Renting an IVMS unit

Renting an IVMS unit

We sometimes get asked by our IVMS customers if they can rent units from us. We understand the difference between capex and opex and believe that we should give our customers this choice. The most common enquiry is for portable IVMS from subcontractors that win short-term mining contracts, but we…
