Des Moines, Iowa-based RentalMetrics last week launched its online consulting service, which aims to make deployment of technology solutions as painless as possible for construction and rental businesses.
At http://www.rentalmetrics.com/, construction industry professionals can subscribe to research GPS and other technologies, such as business process and project management solutions. After finding the right technology, RentalMetrics subscribers will use the service to help deploy those solutions within their companies and will also be able to calculate the technology’s ROI with RentalMetrics tools.
Courses on marketing and promotion are also available to subscribers interested in learning tools such as business blogging and marketing plan development.
“Think of RentalMetrics as a desktop consultant,” said Doug Mitchell, RentalMetrics founder. “The service provides everything a consultant does, yet it doesn’t require an office, reminders to stay on budget or an astronomical consulting fee.”
Among the tools available at RentalMetrics are user forums, product selectors, industry analysis and podcast opinions from industry professionals. Information is provided as a blend of articles, videos, audio files and rich interactive media. Email alerts and/or RSS feeds let subscribers know when new content has been added to RentalMetrics.com.
RentalMetrics will provide each subscriber with a web cam to encourage participation in video conferencing, webinars and open question-and-answer sessions. Blocks of time for one-on-one consultation via phone or video conference are also available.
