Platform can help construction companies track equipment inventory more accurately and cost-effectively than traditional means.
Spreadsheets and whiteboards are tools many construction companies have traditionally used to manage their inventory of rented and owned equipment. Needless to say, inefficiency is often the result, and the consequences can be significant. One of the most frustrating is duplicate rentals – renting a piece of machinery you already have in your inventory.
YARDZ is a software platform for tracking rental and owned equipment that is designed to help solve the problems associated with manual processes. Using the platform, companies can gain a better understanding of what they have in their inventory, reducing duplicate rentals and keeping close track of all equipment contracts and their provisions.
YARDZ provides benefits for users of both rented and owned equipment. On the rental side, it allows contractors to:
- see all their assets in the field in one place
- the location of each piece of machinery
- payment terms
- and the date each item is due back at the supplier
As a result, users can ensure that available equipment is sent to the jobs where it’s needed most. The system also offers one-click call-offs, as well as alerts and inventory summaries.
For owned equipment, YARDZ provides the same level of management functionality but includes additional features such as the ability to track and schedule equipment maintenance, as well as keep an eye on warranty information.
“There is literally no parameter that YARDZ does not keep track of both on the rented and owned equipment side,” Jason Perez, YARDZ CEO, asserted. “The beauty is that our customers are constantly finding new ways to use it – ways we hadn’t even thought of. The product’s benefits are constantly evolving.”
Four different versions of the software are available: Pro, Corporate, Enterprise and Enterprise Plus. Flexible pricing and multiple product versions make YARDZ applicable for companies of various sizes.
“Our goal was to give construction renters and asset managers their time back and technology that not only benefited their workday but saved money for their businesses and looked out for their bottom line,” Perez commented. “We wanted to help move industry professionals away from whiteboards and spreadsheets and ‘into the future.’”
