Rental software ASAP Rent was introduced at the Rent-A-Wreck corporate store in Baltimore City, Maryland. It was announced in a statement that this will be the biggest store on the new software to date, with the Rent-A-Wreck Baltimore City store managing a fleet of about 100 cars.
Beginning with a concept of overhauling the reservation systems of both the Rent-A-Wreck and NP Auto Group brands, NextCar and Priceless, the company has teamed up with the software developers at Softmonks, led by Shivprasad Ajgaonkar, to give franchisees an all-in-one platform to monitor fleet, rates, and reservations without the need to license with an outside software provider.
“This is an exciting time for our franchisees, we were able to demonstrate and go through the platform at our Las Vegas convention in 2021, and as more franchises and corporate store come onboard to the platform, it allows us to make tweaks to the program to ensure it is serving the users as best as possible," said Rent-A-Wreck president Jason Manelli in the statement. "You don’t realize all the utilizations a system like this needs to have until a team member is using it in action with a customer.”
Manelli, the Softmonks team, and store manager Penny Sottile have been working on the transition from the legacy software provider previously used.
