Selwood’s dedicated delivery teams are used to fitting in with customers’ busy schedules, but a recent order in Devon required a little extra timing precision.
The customer asked Selwood’s plant teams to deliver a 5ft excavator and two dumpers for use in building a luxury property on the Exe Estuary at Topsham.
There was one problem – the Exe is tidal, and the site was only accessible by HGV when the tide was out.
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.
At Selwood, our aim is to be exceptional in everything we do.
At our head office and manufacturing facility, across our nationwide network of pumping solutions and plant hire branches, and through partners around the world, our people are the reason for Selwood’s success.
We wanted to share the stories of just some of those exceptional people and what they love about being part of Team Selwood.
Selwood has unveiled SelWatch – a remote cloud-based telematics tool that offers real-time performance monitoring across its market-leading pump range.
SelWatch provides users with round-the-clock updates including GPS pump location, fuel levels and fuel consumption, engine efficiencies, site water levels and servicing status.
Using the portal, customers can securely log in from anywhere in the world to see live pump data and receive system alerts that flag up changes and highlight potential issues.
Use of SelWatch can significantly reduce downtime, save money and help efficiently schedule events such as refuelling and maintenance.
Selwood, the UK’s leading supplier of pump rental solutions, has won an exclusive contract to continue to hire pumps and pipework to Northumbrian Water for a minimum of three years.
The contract, which comes with the option to extend for a further two years, was awarded following a competitive tender process through which Selwood demonstrated expertise in comprehensive pump and pipework solutions.
