Emphasis on Customer Service Propels Honorees

Point of Rental CEO Wayne Harris presents an International Innovation Award to Pedersen's Rental of Seattle, Wash.

I know our families are as excited as we are about our conversion – time we used to spend planning, ensuring routes were being covered, and finding paperwork is now spent at home with family.

At Point of Rental’s International Conference awards banquet held on Tuesday, Oct. 11, three rental companies earned Innovation Awards for their implementation and use of Point of Rental software. The award winners were:

  •     Winner (Rental Expert): Elite Events & Rentals (Oldsmar, Fla.)
  •     Runner-Up (Rental Expert): Pedersen’s Event Rentals (Seattle, Wash.)
  •     Winner (Rental Essentials): Epic Event Rental (Eden Prairie, Minn.)

The International Innovation Awards honor achievements made by businesses using Point of Rental Software to get an advantage in their markets.

“We’re really proud of our winners this year,” said Point of Rental CEO Wayne Harris. “It’s great to be able to see how our software is helping companies and hear those success stories. And after introducing Rental Elite earlier this year, we’re looking forward to hearing what those companies are implementing in 2017.”

Elite Events & Rentals won the Expert category for their use of Dispatch Center. As they converted from paper-and-clipboard delivery organization to Dispatch Center, they were able to eliminate missed deliveries and optimize truck routes, saving both time and money. They also enhanced customer satisfaction with advance delivery notifications and by providing accurate information through real-time insight when customers called asking what time their items would arrive.

Epic Event Rental won the Essentials category with their Online Store, using Essentials’ web services to tie their inventory management to an online storefront. This feature helped the company provide a new level of customer service, as customers were able to use the web portal to reserve equipment online and get confirmation that items were available in real time, helping boost Epic’s earnings 30% over 2015.
