Point of Rental Buys Syrinx | Industry News

Point of Rental, Inc., Grand Prairie, Texas, has purchased UK-based software maker Syrinx by Higher Concept Software. Both companies develop rental-management software.

Point of Rental currently serves more than 2,700 customer locations in more than 33 countries. Adding Syrinx’s 2,000 customers in more than 10 countries, the merger makes Point of Rental one of the world's largest providers of rental software.

Wayne Harris, president and CEO of Point of Rental, said, “We are proud to bring together two amazing companies and are excited about expanding our presence in the hire association of Europe. We look forward to offering the combined talents, products, and service, and believe it will greatly benefit our customers and the industry both now and in the decades to come.”

The UK offices will continue to operate under Syrinx’s current staff with managing director Mark Goodrum leading the team in Reading.

Currently, both companies' offices in Australia will continue to serve and support that market. Harris noted that under the new name of Point of Rental Software, Syrinx staff will continue to provide the superior support and customer service for which they have become known over the past twenty years.

Syrinx sales manager, Katy Williams, said, “We are so excited to join our team with Point of Rental. Our companies have held the same core values for decades and have been driven by the same ethos. We firmly believe that this merge will be seamless and bring a better experience to all of our customers.”

The merger will bring Point of Rental’s cloud-based software and enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to the European market alongside Syrinx, adding more software options for businesses of all sizes and industries.

Point of Rental Expert and Syrinx are both scalable to small or mid-sized businesses.

Point of Rental Essentials provides cloud-based mobility for straightforward rental and inventory-only needs.

Point of Rental Elite provides customized ERP software built to handle even the largest corporations worldwide.
