Point of Rental software, a Texas-based company that offers rental and inventory management solutions, was named Silver Award Winner of Rental Equipment Register Magazine’s 2015 Innovative Product of the Year Awards.
The winning entry is the Contract Fulfillment feature from Point of Rental’s enterprise level RentalExpert Software. Designed to replace load slips and prep reports, the feature combines real-time rental contract processing with the flexibility of mobile tablet devices, making it easy to fill contracts accurately and efficiently.
Point of Rental CEO Wayne Harris said, “Receiving this recognition for our work is a great honor. However, we don’t innovate for the accolades; we do it for our customers—to help them be more successful. Contract Fulfillment is something we believe will make their operations run more smoothly, help them provide better customer service, and ultimately make them more successful.”
Now, even out in the warehouse, employees can view existing contracts and mark items as prepped using a mobile device. When contract modifications are made, such as item additions, subtractions and removals, an Action Status field indicates changes and instantly alerts the warehouse. In the contract closing process, returned items can be marked as returned but not physically counted or “counted in” to show that inventory is complete. Warehouse staff can document shortages or damages easily and create notes that are communicated in real-time to sales staff. Immediate updates mean customer wait times will be reduced and costs associated with loss or damage can be recovered more quickly. The Contract Fulfillment Module gives sales staff a real-time view to the operation, speeding up final billing and cash flow.
While the software had previously handled the process with printed reports, this new electronic function provides a quick and easy way of handling the operational flow of rental businesses.
