A provider of rental tools and equipment to the construction and industrial services industry has created a self-service equipment storage and rental solution. The RFID-enabled onsite mobile equipment pod offers flexible hours to accommodate customers, and enables workers to rent the equipment they need, while unused tools remain in the trailer. Tools leaving or returning to the pod are automatically tracked, and rental fees are assessed by means of embedded RFID tags and a fixed UHF RFID reader integrated into the pod. Learn how the pod’s tracking systems automatically update a customer’s account on the firm’s extranet system, thereby offering the customer full visibility regarding its current usage and incurred charges.
