HCSS has also created direct interfaces with more than 45 accounting systems, including those used by construction companies of all sizes.
If an integration has not been designed to fit your accounting system, we can custom-build one tailored specifically to your organization’s processes. This interface will help you avoid double entry, improve information accuracy, and save time in your payroll process.
4. How do I get my company up and running with Equipment360?
HCSS offers both onsite and online options for Equipment360 implementation. Regardless of how you choose to implement your new software, HCSS and your key stakeholders will participate in status calls throughout the implementation process and provide weekly updates regarding project action items to ensure that all requirements are met.
5. How do I host Equipment360?
Your company can host Equipment360 licenses and data on your own server or cloud, allowing for multiple users to be in the system and have access to the same data at the same time (or separately). Or let the HCSS Cloud host your licenses and data on our own highly secure servers. All you have to do to access your software is connect to Equipment360 through an internet connection on any device.
Our Enterprise version allows companies with multiple business units to share Equipment360 Manager licenses, while maintaining completely separate data sets. Fleet managers can see data across the entire organization. However, each business unit sees only the assets, jobs, and employees that matter to them.
