August 2, 2019 – merQbiz, a solutions and analytics provider for buyers and sellers in the recovered paper (RCP) industry, has introduced BaleVision, a quality assessment tool to provide companies actionable insights into their RCP quality.

Conventional measurement methodologies – such as ocular inspections and bale breaking – can be labour-intensive and highly subjective. Furthermore, any data collected is often unreliable and provides very little information for business decision-making and process optimization.

The quality assessment tool analyzes the bale from the inside out, collecting detailed data on fibre content, moisture, plastic, ash and other bale contaminants. merQbiz has partnered with the manufacturer PTS to be the exclusive distributor of the device in North America.

BaleVision significantly increases the volume of bales that can be inspected and delivers data analytics that provide information transparency via dashboards. Combining the customer’s data with market and seasonal data, the system supplies trend analyses for quality, operations, procurement and finance.

merQbiz will tailor the solution to each customer’s requirements, and it can be integrated with existing enterprise technology platforms or function as a stand-alone system.

To complement BaleVision, merQbiz is launching a new analytics platform that will house the dashboards and related services such as claims management and an RCP export procurement solution.
