At Point of Rental Software, we are often told that our software is very different from the competition. It has a logical flow, an intuitive edge. Why is that? The short answer is: We know rental. The long answer is our story which is steeped in rental roots…and rocket science.
Point of Rental Software was born behind the rental counter in 1983. However, the story actually starts with three NASA employees who decided to start a small general rental store that catered to homeowners. The entrepreneurs soon discovered that the only rental software in existence was slow, clunky, and had a habit of crashing at the most inopportune times. Since they had worked on software for the lunar lander, they knew they could create software for a trencher and some lawnmowers. So, they wrote their own. Before long, they had a marketable product on their hands, and in 1984, the first Point of Rental system was purchased. Over time and many miles, Point of Rental’s reputation was established as fast, dependable software that businesses could count on. With more businesses moving to computerized systems, sales climbed, key team members were added, and the decision was made to build a second rental store. Meanwhile, new programming staff with firsthand rental experience was busy implementing the latest and greatest technology. The result was the robust software now known as Rental Expert, which debuted in 2001 and continues to win awards for innovative yearly updates. With the opening of our second store and the success of the software, business was booming on all fronts. Something had to give, so the decision was made to sell the stores in 2004 and concentrate on developing software to serve all facets of the rental industry. Since then, new software products have been added to serve smaller specialty rentals, inventory-only needs, and large corporate chains. Always thinking, always innovating, Point of Rental strives to answer your rental needs, no matter what segment of rental you’re in!
Today, Point of Rental Software is used all over the world, and we continue to lead the industry as the premier provider of rental management software.
