Digital marketplace for machinery and equipment rental

San Francisco-based Getable was founded in 2010 to make it easier to connect contractors with the equipment they needed to get a job done. It offers free-to-download apps that enable construction crews to track equipment in the field that they already own, and to manage orders for equipment that comes from third-party rental agencies. The app gives contractors more choice for vendors to rent from, enabling them to choose based on an existing relationship, negotiated pricing, or volume-based incentives. Getable takes a 10 percent commission on any equipment ordered through the app. Getable also provides more transparency to contractors about the assets that they have under management for any given job, the costs associated with those assets, as well as where and how often particular equipment is being used.
