Heavy-duty rental software

Designed for your profitability—even through a pandemic.

The word “essential” really has taken on new meaning in 2020. But in the midst of uncertainty, our communities continue to grow and build—which means it’s essential that your heavy equipment rental company has the software needed to keep up with the demand.

Automate your inventory management

To focus on growing your business

The changes and uncertainty that have come from COVID-19 are shining a spotlight on inefficiencies across all industries. Is your current software working hard enough to grow and adapt with your changing business? We’ve helped construction equipment rental companies solve challenges that effect their bottom line, including: 

Automate cycle-billing

Get those long-term rentals invoiced and paid quicker than ever with Cycle Billing and Recurring Credit Card Billing.  Bill in advance or arrears, and for multiple cycles.

GPS track all assets

Integrate directly with your GPS application to know both where your equipment is and how much it’s been used. Bill for overages on each cycle bill rather than at the end of the rental.

Organize work orders for repair

Alert’s graphical Work Order Dashboard shows the status of your work orders at all times. Use Preventive Maintenance to keep your equipment in tip-top shape and ready to rent.

Do you have a 20% operating profit?

Use our business success formula to help build a plan that delivers a 20% pre-tax operating profit.
"For companies that derive 60-89% of their rental revenue from construction and industrial equipment rental, the top 25% made a 18.5% pre-tax operating profit. The average for all companies was only 11.6%."

How do we stack up?

The truth is, you’ve got a lot of rental software companies to choose from and they’re likely all promising the same kinds of features. But you don’t need a software provider—you need a software partner. So we’ve broken down exactly what we offer, along with our competitors.

An honest comparison of apples to apples.
