Since February 2015, Liebherr from Biberach/Germany is offering its customers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland as well as France and Great Britain the opportunity to hire construction machines using a smartphone and tablet app. The app provides a quick overview of the equipment available in the Liebherr hire park and of the Liebherr dealer network. The app can be used in English, German and French.
Together with its dealers, Liebherr-Mietpartner GmbH offers its customers a direct route to hiring construction machines from the Liebherr hire park. The available earthmoving machines and tower cranes are shown in the product overview. Technical data, a short description and images can also be called up. Once the user selects a machine, he/she is directed to a dealer overview. The mobile app detects the user’s location and offers contact details of the nearest dealer.
The Rental Services overview first flags up dealers near the user’s location. If deployment in a different area is planned, the dealer overview can be adjusted according to specific requirements. This makes it possible for the user to filter according to distance, post code or location in order to obtain the contact details of other Rental Services.
In the settings, the user can adapt the app accordingto personal preferences. He/she can choose from a range of equipment for Great Britain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland or France. This makes it possible to plan operations across country borders, too. The language of the app can likewise be adjusted in the settings. The application is available in English, German and French. However, it adapts itself automatically to the settings of the device when it is launched for the first time.
