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

Outriggerpads launches Hinowa options

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 8:24 am

Outriggerpads is expanding its range of spreader plates for powered access and mobile plant equipment with a ‘shoe pad’ for Hinowa Lightlift tracked booms.

The pad fits snugly around the circular foot plate of each outrigger leg. Once fitted, they remain in situ, so do not need to be placed down and picked back up after each job, says the manufacturer. Attaching the pads to the feet in this way also minimises the risk of theft, or loss.

The product is made from heavy duty polyethylene that retains its shape under extreme vertical pressure. For more details visit www.outriggerpads.co.uk

Jaama drives forward

Filed under: Whats New — EHN Team @ 11:00 am

Jaama has introduced new functionality to its Key2 vehicle management system to enables users to utilise the data available following introduction of the vehicle emissions and MPG (miles per gallon) protocol, the worldwide harmonised light vehicles test procedure (WLTP).

Claimed to be more representative of ‘real-world’ driving, WLTP has been described as the world’s toughest emissions standard, the software developer states.

WLTP test results have been applied to all new car and lighter van models since September last year. From September 1, 2018 all cars and lighter vans (Class I up to 1305kg) must be tested under WLTP rules, along with new types of heavier vans (N1 Class II 1305-1760kg and III above 1760kg). From September 1, 2019 the rules apply to all heavier vans.

Jaama has added new functionality to its Key2 suite to manage this information, which takes vehicle data feeds from automotive industry providers, to give a greater insight into vehicle performance for fleet decision-makers.

MD Martin Evans said, “Introduction of the WLTP testing regime is one of the most significant developments to impact on the UK company car and van market since the turn of the century.” For more information, visit www.jaama.com

The Vanguard 200 can run for up to 200 hours between oil changes and a cyclonic air filtration system, fitted as standard, extends the recommended filter replacement intervals to 600 hours. For more details visit www.vanguardengines.com/hire
