“We’ve seen return on investment from the Equip-Soft system within the first two years,” says Roger Ketelsleger, President/CEO and owner, who founded the company, then known as Yale/Chase Materials Handling, Inc., in 1994. Benefits realized with the Equip-Soft system, which is powered by the Microsoft Dynamics platform (the world’s fastest growing ERP), include:
· Rentals functionality:
· Preventative Maintenance scheduled on unit utilization “has saved us a lot of money we used to spend over-servicing our equipment.”
· Real time visibility into KPIs: Customized reporting within Equip-Soft has given Ketelsleger “the business metrics to run my business – metrics I didn’t have before.”
· Robust service dispatching program: User friendly and provides the data needed to set standards “such as getting productivity reports from our technicians.”
· Dynamic parts stocking of consignment and service vans; the Equip-Soft system automatically sets up parts based on criteria entered, resulting in less labor and more accuracy.
“Yale/Chase is the kind of company we love to partner with, aggressive in growth and strong believers in the power of technology,”
Yale/Chase Equipment and Services is now working on further implementation of Equip-Soft functionality, including the integration of their customer relationship management (CRM) system, field service mobility applications to enable remote work orders and in-car performance monitoring, and fleet management and fleet maintenance functionality – all of which is integrated in Equip-Soft.
