FleetMind's FleetLink Scales Delivers New Approach to Commercial Waste Weight Management

MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwire - April 27, 2010) - FleetMind, the technology leader for fleet management solutions, today announced FleetLink Scales – a patented new approach to using scales in commercial waste applications. FleetLink Scales is an onboard disposal weight management system that installs easily onto truck lifts and integrates seamlessly with back office systems.

"Until now, commercial waste weight management systems have typically required major truck modifications and been notoriously prone to damage," said Martin Demers, CEO of FleetMind. "Our new FleetLink Scales system is designed to eliminate the key issues associated with current in-market solutions – expensive truck modifications, lack of back-office data correlation, and onerous requirements for ongoing maintenance and re-calibration. We believe FleetLink Scales is a great leap forward for the use of scales in commercial disposal applications."

The FleetLink Scales system provides the following key advantages over current in-market solutions:

  • Costs less. Fleetlink Scales is less complex , more compact and more accurate.
  • Installs easily. Fleetlink Scales installs within a few hours and does not require truck modifications.
  • Seamless back-office integration. Fleetlink Scales integrates easily with back office systems to correlate and update customer information automatically without any manual intervention. No more end-of-day downloads or manual reconciliations!
  • Minimal maintenance. Fleetlink Scales requires virtually no maintenance, and calibration is scheduled annually but rarely required. As it doesn't rely on load cells, the FleetLink Scales system is more reliable and presents a low risk for damage.
  • Real-time data. Fleetlink Scales provides real-time access to data for immediate resolution to customer issues.
  • Accurate billing. Fleetlink Scales identifies extra services and weights for accurate billing.

FleetMind will be unveiling its FleetLink Scales in Booth #2414 at the Waste Expo, May 4-6, in Atlanta, Georgia. For more information, contact: dpadilla (at) fleetmind (dot)com (dpadilla@fleetmind.com)
