UK waste management and recycling software company deepens its relationship with SAP in the USA to digital transform global supply chains and drive the transition to a circular economy.
Brentford, west London, UK – 17 May 2023 – ISB Global, the UK-based provider of software and solutions for the global waste management and recycling sector, is deepening its partnership with German multinational enterprise resource planning software company SAP (ETR: SAP) as it looks to digitally transform waste management with a focus on recycling, sustainability and zero waste across global supply chains. ISB Global announced the closer partnership in a new blogpost.
ISB Global is already a certified SAP partner and global application development partner for Waste & Recycling One (WR1), ISB Global’s flagship integrated software platform. WR1 brings together specialist, integrated business processes in a single solution. It uses the same data for accuracy, compliance and reporting, allowing instant control and complete visibility across the business. This enables businesses to plan, track, capture and control their waste management and recycling operations more efficiently and effectively.
Similarly, SAP’s ERP solutions deliver control and visibility of key governance and compliance management processes for companies of all sizes – small, mid and large. Companies use SAP solutions to manage a broad range of complex business processes, including large-scale waste management and recycling.
Commenting on the news, ISB Global co-founder and CEO Chris Williams said, “If the world is going to achieve limiting global warming to 1.5°C before 2030, we must reduce greenhouse gas emissions from supply chains. An essential part of this process is to move away from our current linear economy, which is based on extraction, consumption and waste.
“We must instead embrace a system that redesigns, reuses, recycles and reprocesses materials already in circulation – what is known as the circular economy. One of the key ways to persuade companies and supply chains to make this move is to develop, provide and support the technology that makes it easy to do so.”
Williams continued, “ISB Global is in a unique position – no other waste management software developer has the partnerships, resources and support in place to work with global software technology vendors such as SAP. We’ve developed a range of solutions with SAP that deliver significant operational and cost benefits to end-user organisations. Smaller, single-point software providers and standalone companies simply don’t have the resources and level of support to do the same.”
Through its Vendor Relationship Management Programme (VRM), ISB Global develops partnerships, technologies, scale and presence to drive waste, recycling, environment, sustainability and circular economy solutions across every aspect of the supply chain technology eco system. ISB Global designed the programme with SAP and other software partners, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) and low-code enterprise application development platform OutSystems.
SAP and ISB Global have designed and engineered their solution suites to facilitate low code development. This enables organisation to quickly and easily create and add new features and expanded functionality to their SAP and ISB Global-based IT systems as soon as they’re ready.
ISB’s Waste & Recycling One (WR1) platform integrates with existing, upgraded and new SAP ERP solutions. It is also engineered and deployed on the OutSystems low code platform and hosted and integrated to Amazon Web Services. Multiple industry supply chains such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals, automotive, consumer products, fashion, mining and mill products – producers – and their waste can be managed far more effectively.
“Companies and industries must do their part alongside national governments to reduce waste and reduce emissions,” explained Williams. “ISB Global and SAP’s advanced technologies gives organisations the means and the know-how to implement waste management and recycling processes that are more effective and sustainable. They can radically improve their systems and infrastructure to eradicate waste, mitigate carbon impact and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
“We’ll continue to work closely with SAP to provide to waste and recycling providers and other innovative companies within the supply chain pioneering solutions that prioritise zero waste and sustainability, while also boosting productivity and efficiency.”
