Selwood has launched a QR Code system for its plant range

Selwood has launched a new smart QR code system to allow customers to easily access comprehensive information about the equipment they have hired.

Users of Selwood Smart QR can see health and safety, records, service information, daily maintenance checks, inspection documents and other reference information simply by scanning codes on the equipment using the camera on a smartphone or tablet.

The system is especially helpful for contractors on large sites who need to keep track of multiple machines. Selwood believes it is the only plant hire provider in the UK to offer unique machine QR codes in this way.

Pre-hire and service inspections, LOLER, and COSHH sheets can be found with just one click - removing the need for paperwork and keeping all important information in one place.

The system also allows Selwood customers in and around London to easily input machines onto the NRMM register, making it easier and quicker to get machinery on site.

Future plans include the addition of maintenance tutorial videos for specific items of hire equipment and vehicles. The Selwood Plant catalogue will also include model-specific QR codes for all products in the fleet for the first time, enabling clients to access additional information as they browse.

Scott Butler, Operations and Fleet Manager at Selwood, said ‘This is a really smart system that means we and our customers no longer have to rely on paper copies of important documentation and can ensure the information is not lost or damaged.

“Most importantly, it’s simple for customers to use. During trials, customers have told us that it is very straightforward to use and helpful to find all the documentation they need in one place – particularly when there are many machines in use on a site or project.”
