Overcoming
the dread of
new software
Adopting a new software program can
be intimidating, but the right platform
can unleash business growth.

RIGHT: Among other capabilities,
Goodshuffle Pro's all-in-one
software helps tent/event rental
companies track their rentals,
streamline their sales and
eliminate overbookings. This
latter feature enables rental
companies to easily pinpoint
which items within an order
pose an inventory conflict, allowing
for a timely swapping of
alternate pieces. Photo courtesy

like online payments, digital
signatures, financial reporting
and inventory management
help tent/event rental companies
stay on top of projects and
staff activity. The entire software
is also mobile-friendly, allowing
crews to mark things " delivered "
as soon as they arrive on the
jobsite, take photos while out
in the field, and more. Image

f you're like many business owners, the idea of
undertaking a major software upgrade, transitioning
to an entirely new platform, or onboarding software
for the first time likely fills you with a feeling of
dread on par with the prospect of a tax audit. It's an
understandable response, especially for tent and event
rental company owners who face intense busy periods
where everything must go right. Not only is there the
worry that the software won't function as needed,
there's the added issue of getting staff up to speed
as fast as possible so the customer experience-and,
consequently, the business-won't be compromised.
However, when it comes to this latter concern, Karen
Gordon, executive vice president and founding team
member of Goodshuffle Inc., says rental companies
may be selling their employees short. Headquartered
in Washington, D.C., Goodshuffle offers comprehensive
business software to event rental, production and design
companies.
" Business owners sometimes give their teams too
little credit when it comes to technology adoption, "
she says. " If a software platform is well designed, it
shouldn't be complicated for folks of any level of 'tech
comfort' to learn-especially if the software company
offers training for all paid users, which all software
companies should. "
And running counter to the old chestnut " good
things come to those who wait, " delaying an upgrade
or balking at installing a software platform altogether
is only going to make life harder, says Brian Beaudry,
content marketing manager for Point of Rental, a Fort
Worth, Texas-based global software company offering
rental management software and services for rental
businesses of all types and sizes.
