Delivering Results With United Rentals
Here at Barcoding, Inc., we want to help all businesses become more efficient, accurate, and connected. As times and technology change, it can be difficult to maintain evolving demands on outdated systems. We can match your organization with the right technology, software, and other supply chain solutions that will help.
United Rentals is the largest equipment rental company in the world, so they rely on a complex supply chain to help them coordinate the delivery of vehicles and machines. However, their old method relied on a traditional manual process, leading to time delays and productivity losses. We worked with Samsung to replace it with a new and improved system.
A Collaborative Solution
By collaborating with Samsung, we created a solution that leverages the power of mobile devices. The Samsung S Series of devices were the perfect way to bring United Rentals’ operations up-to-date, as they can be customized at a lower cost than industrial devices. Combined with Barcoding’s expertise, we created the perfect match, providing software training and updates.
“The Barcoding team came in and took a very complex series of tasks, implementation events all with varying dependencies, and they were able to find solutions and help us see a clear path and guide us through it,” says J.R. Taalman, Director of Central Operations Strategy at United Rentals.
Now, outfitted with this new solution, United Rentals can improve both employee and customer satisfaction with better accuracy and quicker delivery speeds. With the mobile device system that has increased visibility, customers can stay in the loop with their orders and track exactly when they have been shipped and will arrive at their destination. United Rentals can complete more deliveries and pickups without adding increased operational costs, allowing them to grow their business and keep up with even more demands.
We are thrilled with the results of this partnership. J.R. says that United Rentals has “become more effective and more efficient. We’re able to do more and grow our business without growing our cost base.”
