Hilti goes the distance

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 5:09 pm

A next-generation Hilti ON!Track asset management solution has been launched which is designed to allow equipment to be tracked at a far greater distance than with the previous version.

Utilising Bluetooth-enabled ON!Track AI T380 smart tags, the system can locate tools at distances of up to 30m, states Hilti, enabling users to keep more accurate record of all assets, to check which ones are nearby and where they were last seen, and to monitor their usage.

The tags can be attached to any tool and surface, regardless of item, size and manufacturer, and have been tested to withstand corrosion, impact and exposure to chemicals. They communicate with Hilti’s cloud-based ON!Track asset management software that runs on a downloadable app across mobile hand-held devices.

Pramac gas range

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 10:40 am

MCS launches E-Sign

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 5:29 pm

MCS has launched ‘E-Sign’ functionality within its hire management system, MCS-rm. It is designed to enhance how companies do business with customers, improving process consistency by making it simple to sign quotes and contracts on any device.

E-Sign links directly to MCS-rm, automatically storing signed quotes and contracts, and letting managers see what has been signed, when and who authorised it. The company says that ensuring contracts are digitally signed ahead of delivery helps to eliminate mistakes and improve communication.

Chris Clarke, Development Manager for MCS says, “Hirers’ customers will no longer have to print, sign, scan and email their signed contract. All they need to do is open the contract and to sign it digitally by clicking the ‘accept’ button, whether they open it on a mobile or desktop PC. The hirer manages the process without using paper and the PDFs are completely tamper-proof.”

MCS, which will be exhibiting on Stand J44 at the Executive Hire Show on 6 and 7 February at the Ricoh Arena, is at www.mcs.co.uk
