Wilmington, NC – KWIPPED Inc., the startup online B2B equipment rental marketplace released a mobile app yesterday. KWIPPED’s web platform enables businesses, professionals, researchers, Universities and government agencies to rent highly specialized equipment from a global network of pre-sourced equipment suppliers. The mobile app is designed for the members of KWIPPED’s supplier network, and allows them to access all of the core functionality of the website.
According to KWIPPED CTO and app developer, Wellington Souza, “Our suppliers were telling us they wanted to be able to quote rental opportunities and execute rentals when they were away from the office. Our new mobile app puts the ability to monitor and manage their rental opportunities, communicate with rental customers, close rental deals and earn revenue at their fingertips…literally, everywhere there go.”
“The app also improves the experience of our rental customers because suppliers receive push notifications of rental requests and can respond with equipment options and quotes immediately,” said KWIPPED Supplier Acquisition Director, Charlie Dickinson. “Our goal is to provide rental customers with multiple quotes from multiple suppliers so they have options—and to return those quotes as quickly as possible so decisions can be made promptly. This app is going to help us achieve that goal.”
While development has not begun, the company indicated that another mobile app designed for their rental customers is a probability in the near future. Said Souza, “Our core customers are scientists, researchers, engineers, surveyors, electricians and other highly technical experts that frequently need short-term access to expensive equipment that can be hard to find available to rent. We believe these types of professionals will appreciate mobile technology that helps them efficiently locate and rent the specialty equipment they need for highly technical applications.”
In just over two years of operation, KWIPPED has established a strong brand in the science and engineering fields and has already attracted approximately 4,000 registered users including well known organizations like: Apple, Space X, Siemens, The US Navy, Yale University, General Dynamics and the University of Chicago Medical Center.
KWIPPED, Inc. developed and maintains the world’s first comprehensive B2B online rental marketplace. KWIPPED enables businesses and organizations to locate equipment for virtually any commercial application, compare options and prices from competing suppliers, and schedule and pay for rentals—all with unprecedented efficiency. KWIPPED’s worldwide headquarters is located in Wilmington, NC. For more information, call 800.273.8404 or visit www.KWIPPED.com.
