                        Ideagen Plant Assessor and Pickles

                        Ideagen Plant Assessor's relationship with Pickles spans the almost two decades since we were founded in 2004.

                        Early on, Plant Assessor and Pickles formed a mutually beneficial relationship, and that relationship has been a very important foundation upon which Plant Assessor has been able to significantly build its business over time.


                        Pickles Auctions: An Overview

                        As Bruce Connors, Pickles Director – Industrial, explains, Pickles is Australia’s Largest auctioneer of trucks, earthmoving plant and equipment.

                        “Pickles has 20 branches across Australia, many of these specialise in transport, construction, mining and agriculture, turning over millions per month," says Bruce.

                        Pickles deliver superior value to their clients because of their deep understanding of the market.

                        “Being the largest remarketer of equipment in Australia for 60 years, we have unbeatable knowledge of the market, assets and business needs.”

                        As a result of providing powerful results and superior services, Pickles has seen huge growth throughout their partnership with Plant Assessor.


                        Why Plant Assessor?

                        Plant Assessor provides a range of safety inspection services to Pickles across 13 geographic locations, as well as inspecting equipment at a multitude of sales held on client sites.

                        When considering how to handle safety inspection of its vendors’ plant & equipment, Pickles considered a range of factors, and Plant Assessor were able to help work through consideration of these issues.

                        Pickles chose Plant Assessor to provide a full inspection service for all of its Industrial operations across Australia, as Bruce Connors recalls below.

                        “Firstly, we considered the option of doing our own plant safety inspections. We decided this was not the best option for us, as it may have been perceived as a conflict of interest if we were identifying safety deficiencies in vendor equipment. We were also unsure of our ability to develop and maintain suitable knowledge of safety legislation and Australian Standards.”

                        This saw Pickles decide to engage external professional inspectors to conduct plant safety inspections. Bruce goes on to outline some of the reasons behind choosing Plant Assessor to provide these services.

                        “We knew the guys from Plant Assessor as we had worked with them before, and they had illustrated both superior industry knowledge and customer service. On top of this, they showed us their Plant Assessor online inspection system, which convinced us that plant safety inspections would be of the highest quality,” Bruce said.


                        Continual Improvement

                        Pickles and Plant Assessor continue to work together to identify opportunities to improve the efficiency and service of the plant safety inspection process.

                        In addition to this, there are a number of product and service developments that the two organisations are working on together to assist Pickles to provide even better service and value to its clients. Stay tuned for more as these developments are finalised!

                        At Plant Assessor, we are very thankful for the support that we receive from Pickles Auctions, and very proud of our corporate and personal relationships, services and new product developments.
