How to improve efficiency with the right crane rental solution

Construction software-1

When you are operating in the crane rental business, you know that transporting a large crane is not easy. To move and construct a tower crane or heavy-duty crane can take several days. Additionally, you need a lot of transport vehicles to get everything from point A to point B. The largest cranes can even take several hundreds of trucks to move them. They stay at their locations for quite a while, because such an enormous transport project is time-consuming and very costly.

To make these cranes cost-effective, you need to make sure that they have enough to do on location and are never at a standstill due to breakdowns. You want everything to run in the most optimal conditions, keep an eye on every process, and register everything that is done with the crane to keep a log for your company. For example, you might record the total number of tons that are lifted over a period of time. This will tell you when you need to do maintenance on certain parts or maybe even replace them. These are all things that need to be managed using the best software available on the market for the crane industry. Technologies like IoT in rental solutions can help. 

The crane rental company could benefit from IoT in the following ways:

  • Identify the conditions of the crane usage at the location 
  • Make proper arrangements for transport with proper route planning
  • Get data on the usage and bill extra if the usage exceeds the agreed terms
  • Be able to make arrangements for maintenance and service if required

To-Increase has years of experience in the crane rental business and loyal customers that have been working with DynaRent for many years. One of these customers is Sarens, one of the largest crane rental companies in the world. But we’ve recently attracted other crane rental companies like Ainscough, because our experience in this field is widely recognized.
