Point-of-Rental® Software and Positek RFID Launch Industries’ First RFID Integration with Rental Inventory Management at ARA The Rental Show 2015

February 11, 2015

Feb. 11, 2015 – Grand Prairie, TX, Norristown, PA, and Dayton, OH Point-of-Rental® Software and Positek RFID together announce the first fully integrated RFID solution for inventory management software in the rental industry. By integrating Positek RFID with Point-of-Rental inventory management software, asset counts are automated, giving businesses the unique ability to update inventory based on RFID scans. Applying this technology to the linen business, Prime Time Party Rental, a long time Point-of-Rental customer located in Dayton, Ohio, served as the beta-test site for the new service.

“When three visionaries like Point-of-Rental, Positek RFID and Prime Time Party Rental combine their strengths, the industry takes notice,” said Bart Nye, President of Prime Time Party Rental. Nye first approached Positek about tagging linens with RFID tags over four years ago. “Since then,” he said, “the technology enhancements in RFID have made that dream a reality and with all my assets tagged, I now know truly where all my losses are.”

Utilizing either stationary or fixed RFID readers with Positek tagged items, instantaneous counts are added to Point-of-Rental software to validate contracts, plus charge for missing or damaged items.

CEO of Point-of-Rental Software, Wayne Harris said, “We are excited to partner with Positek RFID to add these best-in-market RFID capabilities to our software and give our customers the ability to reduce labor and asset costs, and increase customer satisfaction.” Harris continued, “This eliminates huge amounts of labor spent counting, but more importantly it increases customer service by knowing if any items are missing at pickup and which customer should be billed for missing items.”

Jeff Markman, President of Positek RFID, said, “We too are pleased to be partnering with Point-of-Rental to open new markets to the exclusive capabilities of RFID in the rental industry. UHF and our unique reading and software solutions provide the ability to read large quantities of tagged items, even hundreds of pieces of laundry instantaneously. In addition, the new interface between our companies’ software products gives rental companies a seamless and complete RFID solution.”
