Navusoft is our latest operating software platform. This state-of-the-art system provides real-time invoicing. Our drivers carry a hand-held device that can scan the barcode on the side of each container. The device also documents location, date, time, container size, and contents.

Real-time invoicing gives our customers a better understanding of the quantity and types of waste generated and where it originates.

This data can track usage over time in one or multiple locations, spot deficiencies, and identify positive outcomes.
