The Digital Transformation Barometer
A global survey
Waste management critical of digital transformation progress: 60% give themselves a failing grade for the application of new technologies.
The waste management and recycling industry is less than enthusiastic about its own success in making the digital transformation, according to AMCS’s Digital Transformation Barometer 2018. This is especially true for the application of new technologies, such as route optimisation, online customer portals and Business Intelligence. Most companies gave themselves a grade of ‘unsatisfactory’ in these areas. This is surprising given that 64% of those surveyed expect an increase in their IT budgets. In fact, 20% expected an increase of over 5%.
