STAMFORD, CT – United Rentals has updated its client app with new equipment access management features, enabling users to remotely complete their equipment and rental tasks from mobile devices.

With these updates, permissioned users can view equipment access PIN codes from the mobile app, in addition to having access to United Rentals’ equipment catalog for product specifications and descriptions.

These new features also allow users to monitor real-time equipment data, tracking the usage and location of their specified equipment.

“The new access management functionality and improved rental experience deliver on safety and productivity capabilities that our customers have requested,” said Tony Leopold, senior vice president of strategy and digital at United Rentals. “Our team is continuously innovating our digital tools so our customers can make sound equipment decisions and take speedy action that keeps projects moving forward.”


Also featured in this update is a new pricing and checkout design, with teams now able to view account-specific pricing and to make their purchase with fewer clicks than before.

The United Rentals Mobile App is compatible with Apple iOS and Android devices and is available for free on the Apple and Google Play stores.
