Sixty Years Combined Experience Delivers Superior, Integrated Technologies

            RENTON, Wash. and SAN DIEGO – May 13, 2015 – Creative Microsystems Inc., a global leader of on-board truck scales and developer of LoadMan® weighing systems and Soft-Pak, a premier software solution provider for the waste and recycling industry, today announced a technology partnership and integration. The partnership provides mutual customers a comprehensive solution delivering accurate, real-time customer, load and route data to the driver and back-office instantly.

“We’re very pleased to partner with Soft-Pak to deliver an integrated solution to our joint customers,” said Larry Santi, president of Creative Microsystems Inc. “Having accurate and reliable data is critical to the success of haulers in managing their businesses, and the combination of LoadMan scales with the Soft-Pak on-board computer (OBC) and fleet management software is a powerful solution.”

LoadMan on-board truck scales are simple to install on the full range of refuse trucks and work seamlessly with Soft-Pak’s Mobile-Pak OBC. Patented weigh-in-motion technology from LoadMan accurately weighs each load, net vehicle weight along with a date and time stamp. Mobile-Pak receives this information and makes it available to drivers and customer service representatives who use the Soft-Pak software.

Municipalities, university campuses and military bases have ambitious waste reduction initiatives, with many driving to zero waste. These efforts, combined with an increased emphasis on waste diversion, create a more complex environment for haulers. As such, haulers require modern technology, better data and enhanced reporting to effectively manage their business and the needs of their customers.

“We rely on the LoadMan/Soft-Pak system to accurately and reliably weigh loads and provide the necessary data our customers require to measure waste diversion,” said Michael Allgeier, director of information technology at Texas Disposal Systems. “From an IT perspective, LoadMan and Soft-Pak work together seamlessly, the installation is simple and maintenance is low. We’re very pleased with this solution that works as it should and when we do need support LoadMan is very responsive and partners in our success.”

“We’re delighted to partner with LoadMan on-board scales to complement Soft-Pak’s on board computer solution,” said Brian Porter, president of Soft-Pak. “Customers are requesting more access to data, and the delivery of that data is automated and easily accessible. We are excited about how well our product has been received and the partnership opportunities this allows for.”

LoadMan and Soft-Pak will be exhibiting at Waste Expo in June (booths #1557 and #1631, respectively).
