Hire Intelligence UK expands into test, measurement equipment
29 January 2013
Hire Intelligence, a IT and audio visual rental company, has launched a test and measurement division in the UK in response to demand for more affordable troubleshooting equipment
The expansion is good news for the building services industry with the numerous regulations, statutory obligations and recommended guidelines making maintenance and repairs a costly business. Test and measurement equipment is designed to detect faults or risks before they become too expensive to resolve or dangerous. However, purchasing the equipment presents companies with a huge upfront cost and often means they are locked in to a particular product, without the freedom to upgrade as new technology becomes available.
Chris Hutber, Hire Intelligence UK General Manager, said: “It is often advantageous for businesses to hire high-end test and measurement tools from a reliable rental provider as there is no initial outlay for items, and the cost is spread over the hire period. Rental payments are fully tax deductible and storing, maintaining and disposing of products is the responsibility of the rental provider.
Renting this equipment completely removes any product depreciation concerns too. Hire Intelligence also offers technical support as and when you need it. All in all, hiring test and measurement equipment for maintenance and troubleshooting can significantly improve a company’s return on investment: Renting could just be the perfect business solution.
“Our recent expansion into the test and measurement market is part of our plan to make test and measurement rental more affordable and convenient than ever before.”
According to Chris, the technology is available to suit every level of sophistication, analysis and reporting need. But of course, as the user becomes more adept with the technology, so they find new uses for it. The opportunity to upgrade technology in line with evolving experience, knowledge and demand is an essential element in the building services industry. It is a costly industry and therefore essential to find ways to minimise costs without reducing standards.
Hire Intelligence Test and Measurement UK offers a wide range of products and supporting devices to suit all needs. For example, the inclusion of wireless technology in thermal imaging camera design allows it to ‘talk’ to mobile devices, such as an iPhone or iPad, so images can be shared with colleagues and swift decisions can be taken to prevent loss of production and minimise risk. We all know how often Apple launches new product upgrades. Renting test and measurement equipment means you can always use the best.
