Rental Software Supplier, MCS, develops new functionality enabling hirers to take site photographs and GPS details to help locate equipment on site quickly and easily.
The new functionality from MCS means that when it comes to servicing or collection, drivers or engineers will know precisely where on-site the hire assets were stationed upon delivery. Nick Thomson, MCS Sales Director, explains: “The ability for hirers to now store site photographs and GPS location details has been especially significant for industries such as generator hire, portable sanitation, and cabin rental. With equipment commonly located on large construction or event sites, it can be incredibly time-consuming to complete jobs without knowing exactly where the item is.”
Even before delivery, rental companies can now also record GPS details of where equipment needs to be delivered on-site, helping to make delivery drop-offs simpler and more efficient than ever. Once delivered, drivers can obtain delivery signatures, complete delivery checklists, and take GPS-enabled site photographs, all instantly available in the central MCS rental management solution. Nick continues: “This step towards better visibility of equipment location has been yet another great addition to the MCS Transport Mobile functionality. Empowered with more information about each rental contract, our clients can provide even better customer service and have an improved overview of all of their equipment assets.”
