Plant and Equipment Hire

Maximise your bottom line by monitoring your leased equipment

For any company leasing machinery out to other businesses, monitoring the treatment of this equipment is a challenge. In many situations these assets operate in harsh conditions and remote locations, which can lead to deterioration. Teletrac Navman’s GPS fleet management solutions can help you effectively manage leased equipment to ensure maintenance issues are kept to a minimum.

Monitor your assets

Plant and equipment hire companies need to know where their assets are and how they're being used at any given time. A static asset such as a generator might be hired on the condition that it will be used 10 hours per day. If the contractor runs the asset for longer than agreed, the asset will require maintenance sooner than anticipated and the contractor may incur additional costs for fuel or wear and tear, and the asset could become unavailable for the next contractor. DIRECTOR enables companies to monitor their equipment 24/7 even when in remote areas or under harsh conditions. With this knowledge at their fingertips, businesses can ensure their customers are invoiced accurately for their asset usage, whilst also keeping the asset healthy with up to date maintenance schedules, eliminating unnecessary down time and extending the assets life. 

Preventative Maintenance

Drivers and operators can often ignore asset warning lights alerting them to possible faults, especially if they are behind schedule on a project already. When the asset eventually stops functioning, the driver or operator will request a replacement which results in downtime until the asset is fixed or replaced. This involves costs for transporting a replacement asset or arranging a mechanic to attend to repair or collect the non-working asset.

Utilising DIRECTOR’s feature set will provide the ability to set up maintenance alerts to allow operators to easily plan ahead, resulting in asset maintenance being completed before the job is started or the providers asset is leased out, keeping projects with tight deadlines on schedule.

Fleet analytics

Analytical fleet data captured by Teletrac Navman’s DIRECTOR solution can allow the asset owner to break down the use and performance of each asset and driver individually or at fleet level, providing plant and equipment companies with an insight as to when, why and how each asset is used. By educating their contractors on how to efficiently use their equipment, this ensures the assets are being used effectively at all times, preventing unnecessary idle time and project delays which is beneficial to both the contractor, and equipment provider.
