Streamline the management of components, tools, materials, and documentation related to your rental products and services with it.hire&rental – integrated into your SAP system.

Equipment Rental Trending All Over the World

Equipment rental is a service provided by dealers and manufacturers that is becoming increasingly important in the value chain. In addition to the usual rental products such as construction machinery, containers, and transportation equipment, all types of tools and technical equipment are rented out.

Rental Products and Services as New Business Opportunities

Conventional traders in particular have identified rental as a new business opportunity and are providing this additional service for industrial business partners, tradesmen, and consumers. What has been missing until now was a solution based on SAP that enables companies with rental services to manage and control rental processes more efficiently. NTT DATA Business Solutions is closing this gap.

Just 20% Can Tip the Scales for Overall Efficiency

Even if approximately 80% of processes in retail and rental are similar and follow the same principles, it is the remaining 20% that determines the overall efficiency of a system – due to its inherent uniqueness.

Are You Facing These Challenges at Your Rental Business?

  • Are you struggling with controlling the sheer range of processes and functional tasks that need to be completed and tracked?
  • Is automated tracking and billing of your rental processes difficult, or even impossible, due to them being managed outside of your SAP system?
  • Do you lack transparency over your rental equipment at your business and throughout the whole equipment lifecycle?
  • Do you have problems with balancing your portfolio on site, in the field, and with your cash flow?
  • Is it difficult to maximize the use of your fleet as well as the re-sale value at the end of your equipment’s rental life?
  • Are you sometimes caught between either maintaining rental equipment or selling it to keep transaction costs as low as possible?
  • Can you guarantee 100% equipment availability paired with excellent services, so that your customers always get what they need, exactly when they need it?
  • Are you able to plan ahead when it comes to spare parts requirements and maintenance resource capacity in case of equipment failure?
