Stop wasting time getting the wrong hire quotes for your project


Posted by PlantMiner
A peek into the team assisting PlantMiner hirers, from portable toilets to 100 tonne excavators, and everything in between. Beginning with one business development employee in 2013, PlantMiner now has entire teams covering the needs of plant, equipment and subcontractor needs in every Australian state. When you're growing that fast, how do you stay true to your founding principles of procurement made simple?

According to Senior Business Development Manager Max Clarke, the team sustains its innovative and ultimately successful service through an unparalleled dedication to leads.

Our Business Development Team generates and manages leads that come for a variety of sources in order to ensure we can make the process of hiring equipment easier. Every request, big or small, is managed in a way that will make sure it will result in a successful hire. Everyday our team is facilitating more and more successful hires.

In one day, the Business Development team secured hundreds-of-thousands of work for PlantMiner suppliers and simplified the procurement process for a high volume of hirers.

To list a few - the confirmed work included civil packages up to $180,000, dry hire equipment for $60,000 on one project and $54,000 for another.

These projects are just a snippet of the scale of work we've seen this month.

I recently used Plant Miner as a source for bulk earthworks tenders for a Project at Eight Mile Plains. I found this worked well as it meant that I did not have to spend time searching for sub-contractors to tender on the works and managed to get half a dozen prices back within a week.

So while it was business during the day of June 25th, our team was able to celebrate our effective solution to procurement processes by winning the iAwards 2015 Start Up Of The Year at night.
