  • (1888PressRelease) August 28, 2014 - ALLENTOWN, PA - EquipSoft has gone live at the Pittsburgh facility of H&K Equipment, Inc. - the third business owned by the H&K Equipment Family of Companies to implement the equipment industry-specific software. In January 2014, Taylor Northeast (with locations in Morgantown, PA and Baltimore MD) went live, preceded by Taylor Northeast Franklin (also in Baltimore) in November 2013. H&K Equipment, Inc. carries a wide variety of mobile material handling equipment including forklifts, loaders, railcar movers, personnel carriers, pipe-handlers, industrial cleaning equipment, and other specialized heavy equipment tools.

    EquipSoft will help H&K Equipment, Inc. optimize business processes within their departments for new and used sales, rentals, leasing, remanufacturing of equipment, repairs and service, as well as the accounting department, with rich industry-specific functionality built on top of the latest, best Microsoft technologies.

    "As multiple companies sharing a database, we now have the ability to check one other's parts and rental inventory; employees just click a button and see if a company in our family carries what they need - from main warehouses right down to vans and consignments," says Patrick Koch, General Manager, H&K Equipment, Inc.

    "We are delighted to be continuing the great teamwork between EquipSoft and the H&K Family of Companies, as we move on now to rolling out the EquipSoft product at their remaining four companies," says David Pilz, CEO, IndustryBuilt Software, parent company of EquipSoft.

    EquipSoft will go live this spring at Yard Truck Specialists in Philadelphia, to be followed by EquipSoft implementations at sister companies D&S Hoist and Crane in Pittsburgh, Magnetic Lifting Technologies US, in Youngstown, OH, and Premier Granite and Stone in Pittsburgh.
