Streamlining Rental Operations and Enhancing Customer Experience


Rentals is a growing rental business that offers a wide range of equipment and tools for various industries and individuals. They faced challenges in managing inventory, tracking rental orders, and providing a seamless customer experience. To overcome these challenges and improve their rental operations, VIC Rentals decided to implement a modern cloud retail point of sale (POS) system tailored to their specific needs.


Rentals partnered with a technology provider AWAYCO POSCONNEX to implement a comprehensive cloud retail POS solution customised for their rental business. Here's how the solution addressed their key challenges:

  1. Efficient Rental Order Management: The AWAYCO POSCONNEX enabled VIC Rentals to manage rental orders efficiently. It included features such as barcode scanning and item lookup, making it easy to find and add rental items to orders. The system also allowed sales associates to set rental periods, calculate rental charges, and schedule equipment availability, ensuring smooth and accurate rental order management.
  2. Inventory Tracking and Availability: The AWAYCO POSCONNEX integrated with VIC Rentals' inventory management system, providing real-time visibility into stock levels and equipment availability. This allowed the staff to quickly check the availability of rental items, avoid double bookings, and make informed decisions when suggesting alternative items to customers in case of unavailability.
  3. Reservation and Contract Management: The AWAYCO POSCONNEX facilitated easy reservation management for VIC Rentals. Customers could reserve rental items in advance through various channels, such as in-store, online, or via phone. The system automatically generated rental contracts and stored customer details, rental terms, and agreements. This streamlined the rental process and reduced administrative overhead.
  4. Integrated Payment Processing: The AWAYCO POSCONNEX integrated with payment gateways, enabling seamless and secure payment processing. Customers could pay for their rentals using various payment methods, including credit cards, debit cards, or cash. The system generated receipts and recorded payment information, simplifying the reconciliation process, and providing accurate financial records.
  5. Customer Service and Support: The POS system included features to enhance customer service and support. It allowed sales associates to access customer rental history, preferences, and special requests. This information enabled personalised customer interactions and efficient resolution of any issues or inquiries. Additionally, the system provided automated reminders for equipment returns, ensuring timely returns and reducing late fees.
