Leading New England Equipment Distributor Replaces RMI with Equip-Soft

W.D. Matthews Machinery Company, the leading dealership of full-service materials handling and construction equipment in New England, has replaced business software from RMI with Equip-Soft to manage equipment rentals, sales, service, parts, and equipment and assets consisting of multiple lines including Toyota equipment.


Allentown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/12/2012 -- Equip-Soft is the business software system of choice for W.D. Matthews Machinery Company, the leading dealership of materials handling and construction equipment across Maine, New Hampshire, central Massachusetts and Eastern Vermont. The Auburn, ME-based distributor sells, rents and fully services forklifts, aerial lifts, industrial vehicles and warehouse equipment from Toyota, Clark, Doosan, Genie, JLG, Lull, and Manitou.

W.D. Matthews made the switch from its legacy software from RMI Corporation to Equip-Soft because “the technology of Equip-Soft and Microsoft Dynamics is well-positioned to help us optimize all aspects of our business – rentals, service, parts and sales,” says Jonathan Greven, General Manager and Treasurer at W.D. Matthews. He adds, “As a family business, we pride ourselves on exceptional customer service and long-lasting relationships with our business partners; we were impressed by Equip-Soft’s similar focus.”

David Pilz, CEO, IndustryBuilt Software, the parent company of Equip-Soft, notes that “W.D. Matthews is a great addition to our customer family because they manage multiple equipment lines, multiple locations and hundreds of employees across four states, which is a great showcase for Equip-Soft’s capabilities.” Pilz adds that the W.D. Matthews win puts Equip-Soft in a position to really get engaged with other Toyota dealerships across North America.
