LONDON June 2009 – Full service, multi-channel eCommerce and eMarketing agency e-inbusiness is working with HSS Hire to launch its new and unique online hire management system, LiveHire.

Dubbed “the most powerful tool in the equipment hire industry”, LiveHire is a secure and personalised extranet that allows large customers to hire and offhire in real time, control entire registers of assets by site or by account and to change any or all of the details at the touch of a button. Users can also view and manage financial statements and KPI reports instantly, online and in real time. By providing such transparent access to, and immediate control of, all aspects of the entire hire portfolio, customers can optimise hire periods, streamline transaction costs and drive out inefficiencies.

Working together, e-inbusiness was tasked with the design and build of bespoke online management system that combined high levels of functionality along with advanced content management and customisable facilities to meet client and business needs. The development of LiveHire is the most significant incarnation to date of HSS’s commitment to bring the hire industry in line with modern business service practices. The system is being rolled out over the coming months, with additional statistical functionality to follow.

Built on the leading eibCommerce, combining Microsoft Commerce Server with best of breed technologies including Omniture web analytics & EPiServer advanced content management, the new site will seek to provide complete transparency and control of the whole hire process for its corporate accounts, whilst creating an exceptional, yet easy to use first class online experience .

The UK's original tool and equipment hire company, HSS Hire has over 50 years experience and knowledge. With over two thousand staff dedicated to providing Hire, Sales and Service excellence, they have over 250 branches.
Steve Pape, IT Director, HSS Hire comments, “e-inbusiness has been excellent and very thorough. They have delivered what we requested, whilst being very flexible to meet the changing requirements.”

Nigel Corp, e-inbusiness Chief Operating Officer said: “It’s fantastic to see the HSS website go live. This is a very exciting development for HSS Hire and we are proud to work with such a professional team. Although a complex project to implement, we have delivered it to both the timescales and expectations set.”
