Not so long ago, most of us would reach for the phone if we wanted to book a hotel, flight or taxi. Would you do the same now? Our guess is, probably not!
Today, digital innovation has reached the crane and construction sector, thanks to the launch of MYCRANE – the world’s first online platform for the search and selection of cranes.
Gone are the days that a contractor looking for a crane has to pick up the phone, or keep tabs on multiple quotes from assorted vendors (that may – or may not – be directly comparable).
With MYCRANE, the customer simply has to register an enquiry before receiving comprehensive, directly-comparable quotations from a range of registered crane companies (all of them carefully vetted).
The service, which is free and easy to use for both contractors and equipment providers, has been designed by a management team with many years’ experience in the lifting industry, including at Mammoet – the global heavy engineering specialist.
Founder Andrei Geikalo and his team are disrupting the process of crane rental procurement – and are proud to do so!
Behind the simplicity of MYCRANE lies a lucrative opportunity for experienced industry professionals to be a part of our success story. The platform functions on a franchise model, where local partners own and operate the MYCRANE service in their home country.
It is already operational in Russia, the UAE, Oman, Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, and MYCRANE will shortly announce the appointment of a number of additional franchisees who will open the service in other key markets.
While MYCRANE is free to use, a fixed percentage commission is charged whenever a crane is fixed on the platform. Spend on crane rental makes up a high percentage of the overall cost of many construction projects, meaning high earning potential for those who operate the service.
We now invite you to consider starting your new business today and being a part of the MYCRANE success story…
We would like to hear from individuals with experience of working in any related sectors, such as cranes, transport/ logistics and EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction), who believe in our concept of digitalisation of the crane industry and are ready for a new challenge.
Kirill Vishensky is a seasoned project freight forwarder with 30 years’ experience working on heavy lifts in the Middle East, Russia and Europe. Along with a business associate, Kirill was recently appointed as the MYCRANE franchise partner for the United Arab Emirates and Oman.
Kirill says: “I was initially attracted to the MYCRANE concept because it can be very difficult to locate the right equipment needed for a particular project, in the right place at the right time. After talking to the MYCRANE team and learning more about the platform, I am extremely impressed, both with the way it has been designed and the reception from the market.
“It is for these reasons that I decided to become a MYCRANE franchise partner, and the service is already proving to be a big hit in our markets of the UAE and Oman.”
If, like Kirill, you are interested in operating the platform in your home country, the MYCRANE team would be pleased to hear from you. Applications are sought from those with commercial experience, financial means and the desire to innovate and grow a new business. Logistics or crane/ construction industry experience is desirable.
We look forward to hearing from you.
