Sunbelt Rentals Selects RB Asset Solutions for Asset Management

Sunbelt Rentals, one of the largest rental equipment companies in North America, is partnering with RB Asset Solutions by Ritchie Bros. to manage its more than $10-billion fleet across its more than 900 rental locations.

Sunbelt Rentals’ officials say the RB Asset Solutions technology will help the company better manage, analyze, and redeploy its assets.

"We now have access to a suite of innovative tools to help us better manage the workflow of our assets, thanks to our long-time partnership with Ritchie Bros.," said Michael Guzman, Sunbelt Rentals fleet operations manager. "We have better visibility of our fleet, including items we are considering for disposition, which will be remarketed directly by Sunbelt or sold through one of Richie Bros.' channels. We are improving the efficiency of our disposition process as well as recovery on equipment sold. We also can quickly review, in real-time, assets that have transacted by branch to align with our fleet plan."

RB Asset Solutions brings together a customizable suite of tools and services, including a cloud-based inventory management system, inspection application, personalized webshops, data analytics, and valuation tools.

"Sunbelt was actually one of the first customers we worked with to build out the full suite of RB Asset Solutions," said Logan Mellott, sales director for Ritchie Bros. "Their profit center managers are quickly becoming super-users. We have built in hierarchy and workflows to their IMS so they have oversight of what's being added, inspected, and sold on a day-to-day basis, and it's all available via a single sign-on.”

RB Asset Solutions allows companies to move from managing their fleets on spreadsheets to a cloud-based, easy-to-use platform that is accessible via desktop and mobile devices."
