The industry leader in event design for decades has joined the Point of Rental family. We’ve started taking user suggestions and are implementing the first upgrades to the software since 2012. Why do more than 1,000 companies worldwide use PartyCAD to plan their events?
PartyCAD templates make event design quick and easy. You can also build your own from scratch or modify layouts with just one click. It goes beyond the design, allowing you to watermark images, add your company’s branding, or append a price report to go with your layout.
Even if you’re able to visualize an event based on a floor plan, we’ve all worked with someone who just needs more. Help your team and your customers visualize an event with 2D and 3D event modeling or even video walkthroughs.
Over 1500 pieces of pre-built furniture – if you can rent it, it’s probably already in the software. Tables and chairs. Casino and catering equipment. PA and AV equipment. Stages, dance floors, pipe and drape modules, pavilions, awnings and signs. Heck, PartyCAD even has a collection of lawn furniture that includes gazebos, umbrella tables, and lattice screens.
Once your design is complete, use the one-click export function to generate a quote within your Point of Rental Software based on your item availability and pricing.
A: PartyCAD’s creator and owner, Hank Hufnagel, passed away on June 28, 2018. Because he loved the software and the relationships he’d built within the industry, he “never could bring himself to part with PartyCAD,” but he left his son, Pete, with Point of Rental CEO Wayne Harris’s business card in a folder titled “Selling the Business.” Given our history in rental and our respect for Hank and the software, we jumped at the opportunity to provide a more complete software for our party and event rental customers.
A: We’re still early in the stages of checking out the code and figuring out exactly what we’ll be adding from here. We know we intend to modernize the software, implement web-based functionality, integrate it into our other software products, and build from there, but we don’t have a timeline or schedule yet. In the meantime, you’ll be able to continue using the same great software you know and love.
A: Point of Rental’s support team is made up of rental experts! If you’re already a Point of Rental customer and you use our phone support, we’ll be able to provide phone support. Otherwise, email is the best way to get feedback for anything that can’t be solved by Hank’s extensive video tutorial library.
A: Surprise! Now you are a Point of Rental customer. Feels good, right? Secondly, yes, you will still be able to use PartyCAD, even if you are using another rental software to manage the rest of your business.
