Perfect control

Seamlessly manage the purchase of your hire fleet, re-hires and third-party transport for your rental business. Purchasing also covers stock, services and spares, giving you a better understanding of your costs.


Delivering the best service

Automatically raise purchase orders with Purchasing when the rehire option is used in MCS-rm, removing any hassle and stress. You can focus on your customer service and make sure you are giving your customers exactly what they want, precisely when they want it.


Manage your stock

Purchasing allows you to set minimum and maximum stock thresholds to ensure you have enough stock and only place orders when your stock is running low. The 'deliver to' option can also control where stock should be delivered, making sure your depots are running most efficiently.


Becoming paperless

Automatically receive, raise and match your purchase orders, rehires, credit notes and invoices, streamlining your purchasing procedures with no more paper books or manual pads that oversee your purchasing activities.

MCS Purchasing testimonial
MCS-rm keeps an eye on everything we purchase and tracks and manages all our business costs. We can work out to the nearest penny what we are spending and this assists with stock management, giving us exemplary control and providing a clear idea of our financial position and cash flow.

  • Automatically raise a PO when the rehire option is used from the MCS-rm contract screen.
  • Raise POs from a contract screen for any ad-hoc consumable sales items or external services such as third party transport.

PO Matching

  • MCS-rm will automatically check the price from the supplier invoice to the PO price.
  • Automatically pull in invoice data when you type in the PO number, saving you time and increasing accuracy.

Automatic Stock Re-ordering

  • Make sure you are never out of stock, or over stocked, helping to utilise your space and reduce the amount of unused inventory.
  • Linking your part codes with your suppliers' part codes ensures efficient and accurate ordering.
