Since having MCS-rm, we have had the confidence we needed to grow

MCS has given our business the confidence required to be able to grow and has given our teams back valuable time to spend with our customers.

Pros

Our favourite part of MCS is the efficiency it brings to us as a business. For example, we save at least 10 minutes per contract when it comes to invoicing, as there is no need for manual processes. We can also obtain all signatures electronically so that we can close deals quicker, and there is no manual chasing required. We have also improved our efficiency when it comes to making deliveries with the Transport Mobile App. With this feature, we can make last-minute changes to jobs regardless of where the driver might be, ensuring that every delivery goes to the right place even if a change does occur, which is common in the events industry. As a business, we have loved these time savings and improved efficiencies as it means we can be more customer-focused and enhance their journey with us. We also know that all customer data is safe with the MCS Cloud, so all our previous security fears have gone away. We have an extremely positive relationship with MCS. The team is always open and honest, and the collaborative approach with which they work with their customers is brilliant, as we all learn together. The implementation process was slick, easy and very professional. It was by far the best experience I have had when implementing a new system.

Cons

We can honestly say we haven't found any bad points with MCS-rm.

10 + years with MCS

We keep on learning lots of new things and can use more and more features. Even though a system is working well and you are pleased with its functionality and stability, as a user you always look out for further improvements, as nothing ever reaches an end to how it can be improved.

Pros

MCS-rm is easy to use for every day rental and sales tasks. You can make changes in a contract and search up an item in many different ways using the item's specification (colour, weight, capacity etc). All staff can find out the value for an asset if it is being sold, as we handle our depreciations in MCS. We send EDI invoices with an easy print functionality to InExchange and have a synchronised link to our finance system for the sales ledger and credit control. I communicate with MCS in both Swedish and English, via phone, email and MCS Customer Club. But nothing is so good that it can't be better!

Cons

Response from MCS Global

Ulla, Thanks for your review. It's good to hear that you have integrated MCS-rm to both InExchange for your electronic invoices as well as your accounting system for your sales ledger and credit control. Our search functionality makes any rental items really easy to track down. As you already use the MCS Customer Club, you can now use the new 'collaboration' area there. This is where you can contribute and share your own ideas for future software development and discuss them with other users as well as vote for the enhancements that you want. All the best MCS

A COMPLETE, INTUITIVE AND RELIABLE SOFTWARE SOLUTION FOR OUR GLOBAL RENTAL BUSINESS

We know there are cheap, alternative rental software packages on the market, but these tend to be aimed at the smaller business - often falling short in functionality somewhere along the line. MCS has a lot of functionality available within it and a lot of experience in rental market, and therefore we know that we can grow with it over time. It has already improved our operational efficiency and has already shown its real value.

Pros

When we went out to look for a software solution we decided we wanted to deal with a mid-sized company which is large enough to be reliable, yet small enough to be flexible. From the first enquiry through to implementation they took the time to understand our business and assisted us in re-shaping our internal business processes, in order to simplify and optimise our processes. MCS is always on hand to support us as and when required, and it is always done within a reasonable timeframe. This includes tweaking our software to optimise it even further for our changing needs and requirements.

Cons

We only make use of approx. 60% of all software we have purchased. The main focus we have is keeping track of thousands of systems we deploy all around the world. The system is allowing this to happen really well. Any small issues that have arisen have been solved “on the fly”. Maybe WE will discover some issues in the future, but we have no worries about them being handled promptly on request.

Response from MCS Global

Hi Jos Thank you very much for taking the time to provide us with such a great review. We are delighted that you rate MCS so highly and that it is proving to be so valuable to your business. We pride ourselves on providing customer service excellence and are therefore are very pleased to hear about your extremely positive experiences with MCS and our support team. We're so pleased that you've chosen MCS-rm as your future proof system. If you ever need any help with expanding your use of MCS, you know where we are and we're always happy to help. The MCS Team

MCS was our perfect software solution because it simplified our in-house processes.

We are glad that we made a move from our previous software provider to MCS, as not only is the software far more user friendly, but the customer care and professionalism of MCS is on a far higher level. We look forward to a long working relationship with all at MCS.

Pros

The MCS team are all fantastic. They have made the transition from our previous rental solution to MCS seamless. They work with the utmost professionalism and friendliness and are very approachable if we have any queries. The implementation process couldn’t have been more straightforward. The support team were absolutely brilliant, on hand to help us wherever needed, and we were able to pick up the software very quickly. Since using MCS, we have been able to save 50% of our annual expenditure and reclaim 75% of our time we used to spend on admin duties. MCS has also helped us to improve our customer service with better document control through quoting and contracts and then obtaining signatures through MCS E-Sign. Being able to acquire signatures for all our rental documents in this way means that the process is now a smooth, slick one which takes the customer from the point of order through to invoice seamlessly, saving the back-office team multiple hours per week.

Cons

None! We have not found any cons to MCS!

Response from MCS Global

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of your experiences with MCS. It is lovely to hear that you have a good relationship with the MCS team. Customer service is a top priority for us, so we are delighted that the implementation went smoothly and our customer support team has been on hand whenever you have needed them.

Used for 10 years and very satisfied. Easy to use software that simplifes our routines.

Pros

We get good comprehensive control over our rental machines. It's easy to use when renting your machines. The invoice management is simple and saves us a lot of time.

Cons

Many reports on our system do not work properly and therefore should be removed. It takes too long to enter your support cases using the online portal. It is easier for me to phone in and then I get an instant response.

Response from MCS Global

Hi Marcus, Thanks for your review. It's good to hear that MCS-rm is doing an excellent job for you with your rentals and we are very proud to have been your partners for such a long time. We were sorry to hear that some of your reports are not working as expected. This does not sound normal. It is likely to be caused by old MCS reports from your previous MCS software version so we have contacted you to resolve this and also to find out how this happened. Your comments on simplifying our incident logging procedures will be shared with our development team as our internal systems are being enhanced on a regular basis and we are always interested in hearing how we can improve our customer experience. You may like to know that we have just taken on an additional Swedish speaking person, Niclas, in customer services to help our growing business. MCS
