Running from the 6th to the 9th of June, Plantworx recently made its long-awaited return to Leicestershire and we had a great time. The initial rain on the first day didn’t put people off as everyone had their wellies at the ready to tackle the mud. However, much to everyone’s delight, the rain soon subsided and the sunshine appeared. From there on out, Plantworx was a sunny yet very muddy event for the UK Construction, Plant and Tool industry.
With a prime position next to the entrance, we greeted visitors with our powerful hire management software as well as new products and innovative features that could help them better utilise and administer their equipment. We were eager to catch up with many of our customers to ensure they were getting the most out of their system so we stopped by to see, Garic, Morris Leslie, Power Electrics, ADP, Dymatec, Emmitt Plant, Locksheath, Meade Construction and Willbox just to name a few.
Morris Leslie were excited to hear how they could automate reports to go out on a weekly basis, reducing admin and allowing them to focus their attention on more important tasks.
Integrating your logistics management software with a mobile app can be extremely beneficial to a hire businesses. Therefore, over the course of the show, visitors were extremely interested to find out how inspHire mobile seamlessly works with existing logistics planning & project management functionality. This means that both hire desk staff and mobile workforce can stay in sync at all times, making communication faster and more coherent.
This new unified functionality lets customers oversee the deliveries, collections & exchanges of their equipment and easily allocate tasks to drivers or engineer’s schedules when they’re out on the move. Furthermore, inspHire’s push messaging and live updates feature relays back real-time information to hand held devices, ensuring that no job goes unseen.
With over 385 exhibitors, there was a great deal of brilliant innovation on display. One of which was the virtual reality seminar held by the HAE EHA. By wearing the Virtual reality gear, users were given health and safety training in a virtual world. It’s great to see exciting new education tools being introduced to create a safer working environment and we look forward to seeing more of this in the near future.
Thank you to all who came to visit us on our stand. We’d also like to say another big thanks to the team at Plantworx for hosting yet another terrific event. We had a great time and can’t wait to exhibit again in 2019!
