Fort Worth, Texas — By expanding their contactless rental solutions to provide instant relief for the rental industry as the first wave of COVID-19 hit worldwide, Point of Rental earned the 2020 RER Innovative Product Award for computer software.
“Last year required a lot of quick adaptation throughout the industry,” said Point of Rental CEO Wayne Harris. “Our team was able to provide several solutions quickly to a lot of people, and we were happy to hear it helped others tackle the challenges and the uncertainty they faced.”
When the coronavirus first began causing lockdowns worldwide, Point of Rental not only made their electronic signature solutions platform-agnostic so they could be used with any rental software, but they added integrated payment processing and made both products free for three months to any rental business.
Overall, the company gave more than $1.1 million worth of software to hundreds of businesses worldwide to help keep rental running safely in 2020.
As the year continued and in-person interactions were limited, businesses turned to drive-thru rental operations. Point of Rental added the ability to send documents for signature via SMS notification, speeding up the process for on-site rental requests.
The 2020 Innovative Product Award marks the company’s seventh consecutive RER Award for computer software and their tenth overall in the category.
