Ross Batting, Managing Director, decided it was time to modernise the business and convert to a rental software system. We spoke with Ross and Fleet Manager, Nick Ladyman, to see how they have utilised Prohire Software.

Using Prohire

“The switch to Prohire was a big change, but it revolutionised our business. It gives us data, reports, and insights as to which works best for our business,” adds Ross.

Prohire Companion

Prohire Companion offers a range of features that streamline and automate various business processes, leading to improved functionality. Maintaining a professional image is crucial for businesses looking to attract customers and build trust with stakeholders. Prohire Companion offers several tools that contribute to enhancing professionalism.

“I think using Companion helps us look more professional as an organisation. One of the key things we were looking at was how we could be more environmentally friendly, go paperless and stop spending money on ink cartridges Companion ticks all those boxes and makes us completely digital, it’s a brilliant product.” Adds Ross.

Fleet Manager, Nick adds: “There is a company we use that gives us quotes for any damage repairs. They take the info straight from Companion as it has the pictures and location then we get the quote back 48 hours later.”
