Question: What do you consider to be your top three major competitive advantages?
Answer: Service after the sale, support, and a huge design advantage
Question: Who do you consider to be your top three competitors and why?
Answer: When looking at competition and qualifying them for our competitor upgrade package. We look at several factors. How many employees do they have to take care of you after the sale, what software features do they offer and what hardware features do they offer. When examining competitors this way the field thins very quickly as most companies are comprised of just the owner or maybe the owner and one or max two others and the same is true about feature sets & hardware integrations. The three companies that we compete with regularly and that offer almost as many feature sets as ScrapRight and have almost as many tech support and development staff are 21st Century ROM, Tranact Scrap Dragon & Shared Logic.
Question: What are the major factors that I should be looking for a software company for my scrap recycling yard?
Answer: Referenced a lot in the first question. How will they take care of you after the sale? Do they have support staff to cover? On the phone or chat with another country only? Do they include troubleshooting hardware or is that charged for on every call? Most of them will answer “we just don’t have any problems” and believe me when I tell you, that is not the experience that many many of them have when they first select the low cost provider and then switch to us later!
Question: How important is it for my guaranteed compliance to be in writing?
Answer: One of the biggest reasons scrap yards purchase software is to keep them in compliance. So it is very important that if a new law or requirement is issued in your area, that your software company will have your back. Getting it in writing protects you and ensures that you will always be in compliance.
Question: Do you offer compliance beyond the state level down to County and local?
Answer: If you can provide us with documentation describing your state, county, city, or local law, we will include it in our software offering.
Question: I’m looking for a software company doesn’t try to tell me how to do business what can you say that?
Answer: Some of our competitors will lock you into a specific process and way of doing things. ScrapRight is dedicated to working for you and is flexible enough to not force you into changing your process
Question: I buy autos do you offer anything special when it comes to that?
Answer: We have several fatures when it comes to buying scrap automobiles including a VIN barcode reader on our app that will decode the vehicle's VIN, a scrap auto quoter, a stock inquiry screen, and several ways to report your autos to NMVTIS and other reporting agencies. Inquire for details!
