Rental Software provider MCS, develops multiple new technologies to help hire companies improve sustainability. As demand for more sustainable ways of working increases, the company has innovated its solutions to help hirers reduce carbon emissions, go paperles and increase utilisation.

With the latest version of MCS' Transport Mobile app, rental businesses can schedule and optimise driver routes, helping them to reduce emissions, be more reactive and as efficient as possible. Drivers can also be viewed on a map using advanced telematics data, so that adhoc jobs can be allocated and new schedules can be made with ease, updating the route instantly on the drivers’ mobile app.

MCS Sales Director Nick Thomson explains further: “The Transport Mobile and Resource Planner tools work together to create the perfect synergy between staff in the back office and the team on the road. Creating the most efficient route helps save fuel consumption and reduce CO2 emissions. The ability to change routes on the fly gives rental companies the power to do more business without adding extra journeys or forcing drivers to go back on themselves. Drivers and mobile engineers can also capture electronic proof of delivery, signatures and even photographic evidence, reducing paper and improving cash flow.”

The latest revamp to the MCS Online Shop has enabled rental companies to use its functionality on the web, meaning hirers can make bookings online, view their pricing and check equipment availability - all from a mobile device. Chris Clarke, Development Manager at MCS, continues: “Making our Online Shop available on the web and on mobile has transformed the way our customers can do business. It has helped them improve customer service whilst also ensuring hirers are selecting the right assets for rent, saving on wasted deliveries fulfilling incorrect orders. The new responsive solution shows customers what equipment is available, user guides and specifications, as well as up-to-date pricing, helping to reduce time spent by the hire team on manual data entry, updates and reliance on telephone orders.”
