Imagine being stuck in the middle of a field with a burst water pipe. Or trying to stop your busy construction site from flooding after a heavy downpour of rain. These are just a couple of real-life scenarios that could crop up that require getting equipment ordered and in place fast.
The clock is ticking the moment the equipment request comes in. First, you have to ascertain what you need, find someone who has what you need, get it delivered or collected and get cracking on addressing the problem. This can take 2-4 hours on average — way too late in a lot of cases.
The right software can help your job site personnel request equipment faster than calling the office or numerous hire locations. Imagine a ‘request to supply’ easy button that you hit on your mobile device to request goods or services directly from your suppliers or internal stores departments. There is no need to go to your office to make the request, you can make the request right from the job site. Simply log in, request your hire, track its progress and get the job done.
When the job is complete, a simple ‘off hire’ request from the job site. This would save valuable time and money by not having equipment sit around not being utilized and risk getting damaged or lost.
