Sunstate Equipment is the latest US rental company to join the SmartEquip network. The system will link each of Sunstate's depots with its suppliers, giving parts and service technicians real-time support on products.

The system will allow Sunstate to electronically source parts and other supplies directly from vendors.

Sunstate's founder and chairman, Mike Watts, said; "For some time, now, we have considered joining the SmartEquip Network in order to drive both operational and transactional efficiencies throughout our organization.

"In recent months, we worked closely with SmartEquip to tailor this solution to our specific needs. Together we have defined a go-forward strategy which leaves us confident that we will jointly create efficiencies, for not just us, but also our suppliers, and which will also help us better serve our customers."

SmartEquip's chief executive officer, Alex Schuessler, said; "Sunstate Equipment carries a reputation for customer service and efficiency that is well known in the industry, and we are very proud to have been chosen by this important Network partner".

Sunstate Equipment , founded in 1977 in Arizona by Mr Watts, operates in nine states with 55 branches.
