Project "Free-Scrap-App"

Project "FREE-SCRAP-APP" by PopScrap.com

PopScrap.com has been challenging the status quo since 2011 and offers another game changing product for the scrap metal industry.

PopScrap is expanding it’s "Free-Scrap-App" project to a select group of Scrap Metal Yards in the Golden State in early 2015.

After getting 2 years of feedback from yards that are already benefiting from our initial roll out, we have decided to bring on a limited number of new participants in 2015 in California.

Each project participant showed significant improvements in all areas of yard management and higher profits when fully participating in Project "Free Scrap App", especially for off site owners and managers.

Each participant receives free scrap software and hardware package with full training and install assistance with the compliance based hardware. Each yard agrees to sell their materials to our processing partner who happens to be the largest bottle beverage buyer in the state of California. The processor handles the dispatching, shipping logistics and payments for materials sold in the program.

We released the first version of this new pilot project back in 2013 with great success. We have built a great loyal customer base using the "Project Free Scrap App". says Stacy Duty, President of PopScrap.com

This new project will now be opened to any scrap yards or recycling center in California and is available to qualifying centers on a limited basis. Based on project results from this next phase, we will evaluate as we go, and potentially roll this out nationwide later this year.

Our project participants are reporting higher profits and greater control of their scrap business. Getting control of the numbers and the logistics is key to making profits in volatile scrap metal commodities markets.

Given that most compliance based software scrap yard solutions that were created in the 21st Century, that offer new touch screen computers with all the compliance hardware and cameras can cost well over $40,000, not including annual fees that can go as high as $5,000 per year for maintenance including software updates and tech support.

Why is Project "Free-Scrap-App" successful?

The scrap processor is the key!
PopScrap is working with the worlds largest bottle beverage recycler in the State,RePlanet. Together we have created a complete turn-key package that allows the scrap yard or CRV center to get the #1 scrap yard software solution for free by agreeing to let RePlanet be their processor for all CRV materials.

Recycling centers and scrap yards get top market prices for their CalRecycle qualified bottle beverage materials, they can also opt in to sell their scrap metals, as we can offer top market prices for all metals.

CRV centers can get scales, shipping containers, software, hardware, training and install for a turn key business approach.

Our combined strengths allow each yard to buy smart with the best tools in the industry and get the best prices when selling.

We get the first-right-of-refusal to buy all of your materials at the highest market prices, if we fail to give fair market value, then you sell to the highest bidder, but RePlanet gets first right to match the prices and conditions surrounding the sale of the materials including the cost of shipping.

Participants wanting to cancel the contract can pay for the hardware and start paying the monthly hosting fees and can start selling your materials elsewhere at any time. It's that simple. A great way to get free software.

We are confident that we can offer highest prices for your materials and help you run a profitable business, this is what allows us to make such a attractive offer.

Its a win-win for recycling yard owners, get the #1 online software tools with the #1 buyer in the State and get the highest prices for your materials. A dream come true for California Recycling Centers.

It does not matter if the business is behind a grocery store, in a parking lot or a full service scrap metal yard in the state of California, call to see if you qualify today.

Start out 2015 in the right direction, get a built in buyer that helps you buy right and sell right. Know your profits before you purchase and or sell, track your inventory and shipping with the best online software tools available.

Best of all, pay nothing out of your pocket, PopScrap and RePlanet are here to service your yard, help you make more profits in 2015 and get you the best tools in the industry.

Expert Advice To Grow Your Scrap Metal Business in 2015

Expert Advice To Grow Your Scrap Metal Business in 2015

Top 3 Reasons in 2015 that Scrappers will choose your scrap yard over the others.

I have also listed the fastest and most reliable methods to grow your scrap metal business in the coming year.

Below I have listed the 3 basic reasons scrappers choose to do business and having the right location isn't as high on the list as you would think, they will drive the extra miles for better prices, faster transactions and personal service, but not always in that order.

After installing over 500 yards since 2006, I have gained some in depth insight on into the mind of the scrapper (a scary place). Even though I have listed prices as the #1 reason they would choose your business, its actually more a myth than reality. The truth is, they want personal service with reasonable prices and to get in and get out as quickly as possible.

In my experience, most people scrap their metals because its the "right" thing to do for the environment and getting paid is secondary.

Actually about 85% of people who bring in metals are not educated enough to know stainless steel from aluminum and have no clue what scrap metal is worth.

About 15% who represent actual scrappers running their own scrap metal business. The top 15% know the metals and the prices and usually bring in the most metals on a daily basis, these are the ones who put price as #1 and personal service below that. It's all about the cash!

1. Scrap Metal Prices

2. Speed of transaction and payment

3. Personal Service

So, the question remains, should your scrap business cater to the 15% or to the 85%, most scrap yards price their metals to meet the demands of the 15% and therefore are giving away money to the 85% unnecessarily.

The better solution is to have a online software system that allows you to have custom price sheets for your "real scrappers" and then let your public prices serve the 85%. Then take the top 15% out to lunch, explain in detail your "special pricing" and how you want to incentivize them to do business with your scrap yard.

Having an online software management software system allows you to update price sheets and communicate with your brokers and customers from anywhere in the world on any device. This is very important in a volatile commodities based industry.

Another suggestion that has proven results is to create a "rewards program", make sure your software also offers a "Leader Board Report" so you can post the leaders and create a friendly competition amongst your leading scrappers.

Keeping track of your customers lets them know that you care and are paying attention to their business.

So, at the end of the day, Personal Service takes the #1 spot.

1. Personal Service

2. Speed of Transactions

3. Prices

Let me explain, why I believe "Speed of Transactions" comes in 2nd above the price.

Since 85% of your business is made up of the occasional scrapper, they have other lives to get back to, they are not full time scrappers as is your other 15% that would put prices at the top of this list.

Cater to the middle of your base, create relationships with your customers, get their email accounts and start sending the receipts to their email account. This allows you to create special email announcements and the scrappers, all 100% feel like they are apart of your community, knowing special holiday hours, special price adjustments and other scrap community news is important.

If you want to stand out in any business, get to know your scrapper, cater to their #1 needs and you will be surprised at how you can lower your prices at bit, make more profits, have happier customers and keep your employees longer. So to wrap this up, here are is the real list to a more profitable 2015.

1. Get to know your customer and communicate with them when they are not at the yard.

2. Lower your public prices and give your "Special Customers" special pricing ASAP.

3. Buy a state of the art software system that improves the experience at the scale and cashier booth so your customers don't have to wait on technology, everyone hates slow technology.

4. This should be #1 on your to-do list in 2015, buy PopScrap Software.

2. Get the full training package so you can utilize all the 21st Century features such as FaceBook and Twitter price posting, emailing customers as payments are completed.

3. Start a LeaderBoard Competition to grow your scrap metal business in 2015.

4. Start emailing or facebooking your customers in 2015 to make them an important part of your daily business.

PopScrap.com offers full social media features for price postings and a free mass email feature that allows you to email all your customers instantly and dont forget to ask for email addresses at the cashier booth.

What to look for when buying a new Scrap Yard Point of Purchase Software System

What to look for when buying a NEW Point of Purchase System

Making big decisions in tough market conditions takes in-depth information.

Understanding the complexities of purchasing a state-of-the-art metal buying software system is something that yard owners cannot take lightly anymore, thanks in large part to overbearing compliance laws and sophisticated hardware communication requirements in modern network environments.

When making a decision to upgrade to a new Point of Purchase (POP) software system one can quickly find its much more complex than just replacing an old clunky PC and pen and paper system. Finding a provider that offers an affordable system that takes full responsibility for network connections, hardware sales and technical support is also a must find.

Most owners fail to understand just how many people are affected when the scrap yard owner decides buys a new POP software system.

When deciding to make a significant investment and joining the 21 century scrap yard business owner, the following should be considered.

The Scale Environment
The overall scale environment is what the scrappers will notice first and this experience will determine future visits and whether or not they recommend the yard to other scrappers.

So how does a Point of Purchase software system fit into this?

Scale operators: efficient scrap yards employ friendly yet firm buyers. They need to have the ability to grade metals in such a way to make the owner money and yet keep the scrapper happy. The more educated the scrappers get, the more the scale operators need the advance tools to keep the metals moving across the scale both accurately and profitably. If the operator fails to produce a fun fast environment the scale area can easily turn nasty and the scrappers get anxious and feisty and people stop coming back.

As yards get busy on Saturday morning the overall speed and reliability of the POP system is paramount. Gathering compliance images and information is a must and can cost the owner thousands and possibly land the owner and scale operator in jail if compliance is not met on every single ticket.

Scale operators using a tablet POP system to buy metals have several advantages. It lets operators buy and grade on the spot, know their price positioning, apply shrinkage for contamination and or give customer bonuses on the fly with full visibility for the scrapper and the scrap yard owner.

With the combination of the on board cameras and touch screens the operator can easily gather images and signatures at the point of purchase. The overall cost of tablets is less than half the cost of purchasing a PC, a touch screen, a camera and a signature pad and has several bonus features such as onboard internet services and back up battery, so if the yard loses its primary internet service and or power is out, ticket can continue without pause or stress.

Offering the scrapper full on screen visibility during the selling/grading process allows the scrapper and the operator to have the much needed conversations about grade and price before the scrapper causes a massive scene at the cashier booth. This is a common issue at most unprepared and ill-equipped scrap yards.

So what should one consider when choosing a POP that will best assist the scale operator?

  • How simple and user friendly is the software interface?
  • How easy was it for the scale operator to learn?
  • How many workstation PC's or tablets will be needed?
  • How easy is it to lock down the costly hardware investment?
  • How fast can the operator split line items into two material descriptions?
  • How easy is it for the operator to take away for contamination?
  • How easy is it for the operator to add to the price for bonuses?
  • How fast does the software gather compliance images?

The Cashier Booth
For cashiers and managers, the top priority is ensuring that line at the cashier area does not start backing up, compliance is met and scrapper’s payments are accurate. Getting images of the scrappers ID, fingerprint, signature and face shot are paramount to staying in compliance with the law.

Speed of data entry is the number one concern for cashiers, secondly having super large touch screen button interface that forces full compliance rules and will not allow a ticket to be completed unless all compliance rules are met. At the end of the day the cashier and manager need a POP system that is accurate for payment options, they must split payments, delay payments, pay part cash, pay part check and then have everything detailed in the daily report.

Cash balance levels are the heart and soul of the industry. Having a cloud based POP system allows off site managers and owners to instantly log onto their phones and see cash balances and checks written to keep the scrappers happy.

What to consider when choosing a POP to aid cashiers and managers:

  • How easy is the payout interface and is it quick?
  • How easily does the software allow for delay pay and split pay tickets?
  • How fast can they check for metal grading accuracy?
  • How easy it to see that compliance laws were met?

The Back Office
The back office software is the key to managing the overall process and that’s impossible without real time information from the scale station, cashier station and any commercial mobile buyers.

Getting real time information in a commodity based industry is exceedingly important as timing is everything and seconds can cost the yard thousands.

Getting into the cloud is a must in today’s turbulent metal markets, once the ticket is completed, the scrapper is paid the back office needs to know the purchase totals and instantly know the average price paid for all metals and have this accessible on any device from anywhere in the world.

When evaluating a back office software component make sure it has the following:

  • Fast and simple reporting engine with complete daily, weekly and monthly purchase reports.
  • Accurate First-in and First-out inventory with average price paid and current market positioning.
  • The ability to create bins and boxes with barcodes for net and gross weights when loading trucks.
  • Simple to use shipping reports with easy reconciliation features.
  • Commercial Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable features.
  • Easy to run reports, like profit and loss reports.
  • How fast can the manager update system prices?
  • Formula price sheets for specific customers or industries.
  • Ability to post to Facebook and Twitter buttons built in.
  • Emailing price sheets to customers.
  • Quickly create quotes and convert to scale tickets.
  • Full accounting software integration.

There is a lot that goes into a back office software, make sure that it has real time data given the complexities and legalities of mandatory long term data storage, make sure the software provider is in the cloud and has back up servers in place with offsite storage.

Back office software is really the meat of the conversation when evaluating any software product. In today’s mobile world it’s a simple choice to go with the use of tablets or smartphones in the field or in the shop. A 21 century software provider will offer a super easy app scale software for the front end with an online back office so the managers and owners evaluate the purchases, see compliance images, create shipping reports and manage customer history records.

It should not be overlooked, make sure the new POP system connects to scale indicators, has password protected weights and prices, integrates with accounting software, integrates with cash and coin dispensers and last but not least is it affordably priced for the average monthly volume of metals coming through the yard?

Ultimately, the POP software will affect every person at the scrap yard, from the scale house to the cashier and most importantly the scrapper. It provides instant communication between scale operators, cashiers, managers and provides real-time online information while the owner is on vacation.

DOJ Arrest 5 for Recycling Fraud

In September and October 2014 5 were arrested on felony charges for frauding the state of California, illegally claiming California Redemption Value refunds on beverage containers that had already been redeemed.

They face, if convicted, six years and four months in jail and $25,000 besides paying back the money they allegedly stole.

All of this happened in California's central valley Turlock and Modesto areas with 12 warrants being served by the Department of Justice's Sacramento Recycle Fraud Team. 

$125,00 cash was seized and bail was set at $250,000 each.

Nearly 250,000 pounds via 22 truckloads of beverage containers were also removed from the Ranch and warehouse.

California's bottle bill is a cash redemption program that allows residents who purchase beverage containers to reclaim the $0.05 that paid when the beverage was purchased and $.010 on larger beverage containers.  California's bottle beverage program has been teetering on insolvency for years now and fraudulent cases like the ones mentioned above have been the target of investigators in recent years.

It's become evident that recycling yard owners need to get into the modern age, get computerized and start playing by the rules. The days of using paper receipts and logs are behind us and owners need to be pushed into the 21st Century.

PopScrap.com Inc., a California corporation had developed a smartphone app named the "Weigh & Pay" app for Android devices.

Over the last 2 years PopScrap has developed a relationship with California largest bottle beverage recycling company, RePlanet has over 750+ locations in California. http://replanetusa.com/ 

Recently RePlanet has released the software to its commercial locations who are using the Android app on Samsung tablets and Bluetooth printers enabling its users to electronically create DR6 reports along with time cards and dispatching.

How to save your scrap company $10,000

Saving your company money, large amounts of money, costs money!

"It costs money, because it saves you money"

In the scrap recycling business there are many many ways to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars. Buying new equipment is the funnest and the #1 choice, but did you know that not being in compliance with scrap metal laws can cost as much as $10,000 and put a felony on your record? doesnt sound fun to me.

The fines in the new Michigan scrap metal law can run up to 5 years in prison and $10,000 in fines.

http://www.legislature.mi.gov/documents/2013-2014/publicact/htm/2014-PA-0099.htm

Scrap Yards need a product and service that will monitor your scrap metal compliance laws and alert you when compliance is not met, this type of service would ensure that all transactions are fully state compliance and could literately save your company thousands of dollars in fines, bail money and keep you from having a criminal record.

Getting images of all materials purchased, images of customers selling and receiving the money, all vehicle info, images of ID's & drivers licenses, fingerprints and electronic signatures along with following the correct pay out restrictions will get you into compliance.

 

If only there was a cloud (internet) based software provider that offered an affordable and reliable solution this would solve the problem once and for all.

New laws are now dictating that your service also be internet based and accessible to law enforcement like Sec. 11. (1) of the new Michigan law. 

While scrap yard owners should be very concerned about getting into and staying in compliance finding an affordable and reliable solution has been tough in the past. Costs can run as high as $100,000 and usually are not the easiest to use software products.

This is where a combination of scrap metal compliance software and compliance monitoring will prove to be next BIG product in the scrap industry.

PopScrap.com has created a cloud based compliance monitoring solution for the scrap recycling industry and then perfected it with the usage from 1000's of users world wide over the last 4 years.

Want to save money, then spend the correct money in the right places, get the professionals on board to monitor your compliance and internal theft issues today.

5 Ways to Protect Your Scrap Yard After the 2014 Michigan Scrap Laws Take Effect

In my humble scrap opinion, while the legislators of Michigan's new HOUSE BILL 4593 are commended for even caring enough to get involved in scrap metal theft, their efforts in Michigan have proven once again to favor the mega scrap yards and penalize the small operators while not stopping or slowing down metal theft at all. 

The new Michigan scrap metal laws are presenting themselves as quite a challenge for all sizes of recycling centers throughout the state.

Read more about Michigan's new law

The toughest part of the new law is that scrap dealers cannot pay more than $25 in cash on the spot unless; 

A. The seller can redeem their scrap ticket using a atm type card or encrypted receipt at a ATM machine located on premise.

(Not quite sure how this is different from handing the cash to the customer, it forces the scrap yard to spend $15,000-$30,000, but does not stop theft, nor does it stop the seller from getting instant cash, it only penalizes the smaller operations who cannot afford to buy an ATM machine. In my opinion a very poorly written bill, again.)
