The following is a blog from 2019 Point of Rental International Conference sponsor SmartEquip, whose parts procurement and equipment lifecycle management integration enables Point of Rental Software users to receive real-time, accurate parts and service support for more than 400 brands of equipment, while automating electronic parts ordering from both manufacturers and their dealers.
One of the most prominent trends in the equipment rental industry is the significant need to reduce equipment operating costs, while increasing revenue. The SmartEquip and Point of Rental Software integration solves this by allowing users to receive real-time, accurate parts and service support for more than 400 brands of equipment currently on the fast-growing SmartEquip Network.
“We are delighted to extend and connect our network directly into the workflow of participating Point of Rental users, and we take pride in aligning ourselves with the company’s progressive management team,” said Bryan Rich, SmartEquip Chairman and CEO. “Our companies share an unwavering commitment to creating operational efficiency, and the integration of our technologies will deliver enhanced profitability to each user.”
Participating users receive self-updating parts, service and repair information dynamically customized down to the individual asset number for equipment in their fleets. In turn, electronic parts orders become an automated experience for both manufacturers and their dealers. This streamlined workflow allows for purchase orders and work orders to automatically and accurately populate. The overall effect? Users see immediate cost savings because of a significant decrease in maintenance, service, and repair time requirements, as well as a reduction in their administrative effort, resulting in higher technician readiness.
