Great Operating System

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

The many features of POR keep everything at your fingertips which is very useful in a busy rental equipment company.

Cons

I wish there was a class specifically for building reports. I have yet to figure out how to do this. I have been to two of the yearly conventions in hopes of this.

Vendor response

Hi Becky! We're glad you find the software beneficial! I've forwarded your comment on a class about building reports to our L&D team and our IC class-building committee; I know there are a lot of different requests for content, but hopefully you'll see something soon! -Brian

6 Months on the Job

Reviewed a year ago

POR can be very slow and tedious to work with at times, and down right aggravating when File Maintenance decides to stop working in the middle of doing inventory with it. It's not hard to use but there are a lot of areas where steps could be cut down. We currently don't have cloud but are looking into using it, hopefully some of this is fixed with that upgrade to the system. I do know that there are several benefits to making that change that will make inventory much quicker.

Pros

"Items for Vendor" is very helpful once we understood properly how the function works with the min/max order in File Maintenance. The system is fairly simple once you understand how certain features are supposed to function.

Cons

A big part of my job is managing inventory and it is very easy for inventory to be off when it becomes a 4-5 step process to pull items from stock on contracts after receiving from a PO. It would be nice if there were a feature to pull directly after receiving instead of having to open a contract and manually pull items. Its a simple step but can be easily missed when there are a lot of parts coming in for several different contracts.

Vendor response

Hey Ashley, we're glad you're able to find ways to use more of the features available in Point of Rental! I'm not sure which specific processes you're talking about; can you email me and we'll figure out if it's best to contact support (this is something that is resolved by having someone explain how it's supposed to be done) or use uInnovate (this is something that can and should be made easier for you)? Thanks again! =) -Brian

It Does What It Is Supposed To But Has Glitches

Reviewed a year ago

Overall the system is great but would love to have the connection issues stop.

Pros

We previously used a server based POR Software and they began phasing out support for the product and talked us into moving to the Cloud Based Product. The new dashboard features are nice and we were already familiar with the basic functions of the program.

Cons

The issues I have come across in the cloud based program are losing connection on occasion throughout the day. Exporting reports from the system into an excel or crystal file can be tricky. Customer Support set up a folder for me to seamlessly export reports to and I keep having to call back because the pathway to that folder will be lost.

Vendor response

Hey Melissa, we're glad the software is (for the most part) working out great! I can totally understand the frustration of having connection issues with a cloud-based software, though. Can you email me with some more information about your situation (all I get from Capterra is a first name and last initial) and maybe we can figure something out to get things better connected? -Brian

Point of Rental - the biggest gamechanger in our companies history!

Reviewed a year ago

We used to use several different, non-integrated, software products to get our quoting, bookings and invoicing done. Switching to POR where all the features we needed were integrated improved our office and shop efficiency to an extent that we didn't foresee.

Pros

The ability to program and manage dynamic packages for our tent inventory was huge for us! The support we've received over the decade of being with POR has been excellent overall. Investing in this software really was a turning point in our companies growth and is something I wished we had done sooner.

Cons

We do not appreciate the current subscription model of the software. When we initially joined we were able to purchase our user licenses or modules, now for additional users or modules we are leased them.

Vendor response

Pamela, thanks for the review - we're glad the software's working for you and helping your business grow!

Point of Rental Software

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Our last system was so old it was dying on us. Point of Rental made it easy for us to move from our old system to the new one. One of the most outstanding things about Point of Rental is the website. We have our rental website up within our store website. Also we really like the feature of being able to import images of the equipment before the contract goes out and importing the images when the equipment is brought back before the contract is closed. The help desk for this software has been overall been great.

Cons

In the beginning I had to watch a lot of tutorials on my own in order to figure out just exactly how to use it. Also I thought the integration with Paladin was going to be something completely different than how it is now.

Vendor response

Thanks for the review, Harmony! We're glad you enjoy the software and that our documentation and tutorials are helpful - our L&D team works really hard to make those and to keep them updated. -Brian

Best rental software out there

Reviewed 5 years ago

We have been using POR since 1998. Earl came out to set us up and we knew then that this was the best decision for our company. They always make you feel like you are part of their large family. I have had things come up (not necessarily with the software) and would call the support line for help and they are on it. If they don't have an immediate answer, you can know they are working on it immediately to help solve your problem. Great company to work with.

Pros

My first pro is the STAFF - always helpful and never make you feel like you are asking a dumb questions. Second, I love how that the software is user friendly. Third, the software has so much to offer. So whether you are a big firm or a very small firm like myself this software is a must.

Cons

I wish they were a little closer so I could go to conferences and training that they hold. Not that this is there fault - but it is the only Con I can come up with.

Vendor response

Thanks for the kind words, Wendy! Sorry about the location issue - we'd love to have you down for the International Conference. (If you register early then you can save enough on registration that it'll cover some of the travel costs! =D) We appreciate having you and Murray's Tool Rental as part of the Point of Rental family, too. =)

Innovative and reliable

Reviewed 5 years ago

We could not run our business efficiently without all of the integral products that are included in Point of Rental. All of these products combine to create THE singular solution for our rental business.

Pros

Continuing to innovate and improve the product continually. Always looking to improve the software but specifically with the input and through the lens of the rental operator and end user.

Cons

The only con that I can think of is that there are minimal choices for external integrations.

Vendor response

Thanks for your review and for being a part of the Point of Rental family, Kyle!

Used to love them

Reviewed 2 years ago

Always loved their support staff, quick to respond and most often fixed the issue or could show you how it happened, rarely had to contact them as the system ran pretty smoothly, the updates install themselves so no need to get everyone out of the system for upgrades. In the last year, they have changed so much, and often switch it back, and it no longer works properly, updates have to be done manually, screens have changed, support is non-existent, email and wait a week for a reply, if that. Been working on an issue now since last August, just gets worse instead of fixed and no reason why it is happening.

Pros

Loved the software when I got it, training module is fantastic, ability to learn it easily is great, input is quite simple and usually fixable if you make a mistake, handles multiple locations, does depreciation.

Cons

Resale parts handling, reporting, receiving, pricing, inventory counting.

Customer Support used to be great, now you can't get them on the phone!

Reviewed 5 years ago

In the last 6 months: 1. we can't get anyone to call us back after we leave a message for support - they are always too busy to help us when we call in. 2. we can't get them to help us with new issues - such as scanning a new drivers license (POR blames the scan company, the scan company blames POR). We were sold on your system in large part due to this feature - and now we won't be able to use it! 3. today we got someone who had an attitude that was really not needed on the phone - when I asked to speak with someone else to help us, I had to request this 3x before she would agree to let me speak to someone else.

Pros

Great features for our industry. Used to love the way we could scan in a drivers license or info and photo, but now we don't have that option for the new MN drivers license. Like that the website automatically updates from information we input about our inventory!

Cons

Redundant features - having to click many times to close a contract when it is a simple close with no changes.

Vendor response

Mary, we're sorry to hear we haven't been living up to our standards in your interactions with us. Our team has investigated the issues and we've reached out to explain what's happened and how we're resolving those issues - hopefully you'll be able to return Keith's call. We look forward to working with you to ensure this doesn't happen again, for you or others. We're glad you're a part of the Point of Rental family and thank you for keeping us accountable!

So much potential

Reviewed a year ago

Inventory management and billing are the most integral part of our Rental process. POR continues to be our choice for rental management software because of this.

Pros

Inventory management is a very big part of our POR experience. POR has a great inventory interface. Accurate billing.

Cons

POR appears to be working on an improved customer service experience. If they keep at it the service experience should improve. For now I would say the service side is lacking urgency / quick communication when issues are reported.

Vendor response

Joshua, thanks for the feedback! We're glad the software's working well for you and we look forward to exceeding expectations on the support side of things as well. =) -Brian

Solid Rental Software

Reviewed a year ago

Overall stock accountability and management has much improved with POR. Many features surrounding rental fleet management allow easy manipulation of equipment within the various modules.

Pros

Ease of use, overall functionality and features, software stability, very regular updates.User suggestions often integrated into existing software to improve usability going forward.

Cons

Nothing to mention here. As per my experience, client support reacts quickly to any queries and addresses issues in a timely manner.

Best software we have used.

Reviewed 6 years ago

The ease of new employees learning of the software is a great bonus, and the level of detail and constant improvement provided is great. Our old system was hard to learn on and did not provide same level of reporting as point of rental does.

Pros

Easy to use, very helpful staff and the level of detail within the product is what we like most. I love that they listen to their users and provide updates based on that feedback.

Cons

Reporting options can be challenging to learn, but usually there are multiple ways to get to same report, just takes some time to figure it out.

Vendor response

Thanks, Greg! We're glad you're enjoying your Point of Rental experience. You might also be happy to learn about our recent addition to NetHelp, Report Finder. It catalogs all of our reports with an explanation of what each report is and where you can find it. All you have to do is search for what you want to know and Report Finder will find all the relevant reports. =)

Pros

The ease of the ability to edit and change item details, customer details, orders, etc.

I won't tell you anything I haven't already told them...

Reviewed 10 months ago

Great time savings found through implementing Webpay & ESign. I would 100% recommend both.

Pros

Most of it works most of the time. There are many features which we'd like to use in a slightly different way but are frequently told that it can't do that. We've found a lot of value in paying to customize reports to meet our specific needs.

Cons

Getting anyone from support on the phone that can actually solve a problem is frustratingly tedious; they're all very nice, just not all helpful in a real way. Once you connect with someone who can solve an issue, they rock. We aren't impressed every time a human hears a suggestion/feedback and tells us to go add it to the peer voting system, generally that's why I'm communicating my needs/desires, not to go do it again or elsewhere. The sales team dropped so many balls on our account in the last year that I had to demand a new sales rep, who, due to all factors, delivered the information I was requesting a full three months later, eight months after I originally requested it.

Vendor response

Hey Ellen, thanks for leaving a review and we're glad that you're enjoying the software in general! I totally understand the frustration of feeling like you're being sent somewhere else when you have a suggestion, but let me offer the "why" so hopefully it's a bit less frustrating: uInnovate helps us manage requests from tens of thousands of Point of Rental users, see which are most desired and impactful,...

Equipment Service Manager USER

Reviewed a year ago

Once i finally understood the methods of POR and really learned how to use it, i found that POR is actually quite helpful. i no longer need pen and paper and use my cell phone for notes. POR has made my life easy at work. and when i have a little trouble with the system and or have questions, then the calling POR help desk has never let me down.

Pros

1. easy way to view equipment from multiple stores all at once2. easy way to track hard down equipment by setting up priorities3. PO/invoice management is a breeze4. mobile workforce is an absolute game changer in our industry. we are able to capture more income from customers using this feature to our advantage.5. the separation of hard down equipment vs just simple check in equipment is excellent.

Cons

1. dispatching and routing needs a major update. if you are needing a easy way to automatically add or building a recurring route for the day and or week then this feature is NOT for you. 2. adding items into a multi-store POR system and itemizing by part numbers is a chore.

Vendor response

Hey Richard! We're glad you're getting a lot of value out of the software. Dispatching and routing should be fairly easy to set up for recurring routes, but we'd recommend y'all reaching out to our consulting or training teams; they would be able to work with you to examine your current processes and how to accomplish it within POR. You can contact them here: pointofrental.com/consulting. I hope that helps! -Brian

Great software with lots of innvovation but lacks some customization and support

Reviewed a year ago

POR is the main component in our business and without it we cannot conduct our operations. We have been with the system for over 20 years, seen lots of innovative features, and every version keeps getting better and better. Need more support on their staff and implementations are not smooth but its a great product.

Pros

Integrations, ease of use, many features, constantly evolving

Cons

Support is not good. Long hold times, inconsistent training on support, after hours support almost non-existent for a 24 hour business. Many times front line support is unaware of features and fixes and it is tough to speak to an experienced support person. Takes too long to get through, get calls back, and get support in the event of a catastrophic failure.

Vendor response

Todd, we're glad you're still enjoying the software after all these years! Regarding your support issues, I'd like to hear more, if you have the time.

POR is much easier to use than Party Track!

Reviewed a year ago

We have had some glitches lately that have impacted our business - mostly from credit card issues. Most of the issues prior to that have been easy to fix and your representatives are always pleasant.

Pros

I love that it is an easy system to use. I have used Party Track before and I love POR way more!

Cons

I wish the sorting was easier to use so that items that go together always show up on the contract without having to physically sort each contract. I also wish some of the reports were easier to figure out. I hate the updates all the time since we have had to physically do them. However, we are moving to the cloud in July, so I'm excited for that to happen!

Great software, even better support

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, we enjoy using POR. We have moved to POR six years ago and we wouldn't go anywhere else if we had to make the decision again.

Pros

This is the gold standard of rental software. Their support is legendary. They have many years of experience in the industry. Most of their staff come from the rental industry Their software is very feature rich (more than anything else I've ever seen. They have a wonderful system to manage availability of rental items They are very responsive to requested features from their users. New features are being added to allow customers pay and ask for quotes online. Data can be pulled into other software for analysis and reporting.

Cons

Their support quality has suffered as they have grown very quickly in the past few years. It is legacy software which makes it a bit less user friendly and difficult to learn. It is required to be run on a Remote Desktop server. So, the full functionality is not available easily on mobile devices.

Vendor response

Thanks, Daryl! We're glad to have you as a part of the Point of Rental family and we think you'll be excited about the direction we're taking the software in the future as we increase accessibility and focus on ease of use. We're also excited to see our new Pointers become the trusted experts that you love to talk to in the future because they're so knowledgeable. =)
