General tool and equipment rental management system

A wide spectrum of features to handle any rental

General rental has traditionally referred to the rental of things like drills and other tools, but we know better. You’ve been expanding your inventory to serve your market, and you need general tool and equipment rental software that powers your rental contracts – from grinders to tables to skidsteers.

Software doesn’t solve problems. People do.

Client support in under two minutes

In the time it takes to brush your teeth, your helpful Account Manager will be ready to tackle the toughest questions. Just calling to catch up about their kids? We get those calls, too.

100+ user-driven improvements implemented every year

Shouldn’t software made for you be designed by you? We believe great software is never finished — especially when our clients’ needs are constantly changing.

Integrations for all

We’re really, really, really good at writing rental software. These companies are great at what they do. 

Let’s work together to give you all the solutions you need.

Absolutely! Using parameters you set up, a work order can be generated when a certain condition is met. (Think exchanges or check-ins.)

Recurring credit card billing is a feature available to automate your cash flow during long term rentals.

Of course! Rates can be customized specific to an individual order or ticket and will stay with that ticket through the duration of the rental without having to modify the rate table of the item. Customer specific rates can be set up so that each time that customer is added to a ticket they get their negotiated rate.

Using Alert’s Document Center to send invoices along with statements is a simple way to eliminate follow-up phone calls, improve remittance times, and provide your customers with the proper documentation to get bills paid faster. Alert can put customized messages and show finance charges on statements as well. There are countless ways to improve cash flow built in to the system!
