New app tipped to increase construction site safety

A-PLANT is launching a smartphone application designed to increase site safety and give customers full control of their equipment hire.

In a bid to reduce the risk of theft and potential accidents, A-Plant Arena is said to ensure machines don’t end up in the wrong hands by only allowing deliveries to be accepted by people on site who have been pre-selected to receive equipment.

The new app also allows customers to digitally accept and log deliveries, with an automatic notification issued to accounts payable and procurement teams. Following delivery, A-Plant Arena instantly aligns with and updates customers’ internal systems.

Other features include the ability to upload photographs and notes related to the delivery.

Andy Wortley, implementation director at A-Plant said “Arena adds value to A-Plant’s proposition and builds on our commitment to providing customers with the very best service and equipment on the market. The new technology will enable our customers to work smarter and more efficiently and we’re excited to be the first plant, tool and equipment rental company to offer this industry-leading technology.”

A-Plant Arena will be available to download from the Apple App Store for iOS devices and Google Play Store for Android devices. Customers can access the app using the same login details provided for A-Plant’s customer extranet, Axis.
