“When I came to the construction sector after years in manufacturing, it was was clear to me how inefficient it can be,” says Off Hire Now Founder, Owen Ferris. “I had to do something to fix it!”
To achieve his goal, Owen first launched Sitecert – a thriving site asset and inspection solution that eliminates all the paperwork and double data entry associated with inspections. It was a huge success, and Sitecert has since created nearly 3 million legal compliance document reports across five countries, saving the sector millions.
Now, this ex-SISK Safety Officer has turned his attention to inefficiencies in the equipment hire sector. “I know that construction teams have enough to do without having to stay on top of equipment hired. Unnecessary excess hire bills can be the difference between a project making a profit or a loss,” he says. “Plus, hire companies don’t make it easy for you to return equipment on time (because it doesn’t pay them to!).
“To combat this, we have created a one-of-a-kind, one-swipe system that helps you to return hired equipment before those excess hire bills start to rack up. It’s a system designed by industry experts, for industry experts, and its only goal is to save you time and money. I’d love to chat to you about it!”
