Jaama is continuing its drive into the plant, equipment and tool hire sector with its industry-leading management software system and will be highlighting the latest enhancements at Plantworx 2017 taking place from June 6-8 at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, Leicestershire.
The leading fleet and asset management software company significantly enhanced its Key2 Hire Management software system at the start of 2017 introducing a range of sophisticated new features to boost business and user efficiencies.
The enhancement was designed to widen the marketplace attractiveness of Key2 Hire Management as the functionality enables hire equipment outside of the pure plant sector to be managed, such as generators and toilets.
New features incorporated into the relaunched web-based system include:
•Day Book – a new transport management system for suppliers to organise equipment deliveries and collections with the ability to allocate individual assignments to drivers and vehicles thus creating bespoke journey schedules to improve business efficiencies. 
•Quick Hire Improvements – operators can update contracts in less clicks by adding individual items requested for hire to existing contracts and immediately issuing a delivery note. 
•Damage Management: Mark item damage at off-hire – it allows for equipment damage to be recorded within the system at off-hire. Key2 will save pictures and notes of the damage and create damage notifications and letters. Users can then create a one-off damage invoice or place the item into Workshop. 
•Key2 Today – customisable, real-time visual reporting dashboard; it shows users high level information in an easy, graphical interface. Information available in the graphs includes contract by status, asset status, cross hire by group, revenue by customer and top 10 earning groups.
Jordan Thompson, Jaama’s hire software manager, said: “Key2 Hire Management is the most sophisticated system available in the hire sector. We are winning new business and anticipate that trend will continue across small, medium and large suppliers in the hire management sector.”
