At MCS Rental Software, we’re always trying to find new ways to help our customers get their rental businesses moving in the right direction. That’s why we’ve introduced the new and improved MCS Resource Mobile app to make working on-site much easier than before.

Keep reading to learn more about the app and how it creates seamless experiences for rental businesses.

What is MCS Resource Mobile?

The app is designed for any mobile device and can be downloaded on the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. It’s a tool that helps improve visibility into your rental business’s resource movements during the day.

It’s perfectly suited for field engineers, rental asset delivery, and pick-up drivers to carry out their everyday tasks without hassle and without losing any time while they’re on the move. Users can easily navigate the user-friendly app and get real-time on-site updates, submit job progress reports, and capture critical information while they’re on the field.

Employees in the office can also track progress and get improved visibility of all the daily rental movements. The app can not only track the entire lifecycle of specific tasks from start to finish, but it can even monitor resource movements during the day, including driving times and location confirmation at delivery/pickup stops.

How does the app help the user?

In the rental industry, it’s important to keep track of everything, and for those who are in charge of delivery and pick-ups, having the MCS Resource Mobile app can help them manage routes, see their daily schedule, and complete tasks with the help of checklists, site photos, signatures, and more.

The features of the app are designed to support any part of the rental equipment movements, from delivering and collecting to repairing. It helps rental businesses work faster and smarter without a mountain of paperwork.

How can your rental business benefit from the new MCS Resource Mobile?

The new mobile app offers some useful benefits that can improve how your business functions.

Improved image storage

Earlier versions of the mobile app saved images on standard image folders. This meant that images related to deliveries and pick-ups appeared in their private user gallery. The new version stores these images in a secure hidden folder, preventing the user from accidentally deleting the images before they’ve been uploaded. You don’t need to worry about misplacing proof of delivery or any other documentation you need to complete the rental process.

More reliability with images embedded with GPS

Your delivery drivers can also take images where the GPS location is embedded into the photos being taken. The server can then extract the data and update the locations on the system. One of the key benefits of this feature is that you have automatic confirmation of where the images were taken which can save you a lot of time and hassle if customers want proof or there are any discrepancies with the pick-up or delivery.

Reduced paper usage

Another key benefit of this feature is that your delivery drivers don’t need to carry around stacks of paper or spend time during their route filling out forms. This makes it easier for drivers to capture accurate information and ensure that the details are submitted in real time rather than waiting to submit them at the end of the delivery route. This way every piece of information required is captured and safely stored without the risk of misplacing information.
