inspHire provides all the functionality that we need and after three years of use, there are still elements we could use to improve our business. We now have more professional customer reports, better item tracking and more accurate invoicing. Our customers find our invoices easier to understand and they have benefitted from the ease that we can now access the information that they require on a regular basis like location information from the 'What’s Out Where' report. Having talked to other inspHire customers, before investing in the system, I was confident that I had made the right decision. Back up support was important to us as we had no time to waste implementing a new system that was not tried and tested in the market. Without inspHire we would not be able to operate at the capacity we do now and we couldn't have opened our London location this year.

The Issue

ide Systems Ltd was using an Excel Spread sheet to keep track of its rental equipment and was completely reliant on people regularly up-dating it. As the company grew and the number of contracts being raised was forever increasing, invoicing in Excel became too time consuming and laborious and the month end was taking two days to complete. In addition stock levels were also increasing, and ide needed to be able to properly categorise and depreciate them.

It became apparent that a hire management package was desperately required.
