Trackunit, Point of Rental Partner to Empower Hire Customers

Trackunit and Point of Rental have announced a long-term partnership to empower businesses relying on equipment hire to get their jobs done more efficiently.

“We’re going beyond the health and location of the machine,” said Jeff Cohen, president of Trackunit. “By partnering with industry leader Point of Rental, who shares a similar macro vision and desire to raise industry standards, we can connect the ecosystem even further and automate much more than ever.”

Cohen continued, “The partnership enables better customer service, opens communication and allows for transparency across all stakeholders. This partnership makes a ton of sense.”

“Technology is changing the world,” said Point of Rental CEO Wayne Harris.  “The Internet Of Things has impacted many different industries – maybe none more than the equipment industry. We’re looking forward to taking IOT to the next level of innovation with Trackunit.” 

Via connected API, Point of Rental’s Expert and Elite products will pass data back and forth with the Trackunit Manager system and Trackunit Go application. The connection will make them the second and third Point of Rental products, following their UK-based Syrinx product, to integrate with Trackunit.

Point of Rental sees statuses of on- and off-rent equipment, when equipment is delivered, when it’s called off rent, and when it’s ready for delivery. That will pair with Trackunit’s ability to see that information in realtime and provide it to hire customers online during their contract period with a convenient customer portal.

Billing information will also be seamlessly integrated to improve invoicing accuracy and reduce manual entries.

All in all, the partnership will dramatically reduce equipment downtime, allow hire businesses to provide the best service possible, and empower customers to see exactly what they want from their hire supplier without interrupting front counter operations.
