Plant Hire Equipment GPS Tracking And Monitoring

When it comes to our business, we offer our customers a powerful resource and a recipe for success. Listed below is a comprehensive list of services we offer our clients that have expensive plant hire equipment.

It is an essential requirement for plant hire/leasing companies to constantly check the ongoing environment and status of fixed use or drivable plant equipments to ensure all products are utilized correctly and safely by their customers to keep the equipment in the best possible condition and in a controlled procedure where this expensive equipment does not get stolen, miss-used or damaged.

Managing your plant equipment just got easier

Anyone managing a Hire Desk will be aware of the limitations that manual processes bring: written requisitions are open to errors, misplacement or misinterpretation resulting in part or even non-shipment. Managing inspection, maintenance schedules and storing and retrieving documentation can also be a real headache meaning faulty or the wrong type of equipment is still being hired out.

In addition, there is no accurate way of knowing exactly what equipment is in which location.

A difficult financial climate combined with ever more demanding regulatory requirements means that Plant Hire companies need to have real-time visibility of their assets and answers to these key questions:

  • Where is my Plant equipment right now and who is it on-hire to.?
  • What is the current running time.? , Does it need Maintenance.?
  • Is my equipment safe and up-to-date with the correct inspections.?
  • How can I maximize my on-hire rates and get Plant to site quicker and get it returned to me quicker for re-hire.?
Work smarter, not harder
