Point-of-Rental™ Systems’ Wireless Alert feature was recently announced as the winner of RER’s Innovative Product Award in the computer software category. The winning entry was introduced in the company’s Enterprise 2010 software release that was distributed in January 2010. Wireless Alerts automatically notify personnel of important information via SMS text or email. Delivered instantly to their iPhone, Blackberry, or other mobile device, rental professionals can be up-to-date with the status of their business even when they aren’t in the office. Event triggers may be set in Point-of-Rental™ Systems’ Enterprise software to automatically alert personnel of any changes to a contract or customer. For example, sales representatives can be instantly alerted when a contract has been called off rent so they can follow up or contact another client about item availability. Or, an event coordinator can know instantly when an order is on its way to the venue.
With today’s mobile workforce, handheld information has never been more crucial to successful business operations, and Point-of-Rental™ Systems’ Wireless Alerts provides the rental industry with the equipment rental software solutions needed to stay on the cutting edge of technology.
“This is one of those wonderful conveniences that make life easier,” writes RER’s Brandey Chewning Smith in her RentalTalk blog, “and if you’re like me you’ll take as many of those as you can get. I suspect the rental industry will benefit immensely from real-time alerts like this for a long time to come.”
The RER Innovative Product Awards were established in 2003 to honor excellence in new product development in the equipment rental industry.
