ProControl and Telematics

Herc Rentals' ProControl program allows customers to create a personalized web experience to improve management of their account ― all from the palm of their hand. ProControl gives customers the ability to improve utilization of equipment rentals while obtaining account information in real time.

Once logged in, the web-based Telematics application enables you to rapidly identify and locate each piece of equipment, expedite movement, optimize utilization and reduce security risks. Additionally, all equipment categories specific to a customer's contract appear directly on the Home Page with options to "rent" or "buy." This allows members to create a customized profile and save preferences for equipment customers who rent more frequently.

This online solution leverages the latest technology to allow customers to move beyond their desk and manage a project from anywhere.

“Due to inclement weather, we haven’t had power at our Charlestown Elementary School or our school bus garage since last Wednesday. We also haven’t had school since last Tuesday due to the snow so everyone wanted us to open. On Friday, when it appeared that we may not get our power back by Monday, Rich Krumrine, Supervisor of Buildings and Grounds, suggested we call Herc Rentals and see what they could do under the U.S. Communities contract. Over the weekend, they delivered a large generator for the school and a smaller one for our bus garage so that we could have school today. For a contract that I didn’t think we were big enough to use, they really bailed us out today."
