UK-based equipment hire specialist HSS Hire has launched HSSProService, which aims to change how airports and gateway businesses buy and hire equipment and materials

The new platform is the UK's largest online building services proposition, the company said, giving businesses of all sizes instant access to over 900 sellers and 50,000 active products.

Dani Hodges, chief commercial officer at HSS ProService, said: “We’re extremely proud and excited to take HSS ProService to market. 

“Having trialled the marketplace with existing customers over the last few months, we’ve seen immediate uptake from a broad range of businesses. We’ve had some fantastic feedback already, and now we’re excited to start building on that community.

“Our mission is to provide the ultimate all-in-one marketplace that simplifies and centralises the entire procurement process, from sourcing to supply chain management.”

Through this single marketplace, businesses can streamline their purchasing processes, enhance admin efficiency, and gain control and insight into their spending activity.

Key features of HSS ProService include: an emissions calculation based on manufacturer information and DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) conversion factors that measures CO2e equivalent per hour for emitting products; the ability to set user access and approval flows so digital paper trails track and store automatically; and real-time visibility on spend across users, sites and projects.

Hodges added: "We’ve been really lucky that we’ve been able to invest so much time and resource into the marketplace. Many companies can’t and that’s why we’re so keen to make it a real community space for those that want to get ahead in sustainability reporting and enjoy the commercial advantages that come hand in hand with that.”
