Volvo Rents has entered into a multi-year agreement to license Texada Software’s Systematic Rental Management Version 9 to support the company’s long-term franchise growth. Volvo Rents currently uses an earlier version of Texada’s product suite throughout its 71 North American rental centers and has been a Texada customer for about nine years.
“We recommitted to Texada due to their understanding of the construction equipment rental business,” said Robert Puhlmann, chief information officer and vice president of process and systems for Volvo Rents. “Their desire to work with the Volvo Rents team is impressive and has brought an increased level of service to our organization.”
“Texada’s systems are the right ones for us moving forward,” added Barry Natwick, president and CEO of Volvo Rents. “The organization, products and services sync and tie in with Volvo Rents’ strategic goals, roadmap and growth plans.”
“We have worked very hard with the Volvo Rents team over the last 18 months and we look forward to helping deliver the next level of technology to their franchise base,” said Brian Spilak, president and CEO of Texada.
The Systematic Rental Management product is an ERP system powered by Texada Software providing rentals, sales, reservations, quotations, work orders, maintenance scheduling, inventory control, purchasing and integrated accounting functionality.
Based in Asheville, N.C., Volvo Rents is No. 18 on the RER 100, with 71 branches in North America, 89 in Europe, three in India and one in Mexico.
