Great day at the inspHire Customer User Forum!

On 18th October 2023, the Kerridge Commercial System (KCS) rental division hosted its bi-annual user forum for both inspHire Office and Corporate customers. Held at Nottingham Racecourse, the day had a jam-packed agenda filled with insights on new developments and services, introductions to KCS partners, as well as a fun afternoon at the races.  

   What do the user forums entail? These events offer inspHire customers the opportunity to have their say on various topics, such as inspHire roadmaps, service levels, as well as gaining early access to new releases and testing out upcoming features. In addition, customers can collaborate with like-minded hire companies, discussing industry challenges and how inspHire can support on this.  

From sustainability to digitisation, the team covered all of the latest trends and how inspHire can cater to them. This included inspHire's very own eCommerce solution, WebPro; an online commercial platform that acts as a 24/7 hiredesk for your B2B and B2C customers.

eCommerce is increasingly popular within the global rental industry and the main influence is the variety of benefits it can offer to your business: a presence on the web with catalogue and ordering functionality, provides an additional sales channel to reach additional markets, and faster buying process - the list is endless! Want to find out more? Discover what WebPro can bring to your business today.

In addition, we also welcomed Worldpay to kick-off its brand new integration with inspHire Office Edition!

Worldpay is a full integrated POS and Payments solution that automates the face-to-face payment experience, reduces errors, increases speed of service and provides a better customer experience. 

inspHire users were shown how you can use Worldpay card terminals to take payments for cash customers on hire contracts, sales orders and workshop jobs, as well as making miscellaneous transactions or doing a quick cash sale! 

We would like to thank every one of our customers who took time of out their schedule to attend the user forum. We hope everyone took something from away the day and enjoyed themselves! Special thank you to Nottingham Racecourse and The Jockey Club for their hospitality services.
