Grand Prairie, Texas (PressExposure) January 18, 2013 -- The entire rental management software program has been converted to the Microsoft.NET Framework which has been a long laborious task, but one definitely worth the effort. Among many benefits, the move to the new framework ensures the longevity of Point-of-Rental software, and because.NET allows integration with leading edge technology, their programmers can continue providing companies with the most advanced rental software available.
With the conversion being the bulk of this update, the majority of changes are obviously "under the hood," but Point-of-Rental's innovative team of software engineers still packed in plenty of features that are sure to impress.
The first, but by no means greatest changes users will notice are the user-interface attributes which include the use of touch screen friendly menus, mouse scroll wheel and new color schemes.
Spell-check, timeline view and multiple languages available for printed documents are more user-friendly improvements. In addition, a ton of report enhancements have occurred in this update, including the ability to go directly from a report to a contract or Customer Balance.
Smart features abound in Enterprise 2013. For instance, a fuel tank feature has been added to automatically calculate charges based on the type of fuel and size of tank for each piece of equipment.
Point-of-Rental's Mobile Workforce App is another ground-breaking innovation which capitalizes on the mobility of a company's employees to complete tasks at work sites without having to be granted full access to the company server. A web-based application rather than device-specific, Mobile Workforce can be utilized with any mobile device, be it iPhone, Android, any number of tablet devices, or even a laptop. Taking full advantage of the touch-screen user interface of any mobile device, the module reduces what would normally be many labor-intensive steps down to a few simple clicks.
Systems Notifications are sure to become one of the most raved about new features. Automatic notifications can be set to send by text or email for end-of-day closings, bank deposits, overbooks and cancelled reservations.
If a company has an integrated website with Point-of-Rental Systems, their customers can now make payments to their accounts using Elavon's secure gateway.
The scope of new features is by far too great to list and is available for users to view in Point-of-Rental's "Enterprise Software 2013 Release Notes."
