Cranes

Can your company forecast, monitor, and respond quickly during crane rental lifecycles?

Crane Rental Software

Mobile crane companies need to nurture extremely high-value equipment as much as they nurture customers. Within your own business, there’s a lot competing with your focus on customers. Rental scenarios can range from 1-hour jobs to projects with multi-phased equipment usage, service resources, and full-scale project management. You need top numbers for utilization, condition, compliance, transport and logistics, and service efficiency. Profits depend on your ability to handle all these challenges and keep customers top of mind.

HiGH Software has deep roots in the crane industry, and we see how important it is for crane rental software to go beyond full insight and planning for operations and financials, fully integrated with ERP. Crane rental projects today call for mobility that connects planners, crane operators, service techs, and project managers. Companies want the choice to incorporate the Internet of Things as a monitoring and planning tool—for example, to streamline predictive maintenance and be instantly informed about weather conditions that impact usage. They also need the ability to interface with third parties for effective collaboration and compliance. All these capabilities are relatively new. They need to be a well-designed part of a solution that already offers top-notch management for equipment, resources, transport, maintenance, budgets, documents, and more.

Our DynaRent solutions suite is built to move with these challenges and your choices. From the start, you’ll have graphical dashboards for a complete view that’s can be as granular or high-level as you want, fully integrated with your business system data. End-to-end information gets captured once and is automatically organized and filtered so that it’s relevant to all departments and any third party with access. Interactive planning and 24/7 monitoring fosters smart organization and quick intervention for transport, budget, and resource management. Mobile solutions span operations, field service, and IoT data collection. You’ll also benefit from automated, flexible project creation, commercial/non-commercial hour registration and combined rental for cranes and other equipment. ready.

Our approach eliminates the need for multiple implementations and overlapping functionality, saving time and money. At the same time, we combine the simplicity of standardization and the ability to quickly meet changing business and industry needs.
