Know Your Equipment Costs

Total Cost of Ownership

Construction businesses are asset-intensive and equipment is one of the biggest investments and cost centers. Between initial acquisition costs, over or under utilization, maintenance and repair costs and depreciation, contractors need accurate equipment cost information to easily draw conclusions on how much their assets are costing or earning them.

Tenna’s equipment management software and asset tracking solutions give you insights that better inform you of your equipment costs and total cost of ownership for each asset in your mixed equipment fleet, as well as revenue generated from using and renting out your owned assets that reduces your total costs.

Knowing your accurate equipment cost data helps inform equipment managers and business owners when it makes better sense to own vs. rent and know when it’s time to unload an asset that is costing your more than its working for the business.
