What does Whitespace do?

We are a waste management software supplier that helps organisations manage their waste operations and accurately collect valuable performance data to inform future strategic decisions. Our solutions have been well received by the waste industry and have been used in other task orientated organisations like deliveries and pest control.

What is Waste Management Software?

Waste management software is designed to help organisations efficiently manage their waste-handling operations. Our software aids in planning, executing, and monitoring the collection, transportation, and disposal of waste, ensuring compliance with regulations and enhancing operational efficiency. It enables users to collect valuable data on their operations, which can be analysed to inform strategic decisions and improve performance. By automating various aspects of waste management processes, such software reduces reliance on paper, minimises manual errors, and streamlines workflows.

What types of businesses do you serve?

Our solutions are available to both public and private sector organisations. Currently we help over 100 local authorities across the UK and 10 large public sector contractors with their waste collection operations. Some of our solutions are also used by small private organisations working in various industries like luxury good deliveries and pest control.

Is waste management software a good investment and what are the key benefits?

Depending on how your operational processes have been set up, investing in waste management solutions may help you work more effectively.

Managing your operations using a fully integrated software solution will reduce your reliance on paper and lead to fewer manual errors. It will accurately capture data to provide valuable insight into your teams’ performance, informing any strategic decisions, and its automation functionality will reduce your administrative time. This will result in fewer enquiries and increase your levels of customer satisfaction.

Our infographic shows how we have helped some councils and we have a range of case studies if you wish to learn more about our solutions.

Can your solutions reduce the number of missed collections?

Yes, using our job management solutions requires your team to complete their jobs in a methodical manner, encouraging them to look at each one individually and carry out the necessary actions before moving to the next one.

If a crew member does not see the resident’s bin by the curb, they can take a picture of the scene as evidence, add any notes and send it to the council’s system where it will be stored alongside a date and time. When the resident calls to enquire why their bin was not picked up, the customer services team will have access to the data and can provide an explanation.

This approach encourages residents to engage with their councils, working together to solve issues, resulting in a closer and more engaged community.

What is route planning and why is it important?

Route planning is the process of calculating multiple paths a vehicle can travel using data of the area such as traffic, narrow roads or areas that require extra awareness like schools. Using this information, you can then set a route that is fuel efficient, quick and causes minimal disruption to local residents.
