Metro Compactor Service Inc., the Brampton, Ontario based specialist in waste and recycling equipment,  has launched iSMART Generation 2, a next generation IoT-enabled system which the company says will allow for remote troubleshooting and fullness diagnostics on customers' waste equipment anytime, anywhere. 

As private and municipal hauling costs in Canada continue to grow, facility managers, multi-residential property owners, and large retailers across the country are feeling the strain of increasing costs in their entire waste stream and they are looking for sustainable, cost-effective alternatives. Metro Compactor Service's newly unveiled iSMART Generation 2 technology comes as an answer to these challenges.

 iSMART's two-pronged approach to waste equipment and services: asset management to reduce the overall equipment cost over its life, and fullness diagnostics to drive efficiency in haulage costs, helps organizations reach and surpass their sustainability and waste efficiency goals. The iSMART Gen 2 platform is an enabler for the company's new service model, as it shifts from on-demand service to a predictive and proactive approach. This approach combines technological, logisti-cal, and manpower resources under one roof.
 
"iSMART focuses on the long-term performance of waste equipment, which is a big shift for the indus-try," said Danny Mauti, CEO of Metro Compactor Service Inc. "We have a service first approach toward all our relationships. Our goal is a reduction in the overall carbon footprint of managing their waste- including fewer trucks, fewer bins, less downtime, and longer equipment life. Bottom line is, less of your time and resources are devoted to dealing with garbage."
 
iSMART Generation 2: How it works
High-grade industrial sensors monitor fullness and all key equipment performance indicators. Real-time diagnostic information is uploaded to the cloud where thresholds are set, error messages are monitored, and preventative maintenance can be scheduled. The iSMART web portal and live dash-board track all data and insights and report on errors which could include low oil levels, damaged plugs, disconnected hoses or a stopped motor. Insight into the condition and operation of the waste equip-ment leads to more efficient and sustainable overall system performance. 
 
"Waste equipment service is never going to be the same," said Mauti. "Through technology enabled service partnerships and single provider simplicity, we give companies peace of mind." 
 
Metro Compactor Services demoed iSMART technology this week at PM EXPO AT THE BUILDINGS SHOW, held December 4 - 5 at Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
