As consensus builds around the need of Environment, Sustainability and Governance (ESG), our client is thriving as one of the largest metal recycling companies in the Philippines. Established with warehouses all over the region, the collection of scrap metals has been a complex process. The increasing volume of inflow and outflow of materials involve tedious records and has made manual tracking more and more difficult.

To scale up their operations, this client has searched for tailored technological solution to streamline their business processes.

Business challenges & opportunities

While the headquarter of our client is in Manila, its warehouses are scattered far from the city, taking up to 2 hours of travel. With the geographical distance and disconnected hardware, it was a challenge for the senior managers to oversee multiple sites.

At the collection stage of scrap metals, there was also insufficient visual and digital proof to record a transaction, resulting in limited visibility of operations. Staff members were using basic programs such as Microsoft Excel to manually track operations, which was prone to mistakes and was time-consuming.
