HMS provides a real time view of the status, location and servicing details for each item of equipment
in a company’s rental inventory. Through it customer specific information can be input, such as the designation of assets to specific engineers, sites, or subcontractors. It allows rental costs to be allocated to different contracts, etc, for better scrutiny of budgets.
Users can view the calibration certificates for each item on-line, as well as having the ability to extend the
rental period or arrange collection of equipment. They are alerted whenever an item of equipment is approaching the end of its rental term. Users can also see early indications, via a simple-to-follow traffic light system (green, amber, red), of when equipment will be requiring its next recalibration.
The way in which data is viewed can be customised to suit a user’s particular preferences. Information can be
easily manipulated, with various sorting and field filter options supported. Analysis can be carried out to check if equipment utilisation is well aligned with the current rental agreement, or whether capacity needs to be scaled up/down.
As Kathryn Williams, Customer Service Manager at Livingston, explains “Our HMS tool presents a far more sophisticated, interactive approach to the sourcing and ongoing management of test hardware. It means that customers who are renting items of equipment from us now have full visibility of how their test activities are being executed and whether their available resources are being fully optimised so that running costs are kept to a minimum.”
