Time Study: Digitizing Rental Equipment Inspections Saves 80 Hours of Work Per Mechanic, Per Year
A time study conducted for FleetNow Inspect™ found that companies that replace paper equipment inspections with digital inspections can save 80 hours of work per mechanic, per year.
The study, released today, followed mechanics, front desk employees, and managers at Cleveland-based OHR Rents for 30 days. The study tracked the time spent preparing rental ready and annual inspections using paper forms versus FleetNow Inspect for the 1,300+ machines owned by OHR Rents.

“Even when mechanics have every piece of paper at the ready, they still had to spend time copying numbers from one sheet or report to the next,” Service Manager Tom Yagersz says. “Restocking paperwork, reprinting forms, and walking from a workstation to deliver paperwork ate up a surprising amount of time.”
“Our findings show that switching from paper to digital saved more than two and a half minutes for each machine inspected – with additional savings for front desk workers and equipment managers after the machine was inspected,” Jeff Kresock, Director of IT at FleetNow says. “When it’s time to sell a machine, it will be easier to email the buyer with all past inspection reports to help close the deal.”
That time savings alone could translate into 89 additional equipment inspections per year for each of the mechanics at OHR Rents – which means faster rental turnaround and increased customer satisfaction.
Once the study was completed, employees began using the FleetNow Inspect app to maintain the OHR Rents’ fleet.
“The team liked having every inspection form available at their bench and in the field,” Field Service Inspector Jeremy Nelson says. “I didn’t have to track down a missing form or worry about the paper getting wet in the rain or blowing away. Plus, the app showed me important information, like the work order number, without having to search for it on the page.”
