Gearflow logoHCSS, Sugar Land, Texas, a software provider, and Gearflow, Chicago, which streamlines the parts procurement process for construction fleets, are partnering together with Gearflow’s Parts Hub Pro procurement platform integrating with HCSS Equipment360, a heavy-equipment maintenance solution. The partnership is designed to create a turnkey solution for heavy equipment fleet teams to digitize their parts procurement process. The partnership will close the loop for fleets from work order to invoice, reducing the costs incurred by today’s manual parts procurement process, the companies said. 

“The industry needs this partnership as many companies struggle with a gap in the parts procurement process, which can lead to errors in the parts ordering process and productivity lapses,” said Hayden Price, product manager, Equipment360, HCSS. “Business will benefit from the efficiencies gained by automating the entire parts procurement ordering process from end to end.  

“With the integrated workflows, customers can collaborate and procure orders from the right dealers to get parts faster to reduce the repair cost and downtime of equipment.” 

“Together, Gearflow Parts Hub Pro and HCSS Equipment360 will create new efficiencies for heavy equipment fleets’ repair and maintenance processes,” said Luke Powers, Gearflow CEO and founder. “At a time where the need for skilled labor has never been higher, our partnership will allow fleets to do more with less by sourcing parts faster, working smarter, and ultimately adding margin opportunities back to their bottom lines.” 

“With Parts Hub Pro and Equipment360, fleet teams can digitize their entire parts ordering process to drastically reduce the costs and equipment downtime stemming from today’s parts processes,” said Ben Preston, Gearflow chief operating officer and co-founder. “We can now streamline a customer’s process from the moment a part is needed to the moment a part is received, filling the gap from the time a work order is created to when an invoice is processed.” 

HCSS Equipment360 is a shop management and fleet maintenance solution that allows construction companies to manage assets and inventory, schedule and plan for preventive and predictive maintenance, manage mechanics and work orders, perform and track inspections, and more.
