Point-of-Rental Software Celebrates 30 Years

Introduced in 1983, this year marks Point-of-Rental™ Systems’ 30th anniversary.

Point-of-Rental™ Systems started in 1983 as a division of Overland Rentals, Inc., an equipment rental store opened a year earlier by former NASA software engineers that ventured into entrepreneurship. Shortly after opening the store, it became clear that rental management software would dramatically improve productivity. Noting that many of the computer languages used at NASA could be used for writing rental software, Point-of-Rental™ Software became a reality.

Bob Shaffer, a company founder who is now retired commented, “The first edition of Point-of-Rental™ Software printed rental/sale contracts, controlled inventory, stored reservations and maintained accounts receivable. It was a huge improvement over doing everything manually! But, it was nothing compared to the current version which is a 100% Microsoft Windows® Server product with features and options such as Dispatching using GPS, integrated credit card processing, dashboards, Purchase Orders and integrated web site hosting.”

Thirty years later, Point-of-Rental™ Systems has not slowed down at providing top notch service and software to their customers. To assure they remain the leader in rental management software, Point-of-Rental™ Systems makes available yearly updates and enhancements in order to keep businesses on the cutting edge. Because their programmers know the rental business, Point-of-Rental™ Systems has long been the answer to rental management software needs and does not plan on slowing down.
