December was full of festivities at EquipmentShare — we celebrated the holidays together with an Ugly Sweater Contest, a holiday party at our new headquarters office and plenty of team bonding. But work didn’t stop for the holidays! Although we took time to celebrate the season we also shared some important EquipmentShare updates you don’t want to miss.
Take a look at the most important December highlights, as well as a few things to look forward to in 2020:
Small Tool Tracking Made Easy
Keeping track of your small tools is easy with EquipmentShare Tags.
In the latest Tags video, you can see for yourself how a simple Tag installation enables an industrial saw to sync to its Track-connected fleet. Tags allow contractors to locate every tool and tracked assets on a jobsite in an instant.
EquipmentShare Celebrates the Holidays
In light of the holiday season, EquipmentShare headquarters was proud to partner with a local nonprofit, Voluntary Action Center, and participate in their annual Holiday Program. EquipmentShare team members shopped for two families in need in Columbia, Mo., and purchased gifts on the families’ wish lists so they too could have a special holiday season. Nearly 1,000 local families’ needs and wishes were fulfilled through this Holiday Program, and we were proud to be a part of it!
Our headquarters and branches across the nation celebrated the season together and reflected on our growth over the past year. EquipmentShare President Willy Schlacks said it best in his speech at this year’s holiday party:
“In this season of giving, the gratitude I feel in understanding what each of you has given and done for this company is very deep.”
New Locations Prepare to Open in 2020
EquipmentShare teams across the nation have been busy preparing to open the doors at our newest branch locations. Keep an eye out for these EquipmentShare branches opening in January 2020: Phoenix, Ariz.; Orlando, Fla.; Atlanta, Ga.; Portland, Ore.; El Paso, Texas and more!
EquipmentShare will be at CONEXPO-CON/AGG from March 10 to 14, 2020, in a 4-freakin’-thousand square foot booth! Make sure you’re in Las Vegas to see how we fill the space and check out our latest technology offerings.
Grow with EquipmentShare
With more rental yards popping up across the nation, we’re in full-on hiring mode. Come work with us! We’re hiring across departments and locations, so take a look and see where you might fit into the EquipmentShare team.
Over the past few months, a dedicated team has been testing a new EquipmentShare product called Rapid Rents. Let’s say a contractor rents equipment for a project, but doesn’t need it for a few days or until the project reaches a certain point. The equipment sits, unused and idle, on the contractor’s jobsite—and that costs him money. Rapid Rents solves this money-wasting problem.
Rapid Rents makes it easy for contractors to maximize their rental equipment use and reduce their rental costs by re-renting unused equipment. So far, the product is in beta-testing with crews in Arkansas and Illinois with more pilot programs in the works. Check back in the near future for a progress update on this new EquipmentShare product.
