Simplex Equipment Rentals – Elite

Challenge:

Simplex Equipment Rental needed more from their rental software. As one of RER’s Top 50 companies in North America for the last half-decade, Simplex has 41 locations throughout Quebec and eastern Ontario. Their growth, along with the rapidly changing technology in the industry resulted in a search for more powerful rental software – something that would fit their business and allow them to continue growing.

Solution:

After spending time surveying the market, demoing various software, and discussing the decision internally, Simplex CEO Euclide Véronneau and his team chose Point of Rental Elite to manage their inventory of more than 50,000 tools. The program’s easily accessible information, intuitive navigation, useful reports, and simple and fast contract creation abilities had convinced them that it was the right product for Simplex Equipment Rental.

Results:

While selecting a software can be a long, difficult process, Point of Rental’s training staff eased the tension of transition immensely.

“The user-friendliness and robustness of the Point of Rental system greatly helped to ensure a smooth transition for employees,” said Véronneau. “There is a real desire for partnership on the part of the team that facilitated the transition. Point of Rental has supported and guided us in order to maximize system functionalities.”

Early in their implementation of the software, Simplex is already benefiting from a significant reduction in training time for new employees as well as improved planning abilities based on reports and KPIs the software provides. “The Point of Rental system provides us with dynamic and predictable leasing inventory management,” said Véronneau, “which allows us to maximize the use of our rental fleet and to have a better planning.”
