Ritchie Bros., seller of used equipment, and AssetWorks, a provider of enterprise asset management software solutions, announced the availability of a prepackaged integration between the Ritchie Bros. EquipmentOne marketplace and AssetWorks surplus management software. Designed to allow AssetWorks’ customers the ability to seamlessly post assets to EquipmentOne, the integration is designed to dramatically reduce the time and effort required to identify, list and sell surplus equipment.

AssetWorks’ SMS users can identify assets for sale and post those assets along with the required equipment specifications, condition descriptions and photographs directly from SMS to the EquipmentOne marketplace. They receive daily pricing feedback and final sales data when the sale completes. Automating these processes can improve accuracy and significantly reduce the time to conduct sales across a number of different asset categories.

“Our integration with AssetWorks’ software is a great example of how much our customers are shaping our business,” said Chris Connell, president of Ritchie Bros. EquipmentOne. “Our customers asked for an easy way to list their surplus assets in our marketplace directly from AssetWorks’ software. We listened and delivered.”

“Managing assets from acquisition through disposal can be difficult and our solutions have always been aimed at streamlining this process. With our integration to EquipmentOne, we’re delivering additional value and really closing the loop on asset management for our customers.”
