First Total Automation Software for Renderers Introduced Today by BIS Computer Solutions at Industry’s National Conference

The first ever software solution for automating the entire transportation and financial service cycles for the rendering and byproducts industries was introduced today by BIS Computer Solutions at the National Renderers Association’s 80th annual conference in Naples, FL.

Known as the BIS Commodities & Byproducts Application, the software automates pickup-delivery orders, scheduling, tracking, invoicing, accounting, customized pricing, raw material and finished goods inventory. It also computes yields for renderers and byproduct companies, eliminating those manual functions.

The application also automates the transportation and financial service cycles for the grease trap, pumping and milling industries and is offered as a single incorporated solution or a standalone industry-specific version.

“By bringing the benefits of automation to the rendering industry’s most intensive labor functions, we believe users can realize an estimated 20% to 30% or more in annual cost savings for those specific functions and boost workflow productivity by a substantial percentage,” says Michael Macho, president of Mobile BIS, a subsidiary of BIS Computer Solutions of La Crescenta, CA.

Mobile technology, providing constant communications with route drivers, is a key feature of the application, contends Macho. All drivers carry a Psion Workabout Pro G3 hand-held mobile device which keeps the driver and customers “informed in real time of pick-up requirements, scheduling changes, any adjustments to the order and makes the shipments and transportation process traceable, accountable and more responsive to the customer’s requirements,” he adds.

The application has various modules available: Route management functions that specify the exact days between pickups; inventory control including estimates based on orders in-house and actuals; all accounting functions, including the use of Jacobsen rates for commodity rebates and customer specific pricing.

Says Macho: “We are confident the cost-savings plus the automation and mobility features of this application will have a dramatic impact on the revenues and profits of renderers and commodity companies that have been bogged down far too long with slow and inefficient manual processes.”
