Online equipment renter BigRentz will partner with Solar Technology Inc. to provide SolarTrak GPS tracking and monitoring systems to fleet managers at over 7,000 construction equipment yards across the country.

“Partnering with SolarTech is the first step in bringing industry-changing technology to equipment rental,” BigRentz co-founder and CEO Dallas Imbimbo said. “We believe this integration is a perfect fit for our network because it offers our suppliers a state-of-the-art way to manage their fleet as business with BigRentz increases their rentals.”

In addition to providing real-time locations for equipment, the new technology features a variety of other metrics yard managers can track from their desks or on their smartphones. They can track engine hours to help with billing and maintenance, establish product boundaries using geofencing, and monitor battery voltage. Both companies expect the consolidated monitoring methods will streamline the time-consuming management of constantly shifting inventories that's inherent to the equipment rental business.

“Solar Technology is excited to partner with BigRentz, providing them our efficiency boosting technology to better serve their customers and supplier partners,” Ed O’Donnell, SolarTrak's vice president of sales and business development,said. “The SolarTrak solution will allow the many BigRentz supplier partners across the country to more effectively manage their fleets of equipment while increasing their business opportunities from BigRentz.”
