By Joe Malone19 January 2017
US rental company Herc Rentals is aiming to consolidate its business processes and gain flexibility in its equipment rental services with the implementation of Infor CloudSuite Equipment Rental and Infor CloudSuite HCM (Human Capital Management) into its IT system.
Infor – the creator of the programmes – said Herc Rentals wanted to simplify the way it managed its 4600 employees, spread across 280 branches. Infor added that Herc Rentals wanted to simplify the way it met customer demands by consolidating data, reducing customisations and bolstering operational efficiencies.
Infor said that its programme – Infor CloudSuite Equipment Rental – would enhance Herc’s operations by increasing visibility into its fleet management and asset availability.
Infor CloudSuite will provide Herc Rentals with a modern enterprise resource planning (ERP) system which will consolidate and manage its office activities, according to Infor. It added that the cloud element would reduce Herc’s costs by switching Herc Rentals to a subscription-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) model, which is hosted by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Richard Marani, senior vice president and chief information officer, Herc Rentals, said, “We operate in a highly competitive industry, which requires us to maintain a balance between lean, efficient operations and an effective yet scalable output to adhere to customer demands.
“By modernising our operations with Infor, we not only improve the way we conduct business, but also assume a leadership role in driving innovation for the global equipment rental industry. Infor CloudSuite provides us with additional flexibility and cost transparency that help us improve the way we conduct business.”
