                        Use Ideagen Plant Assessor to ensure your entire fleet is well-maintained, fully calibrated and compliant so your machines are fit-to-use every single time they’re delivered to site.

                        With over 120,000 models of machines in Ideagen Plant Assessor, our risk assessments are specific to equipment you are hiring out. We monitor the latest legislation and keep our database up to date, so you know it’s information you can trust.

                        Pre-hire and Off-hire inspections

                        Fully assess machines prior to them being hired out with a pre-hire inspection. Then, when machines are returned, perform an off-hire inspection. This ensures any issues during the hire period are highlighted, and any servicing and maintenance requirements can be factored in.

                        Keep your machines running at peak performance

                        To ensure the life of your equipment – whether a backhoe loader, skid-steer, or a floor sander – it is imperative that you properly maintain your equipment. With reporting and service scheduling tools, you can have complete visibility of the status of your machines and any issues that have been highlighted. That way, you can get work orders raised quickly, and minimise downtime.

                        Easy sharing of safety information

                        Upload important documentation relating to the safe use of your machine via a virtual machine profile so that operators have access to all relevant safety and technical information at all times.

                        Monetise your hire assessments

                        By incorporating the Ideagen Plant Assessor hire assessment cost as part of the hire terms, you are not only ensuring your machines meet compliance, but you have also created a revenue stream.


                        QR Codes - Scan for safety

                        By affixing our QR codes to your machines, you can provide ease-of-access to critical machinery safety information for your customers. With a quick scan of their device, they can access the machine’s digital profile along with safety guidelines, SOPs and other crucial information. Find out more on our QR Code Add-On page.

                        Plant Assessor is quick and easy to use and is very thorough. Our team members can check the status of plant safety at any time, and can also provide detailed, machine-specific risk assessments to our clients when they hire plant with the click of a button.
                        We have been able to conduct comprehensive safety assessments on more than 600 pieces of large plant in the last 12 months, which would have taken us years using our old paper system. The system allows the team to have a more unified approach when monitoring and maintaining the safety of the fleet.”
