"Smart EOL gives us the ability to understand how each operation contributes to our overall profitability – or not. This information has had significant impact on our day-to-day decision-making.” - Michael Gross, Zanker Recycling

Today Eco-Catalyst announces general availability of Smart EOL, its Cloud-based Software-as-a-Service application in the US and Canada. Designed to bring profitable decision-making to recyclers and materials recovery facilities (MRFs), Smart EOL enables the design, tracking and optimization of product end of life (EOL) operations and programs for greatest profitability and sustainability.
“The biggest challenge for recyclers and MRFs is profitability in an environment of contaminated recyclables, commodity volatility and market competition,” said Ramesh Srinivasan, Founder and CEO of Eco-Catalyst Inc. “With Smart EOL, for the first time, recyclers and MRFs can leverage transaction level pricing, along with cost streamlining opportunities for improved profitability.”
Achieving visibility to revenue and price trends for inbound/outbound materials and material mix trends is critical for recyclers and MRFs to make pricing and order fulfillment decisions confidently. Without that visibility, islands of data and the challenge of managing them make it difficult to determine how to optimize the design and operation of their businesses. The result? Revenue and profit opportunities are often missed.
Since the initial announcement of Smart EOL in August, additional features have been added, included at the request of pilot customers who have been using it for six months and longer. These features include the ability to track on-hand inventory of materials and containers and facility loading to perform customer order fulfillment.
“The lack of reliable information is our worst enemy,” says Michael Gross, of Zanker Recycling. “We operate six different recycling operations on our property, each interacting with the next. Smart EOL gives us the ability to understand how each operation contributes to our overall profitability – or not. This information has had significant impact on our day-to-day decision-making.”
Smart EOL is now available online with Six-Month Subscription terms, and Eco-Catalyst is also offering a 30-day No-Risk Trial that accesses the full application using sample data.
