Nick Thomson, MCS Sales Director said; “Knowing what stock and parts are available has long been a challenge for rental companies, because once the parts have left the depot inventory, they were essentially marked as ‘used.’

“Having the new ability to keep track of van stock, as though the van itself is a depot, means rental companies can set minimum and maximum stock thresholds to ensure vans are always well stocked when they are on the road.”

The software identifies van stock shortages and automatically creates inter-depot transfers of necessary stock from the nearest depot to the van.

“With this visibility, rental companies can now ensure that they are not over-ordering or under-ordering parts and equipment, improving cash flow and increasing first-time fixes of engineers on the road.”

“It’s not just from a parts ordering point of view that this feature has an impressive impact,” said Thomson. “Whenever rental companies are planning their resources, vehicles with specific stock can now be selected, meaning the right driver and parts are sent to each job.”
