Ramirent AB is one of Sweden’s leading machine rental companies and is a part of the Finnish Ramirent Group. Ramirent has been a customer of Sigma’s for more than a decade and is a good symbol of our focus on increasing the proportion of long-term engagements, which is a part of Sigma’s goals.Sigma continuously works with administration and engagements. This cooperation began with Sigma being given minor system development assignments in the middle of the 1990s. This has led to Sigma currently maintaining total responsibility for the operation, administration and further development of business and administrative systems.During 2007, the assignments have included shifting the accounting system and establishing a new integration platform. A project to create an external website with e-commerce support is under way in parallel, in which Ramirent’s customers will themselves be able to take care of a large part of the rental process.*Source: Sigma Annual report 2007
Construction machinery, cranes, hoists and much more - everything is currently available 24/7 for Ramirent's customers to hire. Everything is sorted with just a few clicks of the mouse thanks to the new trading e-portal that Ramirent uses. The portal also means that the company dominates a traditional branch."Our website now has all the important information on each product and it is easy to compare products. The trading e-portal is still relatively new, but we have already had many positive reactions from customers," says Bianca Timoteusson, Press & Information Officer at Ramirent. Sigma solved the task of creating a trading e-portal with integration to the existing booking system in the Maximo standard system. And the solution means that Ramirent gets a new website, where customers can search for and obtain information on the company's over 1,000 products.Another advantage is that the website information is easily updated compared to the previous printed information. Ramirent is also saving money on printing and distribution of the annual catalog."The website also reduced the pressure on our customer service department. Now they can dedicate their time to other important issues," says Bianca Timoteusson.Ramirent has operations in 13 countries and is one of Europe's leading companies in machine hire.*Source: Sigma Annual report 2008
