To improve their SPCC compliance processes and paperwork, Recology’s South Group partnered with Mapistry to deploy a single, easy-to-use software solution to help them automate and centralize the way they manage and track their SPCC compliance lifecycle from start to finish.
Now, instead of grappling with paper forms and spreadsheets for routine inspections, corrective actions and tasks, Recology’s South Group can empower its team with an automated workflow to quickly and accurately perform these tasks with a few clicks. Staff can instantly capture inspections, take pictures, and assign corrective actions using any smartphone, tablet or computer.
This not only reduces the amount of time and effort spent on inspections, it also strengthens communication and collaboration across the team.
Recology also quickly realized that they could take advantage of Mapistry’s analytics dashboard to track the performance of inspection results and corrective actions in real-time across their South Bay facilities. This enables the team to easily visualize, analyze and assign accountability of compliance obligations. It also gives them the confidence of knowing that tasks are being completed according to quality standards — without requiring them to call or drive around to chase status updates from each of their facilities. They can also maximize site performance and resource utilization by identifying trends and proactively deploying solutions to promote improvement.
Another advantage of adopting Mapistry’s SPCC Suite was being able to digitize their regular SPCC planning and site map updates, which has helped them dramatically reduce the amount of time and effort spent on these activities. What would have taken them hours to create using more manual tools, now takes them minutes to update in a digital format. Plus, staff always has access to the most complete, accurate, and up-to-date versions of their compliance data and documents stored centrally in Mapistry’s records repository. Therefore, they don’t have to risk important compliance documents or data getting lost in the paper shuffle again.
Lastly, the Recology team has also benefited from having access to the support and regulatory expertise of Mapistry’s services team of environmental experts. Backed by additional technical support and regulatory knowledge of permit rules and limits, Recology can eliminate guesswork and build a stronger line of defense against regulator scrutiny.
Ultimately, having the combination of Mapistry’s software platform and regulatory expertise has equipped the Recology team with the tools they need to advance their environmental compliance programs and operations. As a result, they become even more efficient and effective. Also, they can now proactively monitor the health of their compliance program and limit risk.
