United Rentals unveils access management for jobsites

United Rentals has launched Access Management, a system that enables control of access to job sites and equipment through RFID badges.

Ths solution, which works via its cloud-based worksite management platform Total Control, connects jobsite access with equipment access management through user profile data and an RFID tag.

United said users can present an ID badge on the lock’s card reader to unlock a piece of equipment they are authorised to operate.

Once connected to the solution, which is compatible with a range of third-party workforce management solutions, workers are authorised for entry at jobsite turnstiles and vehiclea ccess control points.

Administrators can upload user information from workforce management systems and grant access to specific pieces of equipment or equipment category classes and on a many-to-one or one-to-many basis. Users can also view real-time and historical insights into equipment usage.

The user profiles associated with worker ID badges can be uploaded into Total Control from a third-party workforce management solution, enabling companies to assign rights to access equipment based on the profile data.

United said the solution will “increase jobsite visibility and control for safer, more efficient operations.”

Tony Leopold, senior vice president of strategy & digital, United Rentals, said, “Our next-generation Access Management solution connects workers and equipment to help our customers work more safely, productively and sustainably.  “We are differentiating our offerings by connecting and managing data from the world’s largest fleet of over 360K telematics-enabled pieces of equipment.”

Mike Durand, executive vice president and chief operating officer, United Rentals, added, “Access management has become a key component of jobsite safety and productivity, especially as we see projects and teams growing larger and more complex.

“We’re committed to helping our customers Work United through innovative solutions like Access Management.”
