Equipment rental business spans from shop floor tools, machinery, cranes, lifts to heavy construction equipment, vehicles, testing meters etc. Companies were utilizing specific rental management software to manage rentals, financials, service automation, CRM and reporting functionality. These solutions were only able to automate and address individual verticals like rentals, maintenance or distribution. This has forced organizations to implement these narrowly focused solutions and integrate with multiple systems to optimize business operations.
Coast Crane is one such company involved in equipment rental business from the 70s. Its operations include rental, service and sale of equipment and spare parts. The fleet includes rough terrain cranes, boom trucks, tower cranes, and other lifting equipment. Products are rented or sold through a regional network including 13 branch locations and covering over 3,000 customer accounts.
