Perkins is equipping rental company technicians with a new tool that enables them to confidently identify and service Perkins-powered machines in their fleets, through a major overhaul of its web-based Rental Support Portal.
"As engine technologies continue to grow in complexity, the support of engine manufacturers is critical in helping rental companies increase uptime and lower fleet maintenance costs," said Corey Berry, rental sales and marketing manager for Perkins. "We've restructured and updated our Rental Support Portal to provide technicians with streamlined access and expanded resources, that keeps equipment on rent and ultimately, helps to improve return on investments."
The newly updated site provides easy and quick access to Perkins Vision - a series of step-by-step instructional videos for technicians - as well as basic engine maintenance guides, complex diagnostic procedures, exclusive technical information, and numerous training modules. Free for rental technicians enrolled in the Perkins Rental Support Program, the website has been upgraded to be easily viewed and navigated on almost any device, whether it's a mobile phone, smart tablet, or desktop computer.
The newly updated website also helps rental fleet technicians by providing engine-specific manuals through a serial number lookup, as well as a detailed guide to the Electronic Service Tool (EST), which provides vital engine health and performance analytics.
Additionally, the Perkins Rental Support Portal provides technicians with extensive troubleshooting guides, service and parts manuals, and a service parts lookup that helps them maintain and repair Perkins engines used in any application.
