Rubicon, a software platform that provides smart waste and recycling solutions for businesses and governments worldwide, announced today that the company’s smart city technology suite, RUBICONSmartCity, is now available to purchase through the Sourcewell Cooperative Purchasing Program.
“Sourcewell is the leading cooperative purchasing organization in the United States,” said Conor Riffle, Vice President of Smart Cities at Rubicon.
RUBICONSmartCity is a technology platform that helps city governments run faster, smarter, and more effective waste, recycling, and heavy-duty municipal fleet operations.
“We are pleased to now offer Rubicon’s smart city technology platform through the Sourcewell cooperative purchasing program,” said Nick Trout, Supplier Development Administrator at Sourcewell.
In the City of Kansas City, Missouri, the implementation of RUBICONSmartCity in the City’s fleet of 80 sanitation vehicles that service approximately 160,000 locations delivered over two million dollars cost savings and a 17 percent increase in citizen satisfaction with solid waste collection.
In the City of Spokane, Washington, Rubicon’s smart city technology saved the City an estimated $25,000 in annual printing costs and helped to bring in approximately two million dollars in revenue each year from extra set outs.
In the City of Montgomery, Alabama, Rubicon’s software helped drivers document over 57,000 issues along their routes during the pilot period alone-and Rubicon’s data showed that if the City were to reduce its routes by just five, taxpayer savings could total approximately $375,000 per year.
