Automated Rental Management (ARM) software from BCS ProSoft is the full-featured rental management and accounting system that rental companies need to access timely, accurate financial information and maximize staff productivity.
The ARM system features 13 integrated modules: award-winning Sage 100 accounting software for your core accounting needs, and several rental-specific modules. Designed by rental experts, ARM gives you the power and flexibility you need to control inventory and track reservations; it also handles all of the standard billing methods.
ARM was designed for companies that rent and/or sell light equipment, party supplies, tents, scaffolding, portable buildings, sanitation equipment, plants, trailers, costumes, movie equipment, and many others.
The process of writing customer rental orders and taking reservations is critical to your business. At the time a reservation/order is written, you need to have the following information at your fingertips: customer’s complete mailing and shipping addresses, the availability of specific items for sale and for rent, item pricing, quantity pricing, customer pricing, costs and customer credit limits. ARM’s powerful report generator and inquiry options deliver the information you need, when you need it. For rental order processing software that tracks every detail of your rental business, choose the integrated, feature-rich ARM and Sage 100 system. It’s a perfect fit for any type of rental operation.

Managing rental inventory with ARM is one of those key technologies that we couldn’t live without. We know in an instant what equipment is in, where it is, who should be billed, who has been billed, who has paid, and who hasn’t paid.
ARM is so manageable — reservations, inventory, and billing are all integrated, which allows us to be more efficient and productive.
It was the very best software implementation I have ever been a part of. Even with the short time frame we didn’t experience any down time.
ARM kicks out the reports we want and everyone’s eyes light up. From a managerial standpoint, it is exactly what we need.
Our entire sales team uses ARM. When a client calls in, we can instantly confirm if the rental is available and the client is delighted.
