Jim Frechette, treasurer and general manager of Quality Rental of Pawtucket, R.I., says that the reports he is able to pull from his software—Enfinity® from Solutions by Computer—have made a difference in his business decisions. Frechette looks at statistics such as return on investment and recaps of how often certain items are rented over the course of the year.
“We saw that we were making a good amount of money on our tents and inflatables,” Frechette says. “But some of the other equipment we rented, when we took into account how much cost we were putting in on repairs, wasn’t really worth doing. We excluded them from further renting and spent our money where we would make a profit.”
