Binwatch - Screenshots:

The following is a selection of screenshots from Binwatch.

The Front Page:

The front page of Binwatch lets you select a day (by clicking on the calendar) and shows you all the jobs for that day. From this screen you can allocate drivers, mark the jobs as done, enter despatch docket numbers (if you use them) etc. etc..

When you click on a job the job's extended information is shown to the right of the calendar.

The list of jobs can be sorted in a number of ways and you can easily make changes to any job by right clicking on the job to bring up a menu of options.

Order Entry:

The order entry page covers entry of all the details of an order such as the customer, the drop off and pick up date (subject to change later), the bin size and the price. It also allows you to enter items such as comments for the driver, comments for the office regarding this job, payment details and where the customer heard about your company.

The pick up date is calculated automatically from the drop off date according to a default hire period that you specify. Cash and account customers can have different default hire periods.

The price field will be automatically filled in based on the customer, price area and bin size (from price lists that you set up). This price can be overriden if needed.

Producing Run Sheets:

The runsheet screen lets you assign drivers to jobs and also re-order the jobs for each driver so that when you print the runsheets the jobs will be in the order that the driver should do them in.

To assign a driver you simply right-click on a job which will bring up the list of drivers that you have previously set up and you just pick the desired driver.

Clicking the 'Print Run Sheets' button will print the runsheets. Binwatch has a selection of runsheet layouts which you can use or you can have your own layout added to the system.

Run sheets can be printed as many times as necessary and jobs can be added to or removed from a driver's list at any time.

On-Site Bin List:

The list of on-site bins shows you all the the bins that are currently out on customer's sites. The list is initially sorted by drop off date so that you can easily see the bins that have been out the longest.
This list is maintained automatically by the system, as jobs are completed they are added to and taken off this list.


Invoices can be produced from Binwatch. They can cover a single delivery (as shown here) or can cover a whole month's deliveries depending on how you want the customer billed.
If the customer supplied their own reference number (or order number) then it would also appear on the invoice.

Sending Messages To Drivers:

This is a screenshot from a mobile phone that some job information has been sent to. Sending information to a driver's mobile phone can be completed in two mouse clicks in Binwatch.

This screenshot is from an iPhone and the layout may look different on different mobile phones but the information will be the same.

Text messages can also be sent to customer's mobile phones which might be used to tell them when their bin will be picked up.

The Map View:

To make allocation of jobs easier you can view the jobs for a day on a map. This lets you see where all the jobs are in relation to each other.

When you hover your mouse over a pin (the pins are colour coded to show the type of job - delivery, changeover or pick up) you will see more information about the job.

There are a number of ways to view the jobs on the map, for example you can view one driver's jobs and all the unassigned jobs at the same time which allows you to easily see which of the unassigned jobs are in the same area as the driver's current jobs to see if there are any suitable jobs to assign to the driver.

The map can be scrolled and zoomed in and out to allow you to concentrate on one area.

Customer's Sites:

Customers who have a number of sites can have those sites tracked individually. Each site can have it's own price list and contact details set up for it.

A customer with a number of sites can have invoices produced on a per site basis or all sites on one invoice whichever they prefer.

User Logins:

In multi-user environments Binwatch can track all changes made to a job and record the user who made the change and the time it was made.

Another option is to restrict certain users to only parts of the system ie only give call centre staff access to enter and amend orders but not change driver allocations or produce invoices.
