Adopting GPS technology is essential to compete with the largest rental shops

Consolidation in the rental industry is increasing at an unprecedented rate. The largest rental shops are growing rapidly and have the scale, capital, and resources to provide a first-class experience to their customers. For smaller rental shops to compete, it’s essential to incorporate GPS tracking into their fleet. This enables smaller shops to do more with less, operate more efficiently, reduce costs, and deliver the best possible experience to their customers.

Prolong the life of rental equipment and reduce machine failure

Machine downtime can halt work for your customers for hours or even days. To prevent this, use real-time data to proactively perform maintenance on your equipment before issues arise. By analyzing usage data, you also can avoid scenarios where machine gauges stop functioning. You can easily coordinate with customers and mechanics and use the Hapn app to navigate them to the right machinery. Always maintain your expensive rental assets when needed to make the most of them.

We tried other solutions to track our attachments, but the trackers either weren’t tough enough or relied on Bluetooth. With Hapn’s trackers, we can quickly see the exact location of our items on the lot or on the site, and easily manage our inventory and coordinate our pickups & drop offs.

Safeguard your rental equipment from theft and misuse while improving recovery rates

Approximately $1 billion worth of construction equipment is stolen every year, and less than 25% is ever recovered. Equipment theft not only results in lost revenue and replacement costs but also in increased insurance premiums. Deploying GPS trackers on equipment allows you to receive alerts right away when theft or misuse occurs. You can share real-time location data with authorities to aid in recovery. Using secondary trackers can ensure recovery even if the primary tracker is found.
