Successful Asset Management Begins With a Successful System
For years SCHAEFER has been recognized for turnkey solutions and the industry’s most durable waste carts. WISTAR combines that manufacturing strength with RFID technology that enables you to monitor your assets.

- Immediate ability to track carts in real-time
- Thorough testing that assures unmatched quality
Technology That Puts Data at Your Fingertips
Once your assembly and distribution crew scans a cart’s RFID tag with a WISTAR® mobile hand-held unit, you instantly capture data that make deployment more efficient.
- Visible delivery verification on a user-friendly WISTAR® asset management dashboard
- GPS coordinates stored for highly accurate inventory data
- Ability to interact and audit assets in real-time through full web and mobile access
- Higher revenue due to fewer missing or damaged carts, under or over-served accounts, and excess purchasing
If You’re Losing Carts, You’re Losing Money
Industry estimates indicate that most waste systems lose 2% of their cart inventory each year. WISTAR® helps you retain those assets as well as your revenue.
- Real-time cart data including locations, losses, recoveries, repairs, etc.
- Lower capital expenditures and greater inventory efficiency
- Detailed reports listing residences served, costs per container, maintenance requests, deployment efficiency, etc.
