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.
PopScrap.com Inc., has committed to the 2015 ISRI Convention in Vancouver Canada in late April 2015.
PopScrap will be unveiling its latest software products and hardware solutions to the industry leaders and is sure to wow the entire audience with its ground breaking industry leading solutions.
As soon as we get our booth numbers assigned we will re-post so that you can find us at the show.
2014 has been another banner year of tremndous growth for PopScrap.com and we look forward to the release of our new flagship software product, " SCRAP SHIELD PRO" a.k.a ScrapShieldPro or SSPro. This new product is the accumulation of 4 years of development with our worldwide customer base providing the intel for the new features.
Faster and easier are the hallmarks of SSPro and will provide for a more robust scale user interface while giving managers simple to use online back office for instant real time data from any connected device.
Getting a handle on your scrap metal compliance can be a daunting, expensive and a time consuming task.

Finding the right compliance software vendor can be difficult since your laws are constantly changing and not easy to understand. PopScrap has dedicated consultants that have mastered your state laws and are already working with your state to meet and or exceed your scrap metal state law requirements.
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.
CalRecycle is changing its CRV prices for all California Redemption Centers that are licensed to buy and sell bottle beverage containers.

There is no better way to wrap this software product up then to say, PopScrap is..."So Advanced...It's Simple.
"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.
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.

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.)
Use your Android smart phone and tablet to gather compliance images, customer info and material weights.
All of this can be completed in less than 1 minute using the Weigh & Pay app.
