Hamilton Rentals asset management divison customers are diverse and range widely both in size and industry.

Asset Management

The Client - National Office Equipment and Office Supplies Company

The Requirement - Following the acquisition of two new sites there was a pressing need to get to grips with the hardware and software that was in situ. This was needed in order to establish the current asset base and the relative licensing position of their new acquisition.

The Solution - Hamilton were able to perform a physical audit of both sites using hand-held PDA’s feeding information into a bespoke database. At the same time Hamilton were able to run a scan across the network of both sites identifying both hardware and software. As part of the service, Hamilton delivered a report where both the physical audit as well as the electronic scan results were brought together to form one cohesive asset inventory.

The Outcome - This project highlighted to the client that not only did they own physical assets that they were unaware of, but they were also under-licensed and therefore had exposure regarding licensing compliance. By engaging with Hamilton they have been able to address the compliance issues and are now talking to Hamilton about ongoing Asset Management across their whole estate.
