Rental Software Supplier, MCS, develops new functionality enabling hirers to manage third party transport deliveries and collections via a mobile app.
The new functionality from MCS gives rental companies better visibility of when, where, and how assets have been delivered without relying on returned paperwork from the third party haulage transporter weeks later. Nick Thomson, Sales Director at MCS, continues:
“Historically, a barrier for rental companies delivering a smooth rental process is the lack of visibility once the equipment has been handed over to third party haulage providers. With the new mobile app, third-party drivers can now deliver and collect equipment whilst entirely removing paper from the process.”
Third-party drivers are now alerted by email when a new job has been allocated to them, and they can then log into the MCS portal to assign a specific driver. At delivery, drivers can now take site photographs, add delivery notes, and time-stamped signatures, all instantly stored in MCS-rm with PODs automatically generated. Nick continues:
“Rental companies now have a much greater level of control over the entire rental process with the ability to see where and when equipment has been delivered, along with all documentation instantly available in their hire management system. We have had a great response to this latest feature in MCS-rm, with many of our clients calling this a real game-changer in the way they’re able to do business.”
