Sunstate Equipment Transforms Asset Management with Fleet Intelligence™

Challenge: Sunstate Equipment, a major supplier of rental equipment with locations across 16 states, faced challenges in equipment tracking and asset utilization that impacted customer service and operational efficiency. The need for accurate real-time equipment location and scheduled arrival times was critical to avoid the inefficiencies of vague time windows and uninformed guesses about equipment statuses.

Solution: To overcome these challenges, Sunstate implemented Fleet Intelligence, the first AI-powered platform with voice-enabled technology. This solution allows for better management of assets, optimization of equipment utilization, and improved project outcomes. Key features of Fleet Intelligence include:

  • Real-time equipment tracking: Ensuring equipment location and arrival times are precise and reliable.
  • Data aggregation: Seamless integration of data across various manufacturers, providing a unified view of all equipment.
  • Advanced telematics: Utilization of sophisticated data points from equipment to enhance preventive maintenance and reduce downtime.
  • Voice-enabled access: Simplifying user interaction with the platform through voice commands, available in multiple languages.

Implementation and Results: With Fleet Intelligence, Sunstate Equipment has significantly improved its service delivery:

  • Precision in Equipment Tracking: The ability to provide exact equipment locations and arrival times has greatly enhanced customer satisfaction.
  • Efficiency in Operations: The platform’s robust data aggregation capabilities have streamlined operations, allowing field technicians to be better prepared and more responsive.
  • Cost Savings: Enhanced preventive maintenance and the ability to respond to service calls within two hours have led to considerable cost reductions.

Testimonial + Solution Showcase: “When customers ask when a piece of equipment will arrive at a jobsite, I can tell them exactly where it is and when it will arrive, thanks to Fleet Intelligence. We’re no longer guessing or giving broad time windows like the cable company,” said Craig Haddox, director of service, parts, and warranty at Sunstate Equipment.
