SmartEquip and Alert Management Systems have announced a strategic partnership to integrate their respective software platforms. The partnership is expected to provide Alert customers a significant reduction in equipment operating costs.

"We are pleased to extend and connect our network directly into the workflow of participating Alert users,” said Fernando Pinera, SmartEquip president and chief operating officer. "Our companies share a steadfast dedication to serving customers with superior software and this integration of technologies will deliver enhanced efficiency to users with a decrease in wrench time, less overtime and down equipment and increased profitability.”

“We’re thrilled to offer Alert users the opportunity to seamlessly interface with SmartEquip,” added Mary Crosslin, co-president and chief operating officer of Alert. “Our integration will offer Alert users the ability to connect with SmartEquip in the work order process and create a purchase order if the part isn’t in stock. Savvy equipment rental operations will save countless hours and potential mistakes by automating a once time-consuming and error-prone process. We’re further delighted to offer this integration as a baseline feature of Alert.”
