Capitol Environmental Waste Management Solution: GroveWare Technologies' MobiTask™ is Implemented by Capitol Environmental Inc., a Leading Waste Management Services Company in USA

TORONTO, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GroveWare Technologies Ltd. (OTCBB: GROV) Capitol Environmental provides a variety of waste management services from facilities management to transportation and logistics. A majority of the services provided by Capitol Environmental are off-site and require communicating the daily work completed to ensure all work has been completed properly back to the office. To provide this communication, they have implemented MobiTask, an app developed by GroveWare Technologies Ltd. (OTCBB: GROV).

Capitol Environmental was in discussions with its Data Solutions Architect at Verizon Wireless about a specific loss prevention solution in the total waste/materials management services at the truck loading and transfers sites. The process of loading subcontracted trucks with waste onsite must be accurately documented to ensure all waste that leaves the site arrives at the transfer site with the same amount. Each truck that is brought on site needs to be documented with the specific arrival and departure time, as well as load quantity. This information needs to be communicated to the transfer sites for them to have the data to compare with their incoming load details. Verizon brought GroveWare into the discussion to see how the MobiTask solution could help solve the problem on hand.

GroveWare assessed the business process and needs of Capitol and provided them with a demo app to take into the field with a tablet provided by Verizon. Capitol decided to start a pilot project at one site before the 2 week demo had ended. The goal of the project was to mobilize the Daily Load Summary Report, which documents details of each truck that comes on site including the truck number, the load weight, arrival time, departure time and a picture of the truck's load. At the end of the day, the form is submitted and an Excel file is generated and automatically sent to the site manager who can track what left the site vs. what arrived to the transfer site. GroveWare turned the project around within a week by building the forms, print templates, notifications and documentation and the project has since been running on its own for six months.

The project has allowed Capitol to properly manage work that is being completed onsite and create a compliance method for the work that is being transferred offsite. The project has been so successful that Capitol Environmental wants to implement the on all sites. This could provide a considerable source of revenue for GroveWare as their licensing agreement is based on per user and billed monthly, quarterly or annually. This client could help GroveWare exceed their 2013 revenue expectations of $4 million. With the way the licensing agreement works, it also provides Capitol with an app that is always up to date and additional apps can be added and automated within their private cloud without adding to their per user cost.
