Online crane rental platform MyCrane has introduced its Inspections App, which helps prevent fraud and reduces risk by digitalising the crane rental inspection process.

The MyCrane Inspections App, available in more than 35 languages, makes use of artificial intelligence to verify data such as location of the crane and the authenticity of registration documents. Images of the crane can be uploaded, along with key data about the equipment. Only live image and video recording is accepted.

According to MyCrane, the new tool is particularly useful where clients impose the condition and maximum age of equipment, or where clients have specific requirements around inspection.

“Our new App is another innovative tool that offers a high level of transparency for our customers, reassuring them that the proposed equipment is as described, and helping to minimise disputes,” says Andrei Geikalo, founder and ceo of MyCrane.

He added that crane rental providers will also find the application useful: “In the case of bare rentals, for instance, our App may provide proof of discrepancies between the outgoing inspections and incoming inspections when the equipment is confirmed off-rent and being returned to the crane provider, because it will be so simple to verify the condition of the equipment.”
