DecisionPoint Wins Contract to Provide Field Mobility Solutions for RecycleBank
Foothill Ranch, CA — March 25, 2010– DecisionPoint Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:DNPI), a leading enterprise mobility solutions provider, today announced that RecycleBank, a rewards program that motivates households to increase recycling and make greener lifestyle choices, has chosen DecisionPoint to design, implement and support RecycleBank’s Asset Management Platform (AMP) in the field.
RecycleBank currently provides their recycling rewards program across 26 states and in the UK using RFID-enabled recycling carts and GPS location technology to track household participation. Specially equipped recycling trucks weigh household’s recyclables and RecycleBank converts that weight into points that can be redeemed at over 2,500 local and national businesses. Collectively, RecycleBank communities have dramatically increased recycling and have saved over 4.6 million trees and over 310 million gallons of water through their cumulative recycling efforts.
DecisionPoint and RecycleBank created a customized mobile asset tracking program to help setup, deploy, and maintain the population of recycling carts needed to run the RecycleBank program in each community. The AMP system utilizes barcode, RFID, and GPS data in the field to track the deployment and maintenance of all the specially-equipped recycling carts. DecisionPoint developed the proprietary mobile computer software to do this. In addition, RecycleBank has subscribed to DecisionPoint’s MobileCare™ ongoing support offering which enables RecycleBank to support the system.
RecycleBank plans to provide the AMP system to its clients in order to help them reduce the time and labor associated with managing the deployment and maintenance of the recycling carts. The AMP system includes all the hardware, software, maintenance and support that each community needs.
Beth Kean-Waddell, VP and General Manager of RecycleBank, commented, “We are very proud of our state-of-the-art Asset Management Platform–a combination of an online data portal coupled with specialized mobile computer software. This system makes real-time asset information available for municipalities and haulers and greatly enhances their ability to efficiently manage the overall RecycleBank program. DecisionPoint worked with us to develop and deliver this important time-saving and cost effective system to the field.”
Tom Barber, VP-Marketing for DecisionPoint Systems, stated, “We are delighted to partner with a company such as RecycleBank where green efforts are clearly at the forefront. The AMP system will greatly help RecycleBank communities to track and manage their assets. At the same time it will improve efficiencies and help more households and municipalities increase recycling.”
