuitive user experience that includes a colour touch screen display that guides the driver through step-by-step and simplified on-screen prompts. The system authenticates each driver through an RFID card automatically identifying the job the driver is assigned to captures the weight against the job and prints a ticket at the time of weighing in and out as proof of service. The Driver Assisted Terminal is very durable with a touch screen display that can operate in any weather condition. In addition to that, AMCS DAT also minimises risks like eliminating liability and safety concerns occurring when drivers are outside of their vehicles.
