Speedy‘s digital service, MySpeedy, allows the company’s employees to manage on-hire equipment individually, while enabling them to off-hire products
This removes the need for Siemens employees to call Speedy to arrange collection of equipment and eliminates the risk of products being held beyond their hire-period.
This is used by more than 80 users at Siemens nationwide, including buyers, site managers and other site personnel from across its Mobility, Power and Gas and Wind Power divisions.
The savings come as research conducted by Speedy found that nine in ten people working in construction agree that app-based technologies will become more commonplace for solving businesses’ hiring needs as younger generations enter the workforce.
Focus on introducing new services
Gordon Foster, account director at Speedy said: “Our customers sit at the heart of everything we do and we’re continually looking at new ways to ensure they can access the right equipment to successfully deliver their projects.
“We’re seeing our MySpeedy app make a real difference for Siemens by giving their employees a quick and simple service to on and off-hire products, but also to maintain compliance by providing them access to product certifications and transactions in one place through their mobile device.
“We look forward to working with other areas of the business to help more Siemens employees feel the benefits of using a fully digital hire service.”
Paul Duncombe, commodity manager at Siemens, added: “Speedy has been our hire partner for five years and the business has always focused on introducing new services, which have transformed how we can hire the products and equipment we need.
“2The new app has added significant value for us, giving our people a simpler and more flexible solution and helping us deliver new efficiencies.”
