Swiss Waste Company Signs Technology Agreement

Helvetia Environnement will use Rubicon’s platform of both in-vehicle and fleet management dashboard technology to uncover cost savings.

Waste management company Helvetia Environnement has signed a subscription agreement to use Rubicon’s cloud-based waste, recycling and smart city solutions.

Helvetia Environnement provides waste collection, management and recycling services in Switzerland. As part of its circular economy mandate, the company also generates energy from waste.

Rubicon’s technology features a number of components that work together to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of municipal refuse collection services, while also gathering and analysing data to inform public policy development and government operations.

The new partnership will allow Helvetia Environnement to use Rubicon’s platform of both in-vehicle and fleet management dashboard technology to help uncover cost savings, divert waste and improve operations through data analytics.

The company said it is committed to providing sustainable solutions to its network of approximately 500 public sector and 15,000 private sector clients.

“Helvetia Environnement is committed to bringing innovative sustainability solutions and best-in-class technology to its growing customer base,” said Vincent Chapel, CEO at Helvetia Environnement. “We are excited to see Rubicon’s technology allow us to digitise our logistics and administrative processes for our key account customers.”

“Partnering with Helvetia through our SaaS solution will allow us to accompany Helvetia Environnement on [its] path to growth.”
