US software houses announce strategic partnership
By Steve Ducker27 April 2015
SmartEquip and Point-of-Rental Software have announced a strategic partnership to integrate their respective software platforms.
This integration enables Point-of-Rental users to receive real time, accurate parts and service support for more than 150 brands of equipment currently on the SmartEquip network, while automating electronic parts ordering from both manufacturers and their dealers.
The partnership is expected to give users a significant reduction in equipment operating costs, while increasing fleet financial utilisation and rental revenue.
Participating users will receive self-updating parts, service and repair information dynamically customised down to the individual asset number for equipment in their fleets.
With SmartEquip’s network integrated into the powerful and robust software, purchase orders and work orders are automatically and accurately populated.
Rental company employees will see a reduction in their administrative effort, resulting in higher technician readiness, or a reclaiming of “wrench time”.
Rental companies will also see immediate cost savings due to significant decreases in maintenance, service and repair time requirements.
“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’s chairman and CEO.
