Australian rental firm Kennards is now using QR technology for its equipment fleet

Australian rental firm Kennards Hire has introduced QR (quick response) code technology to its various business units, including Lift and Shift, Pump and Power, Traffic, Concrete Care and Rail.

The QR codes provide customers, including operators, foremen and safety inspectors, with easy access to service and maintenance history for each piece of equipment on rent.

In addition, test and examination certification, maintenance schedules and user manuals can also be accessed with the quick scan of a smart phone.

Customers only need to download a QR code reader to their smart phone, scan the code on the ‘ready to hire’ label, and then browse the plant portal.

Alternatively, customers can enter the plant number via the Kennards Hire Plant Portal Site to access the information.
