Diving Deeper with Rental Analytics

Achieve Your Multi-Location Fleet’s Potential

Are you tired of wrestling with sprawling rentals across multiple locations? Feeling trapped in a rut of financial inefficiency? If you’ve already been bitten by the analytics bug and started experiencing the benefits, we’re diving deeper into the game-changing world of rental analytics in this blog post.

Ditch the “gut feeling” game and turn your fleet into a profit-generating powerhouse.

Imagine this: 72% of your equipment being rented by your customers, 20% prepped and ready for the next customer, and just 8% sidelined for maintenance. Sounds like a rental manager’s dream, right? Well, the Rental Equipment Register says that’s the sweet spot, and hitting it means mastering your fleet through data-driven decisions.

That’s where real-time insights become your secret weapon. Keeping a pulse on things like labor rates, equipment age, customer demands, and rental trends across all your locations is the key to unlocking peak performance. No more blind spots, no more wasted resources – just pure, unadulterated efficiency. So, how can you maintain these rental fleet standards?

Power BI: Your Analytics Dive Buddy

Navigating the ocean of rental analytics is daunting. That’s why you need the right tool – a Dealership Management System (DMS) that’s best friends with data. And that’s where Suite Engine’s RPM, built on Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, shines.
