Point of Rental Software has acquired PartyCAD, a specialized computer-aided 3D design program for the events industry.

Hank Hufnagel, who built the software that became PartyCAD in the early 1980s, died on June 28, leaving responsibility for the program to his son, Pete. By selling to Point of Rental, Pete Hufnagel believes users will get the overall experience they’re used to by working with another company known for its customer service.

“[Hank’s] customers meant a lot to him,” Hufnagel said. “I want to do right by those customers who brought him joy and helped support our family for so many years.”

“We’re honored to have the opportunity to continue Hank’s legacy,” said Point of Rental CEO Wayne Harris. “Customer service was his No. 1 priority, and that will continue as Point of Rental takes over PartyCAD. We look forward to working with users to create new features and integrations with the rest of Point of Rental’s software products.”

Point of Rental is working with Hufnagel to ensure a smooth transition.
