  Today, the Twin Cities is full of family-run rental stores: The Pedersons run Highway 55 Rental. The Fitzgeralds are in charge at Hiawatha Ready Rents.

point of rental software helps by donating technology
Almost two years ago, the Point of Rental Software team ventured to Guatemala to experience Distrito de Alto Rendimiento schools for impoverished children.

The majority of DAR’s students come from families with monthly household incomes of less than $100.

Point of Rental software talk about long term company profit
An Inside Look at a Company that Does It Best It was 11 am local time in Fort Collins, Colorado.

A number of years ago when visiting family in Alaska, we attempted to climb to the Harding ice fields or at least that was the plan. It is a four mile hike with 1000 foot rise of elevation with each mile. After several hours of hiking, you would see false summits. As you reached the “summit” you were disappointed to find the full height of the mountain still in front of you. You kept climbing to the next “summit” only again to realize that ...Read More
