Prohire Software Systems Ltd, based at Kent Science Park, is celebrating the 500th rental location using its software. Prohire’s software allows vehicle rental companies to manage their fleets from the front desk to the back office. This includes checking vehicles in and out, distributing rental agreements and making bookings. It can also create advanced management reports, which amongst other features tell rental companies what vehicles are renting better than others.
The specialist technology company has been at the Park for over 10 years and is now the largest company in the UK to provide software solutions to the independent rental industry. Prohire currently manages in excess of 40,000 vehicles nationwide and is looking to expand to further locations across the globe.
The 500th location achieved by the company was Jolly Good Van Hire – a growing van rental company based in England and Wales. Mark Hughes, Managing Director of the firm, commented, “Prohire have been our rental software partner from day one. The quality management information the software provides gives excellent controls within our business”.
Paul Newman, Managing Director of Prohire, explained what an achievement this was: “We are very proud to reach the 500th location mark. The company has always set out to create the best possible software for the rental industry, and I believe that this milestone is a testament to that goal”.
The 500th location is once again a fantastic example of a company on Kent Science Park who has achieved huge success since being based here. James Speck, KSP Site Director, said, “Prohire are market leaders with their technology and are the number one choice for independent vehicle rental organisations. As they release further advances to their software, such as online access, it is extremely likely that their achievements will continue to accumulate”.
Prohire software is used by a number of independent rental firms across the county, who also see it as being incredibly beneficial to their businesses. Jason Thompson, of Seymour Self Drive Hire and Storage in Maidstone, explained: “We’re proud to support a fellow Kent company by using the Prohire software system. As a busy vehicle rental company, having an industry leading software system to manage our day-to-day operations has saved us a lot of time and effort. We’ve found the system to be very user friendly, and the help and support received has been second-to-none – one of the best decisions we have made”.
