Point of Rental and Askham Bryan College in York are partnering to enhance plant hire (equipment rental) education - the hire software company will provide software and a training database for use among plant hire apprentices attending the college.
Access to the software and the database will ensure that apprentices receive realistic, thorough training while familiarizing them with software used by a large portion of the hire industry. Additionally, Point of Rental will provide training to the Askham Bryan delivery team to ensure they’re fully conversant with the system functions and capabilities.
“The support provided by Point of Rental in donating their Syrinx software and their work in developing a fully functioning plant hire database will enable us to simulate situations that apprentice hire controllers will encounter in the workplace,” said Peter Chapman, course manager and lecturer in construction plant management. “No other provider offered this amount of support; it demonstrates Point of Rental’s commitment to supporting the training requirements of the plant hire industry and its employers.”
“We’re excited to be able to empower students at Askham Bryan by enhancing their ability to access resources used in the industry,” said outside sales manager Les Bunce.
Point of Rental is dedicated to promoting the rental industry via innovation, whether it’s with award-winning software or partnering with others to build a more knowledgeable community.
