LoadMan On-Board Scales Partners With TRUX to Deliver Integrated Data Solution to Haulers

RENTON, WA and CAMBRIDGE, ON--(Marketwired - May 20, 2015) - Creative Microsystems, Inc., a global leader of on-board truck scales and developer of LoadMan® weighing systems, and TRUX Route Management Systems Inc., a leading software solutions provider for the waste and recycling industry, today announced a technology partnership and integration. The partnership provides mutual customers a comprehensive solution delivering accurate, real-time customer, load and route data to the driver and back-office instantly.

"We're very pleased to expand our partner network by adding TRUX, a respected and proven route and waste management software solution," said Larry Santi, founder and president of Creative Microsystems Inc. "Our goal is to help our customers drive efficiency and profitability by providing them with the technology they need to accurately measure loads, collect data, and easily analyze for better business results. We're happy to come together with another industry leader like TRUX to deliver an integrated solution." 

LoadMan on-board truck scales are simple to install on the full range of refuse trucks and work seamlessly with TRUX software applications. Patented weigh-in-motion technology from LoadMan accurately weighs each load, net vehicle weight and provides a date and time stamp. The TRUX Driver Assist application works on any Android-enabled tablet in the cab and transfers data real-time to the back office for immediate use and analysis. 

"The LoadMan/TRUX solution has dramatically improved our ability to create efficiencies, automate processes -- many of which used to be manual -- and better manage our business," said Vince Moceri, president of Windsor Disposal Services. "Our drivers can now solely focus on their routes, while data is being collected automatically and sent to our back office. The integration is seamless and we're very pleased with the reliability, accuracy and ease-of-use of the system. Both companies stand behind their products and are always available to for guidance and support."

"The TRUX/LoadMan solution has closed a substantial gap. It is now possible to obtain accurate, real-time on-board weights from the field with a cost-effective solution. Reliable and accurate weights from LoadMan allow TRUX to dynamically charge for overweight containers in real time as well as establish accurate profitability on all commercial services," said David Ische, vice president of sales and marketing at TRUX.

"We're excited to partner with LoadMan on-board scales, one of the most advanced and reliable truck scales on the market. It's a perfect complement to the TRUX solution," Ische added.

LoadMan and TRUX will be exhibiting at Waste Expo in June (booths #1557 and #1537, respectively).
