Clancy Plant first to adopt MicroCESAR

Clancy Plant is pleased to announce that we are the first hire company to adopt MicroCESAR which is a Datatag innovation to ‘fingerprint’ equipment, in particular, small tools.

Using a combination of a unique Datatag RFID transponder and a tamper proof warning/registration label with an integrated QR code MicroCESAR provides the Police with quick and easy verification of ownership without the need for special equipment or lengthy laboratory testing.

Datatag Managing Director Kevin Howells comments,

“We’re very pleased to welcome on board Clancy Plant. MicroCESAR, I’m confident, will echo the success we have seen with the main CESAR Scheme and we’ve

David Janes, Head of Sales and Corporate Accounts also commented

“With the fleet covered by MicroCESAR, we are leading the hire industry into a cost effective and theft deterrent future. This will also reduce our customers downtime and expense due to loss and  theft.

Through the use of the MicroCESAR security system it enables our yard personnel and customers to carry out more accurate stock checks, allowing us greater and more accurate stock control.

It also allows easy access to online health and safety advice as well as user manuals and operating instructions through the MicroCESAR website.

Being at the forefront of this exciting new technology, we are working with the supplier to tailor this new technology to integrate into our systems.”

CESAR has been adopted by many of the ‘BIG’ names in the industry including Doosan, JCB, John Deere, Manitou and Merlo and Clancy Plant will be the first end user company to adopt MicroCESAR.  Others are set to follow protecting a range of construction and landscaping equipment such as power tools, cut-off saws, hand-held hydraulic breakers and compaction plates.
