Rental software solutions provider, MCS, is set to demonstrate its newest features for resource planning and workshop engineers at the HRIA Show 2020. Its new resource planning features include map views of allocated and unallocated jobs, telematics integrations and real-time job progress reporting. Alongside this, the Workshop Mobile app enables workers on the move to see their planned routes and access the information they need on the road.
The MCS Resource Planner has become an integral part of its mobile apps connecting all of a rental company’s engineers to the Depot Manager to bring the whole rental process together. Workshop Engineers can see planned routes and any changes or additions to their schedules throughout the day. MCS Workshop Mobile also gives its users the power to send information back to the main operational system to update job progress and speed up the process of invoicing for completed work.
Clint Hook, Managing Director at MCS ANZ, continues,
“The MCS Resource Planner has brought with it a vast array of benefits, all helping to significantly reduce the time rental companies need to spend on managing their resources. One of this biggest benefits is that it maps out the most efficient route for drivers and engineers each day. This gives a greater degree of visibility of the drivers, meaning last-minute schedules and route changes can be made as required. This increase in visibility also helps to improve customer service, as it has put an end to the uncertainty as to when drivers will turn up as customers can be provided with an accurate arrival time, meaning they can get on and do other jobs instead.”
MCS customer, Challenger Site Services has been using the new Resource Planner solution for serveral months and continues to see great benefits to its business. Rob Allen, Systems Manager at Challenger Site Services explains,
“Now we have gone digital using the MCS Resource Planning software, our route planning is much more efficient and accurate. We have shortened our daily transport planning time from one and a half hours to about five or ten minutes.”
The time savings that MCS Resource Planner is bringing its customers is only one of the benefits of the solution. MCS Rental Software will be showcasing its latest developments to its Resource Planner and Mobile Apps at HRIA 2020 in Adelaide on 27th-28th May on Stand 31.
