The IT-3000 is used in bulk waste collection to collect payments

The customer

A waste management company's duties are not confined to disposing of waste and cleaning the streets. In fact, in recent years, these companies have developed into modern service providers, whose range of services are customised to the particular requirements. Private company "Stadtreiniger Kassel", which evolved from the sanitation department in the city of Kassel in 1993, has successfully established itself in the region of Northern Hesse. More than 350 employees ensure that around 195,000 inhabitants and 6500 businesses and industrial companies in Kassel are all looked after, by offering a range of tasks, including waste disposal, winter services and the development of waste solutions.

The IT-3000 features impressively simple and ergonomic handling

The use

Stadtreiniger Kassel uses CASIO IT-3000 hand-held terminals with integrated receipt printers as a mobile cash register system to collect payments at the control points in their recycling centres and when out collecting bulk waste. When selecting the mobile data terminal, particular emphasis was placed upon simple operation and ergonomic handling and robust design. At the beginning of their shift at the recycling centres, employees log on to the system and can set to work immediately. When waste disposal or recycling materials are delivered, the employee can directly enter the amount and type of material while at the delivery vehicle using the IT-3000's keyboard. This innovative solution enables quick and simplified processing of payment transactions, including registration and the creation of receipts. At the end of the shift, the saved data relating to the daily takings and amounts is transferred from the CASIO hand-held terminal to a PC, where it is clearly displayed, evaluated and then sent to the management for further processing. Along with relieving staff of bothersome paperwork and routine processes, which were prone to errors, the quality of service for the citizens of Kassel has also been improved further.

Practical experiences

"My colleagues and I enjoy working with the high-tech IT-3000 mobile cash register from CASIO", explains Horst Reuter from the recycling centre. "All the functions we need can be accessed using two buttons. Billing customers is quicker and easier - everyone is happy."

IT-3000

The product IT-3000

The extremely sturdy and robust construction of the handheld IT-3000 terminal fulfils the technical requirements for a device used in the field - it can withstand a drop from a height of 1.2 meters, complies with the IP54 rating for dust and water-splash protection and can operate faultlessly in temperatures between -20°C and +50°C. The terminal weighs between 635 and 680 g and comes with a built-in printer and magnetic card reader with Microsoft®.NET technology®. The scratch-resistant LCD touch screen enables signatures to be written directly on to the screen and data to be entered at the touch of a finger. The device can be expanded and used in a WLAN or GPRS environment thanks to Bluetooth®, IrDA interfaces, a PC card and SD card slot.
