In addition, PRA has committed to 20BY20, a year-long campaign with the goal of training 20,000 business-event professionals by the end of next year to help combat global human trafficking.

Alert Management Systems and SmartEquip have announced the launch of the completed integration of their respective software platforms. The partnership provides Alert customers a significant reduction in equipment operating costs through streamlining parts ordering for industrial equipment rental fleets, the companies say. “Our integration will offer Alert users the ability to connect with SmartEquip in the work-order process and create a purchase order if the part isn’t in stock,” said Mary Crosslin, co-president and COO of Alert Management Systems. “Savvy equipment rental operations will save countless hours and potential mistakes by automating a once time-consuming and error-prone process.”
