How to increase rental safety with your ERP solution

Equipment Rental Industry

There are many benefits that may not immediately spring to mind when you think of an ERP solution. ERP solutions are becoming smarter, faster, and more intuitive. Because of machine learning and artificial intelligence, your ERP solution will be able to adapt more quickly and respond in ways that are tailored to your company. You can use your ERP solution to increase your rental safety.

"You can increase rental safety when you connect all the information of your employees in one system"

Imagine having all the information from all your employees connected through your ERP system. How does that improve security? Often, when a company becomes the victim of hackers, terrorists, or other criminals,  somebody inside the company is helping them. When you connect your employees’ data through the ERP system it is easier for different departments to keep an eye out for red flags. This prevents employees from stealing data or making the network vulnerable to criminal activity.

Your system can warn you when insurance expires

Of course, you already have an employee tracking insurance policies, making sure no work is done without being insured. But mistakes happen more than you realize and can be a major risk for your company. Your ERP system can warn not only the person responsible, but also other departments. This way, you reduce the risk that an insurance policy is not renewed in time.

Your system keeps track of maintenance

How great would it be to have a system that tracks your fleet and warns you whenever your equipment needs maintenance? Or makes sure crucial equipment is ready before the old equipment has broken down? Is this a thing of the future? No, this already possible with the right ERP system. This allows you to reduce downtime and increase profits.

You can add drones to the system to access places too dangerous for people

There are many situations in which it is dangerous for people to check on equipment. This can be due to dangerous temperatures, fumes, radiation, heights, depths—you name it. Drones can take over regular checkups as well as part of the maintenance. Not only are drones getting smarter and more specialized, they are also becoming smaller and stronger. This makes it possible for them to lift certain equipment or fit into cramped spaces.
