"In summary you could say that Sycor.Rental now is even more innovative, intuitive and flexible than ever before," emphasizes Lars Podszuweit, Strategic Product Manager at Sycor. Once upgraded, Sycor.Rental offers all advantages of the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. In particular, it boasts the scalability and flexibility required in a dynamic market environment. Combined with the new web-based client, full mobile availability of the industry solution for mobile goods rental, trade and service is assured on all devices.

"Employees can use Sycor.Rental on a smart phone or tablet anywhere and anytime, even on a customer's construction site or in a large open-air storage facility," says Podszuweit. Sycor has also adopted the latest workspace concept: Every employee is provided with a customizable, digital workspace that routinely brings together all required information and functions based on roles. Specific business intelligence functions and dashboards, optionally provided via Microsoft Power BI, supplement the workspace.

"The new customer self-service functions are also of great use to our customers. Their customers and suppliers, with no need to purchase licenses, only need internet access to view things such as open items, invoices, delivery notes or rental inventories," Podszuweit emphasizes. Intercompany rental processes are now supported as well. The rental processes have been fully integrated into the standard project module of Microsoft Dynamics AX and the device specifications were expanded and structured. "Especially for the US market we added a best-price function."

Vice President Frank Jakobi points out an additional advantage: "Sycor.Rental and Sycor.Fleet are both available as cloud solutions in the Microsoft Dynamics Azure Marketplace. This means our customers benefit from the Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services (LCS), taking application lifecycle management to a whole new level in addition to simplifying and standardizing the implementation process. Customers will be able to realize business benefits much more quickly as a result."
