SmartEquip and Point-of-Rental Form Alliance | Construction News

SmartEquip and Point-of-Rental Software have formed a strategic partnership to integrate their software platforms.

The integration enables Point-of-Rental Software users to receive real-time, accurate parts and service support for more than 150 brands of equipment currently on the fast-growing SmartEquip Network, while automating electronic parts ordering from manufacturers and dealers.

The partnership is expected to help Point-of-Rental users significantly reduce equipment operating costs, while increasing fleet financial utilization and rental revenue.

Participating users will receive self-updating parts, service, and repair information dynamically customized down to the individual asset number for equipment in their fleets.

Integrating SmartEquip’s Network into Point-of-Rental Software lets purchase orders and work orders populate automatically and accurately. It will let rental company employees reduce their administrative effort, resulting in higher technician readiness, or a reclaiming of “wrench time.” Rental companies will also see immediate cost savings, thanks to significant decreases in maintenance, service, and repair time requirements. Also, higher levels of fleet readiness, or “uptime,” will likely increase rental revenues, according to Point-of-Rental.

“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,” notes Bryan Rich, SmartEquip’s chairman and CEO.  “Our companies share an unwavering commitment to creating operational efficiency, and the integration of our technologies will deliver enhanced profitability to each user.”

Greg Bennett, Point-of-Rental’s vice-president of sales said, “We are excited to be partnering with another innovative industry leader like SmartEquip. By combining their value proposition and our lean office application, rental companies stand to gain a significant edge in a competitive market. Through this partnership, we look forward to further enabling rental companies to operate more efficiently.”
