In response to company growth, Point-of-Rental Systems continues to seek qualified rental professionals, recently hiring Kyle Landua, formerly of U Rent It Sales & Service, and Ed Hewitt, formerly of Dallas Party Tent & Event.

Landua, son of current Texas Rental Association president Mark Landua and grandson of U Rent It proprietors David and Shirley Landua, was a Point-of-Rental user at his family’s business in Terrell, Texas, where he worked while attending school. A recent graduate of the University of North Texas, he found that the customer support department at Point-of-Rental offered a great fit for utilizing both his hands-on rental experience and skills acquired in college.

“When customers call in with problems, I am able to understand what is going on and walk them through the steps they need to take,” Landua said.

Hewitt, also a Point-of-Rental user before coming to work for the company, served as the general manager for Regal Rent (Classic Party Rentals) in California, M&M Special Events in Dallas, and Dallas Party Tent & Event in Arlington, Texas.

“When I first came into the event business, I started at the bottom and worked my way from an inventory manager, warehouse manager and operations manager to general manager,” Hewitt said. “By teaching others to use Point-of-Rental, I see how the software eliminates a lot of issues I used to face. With customer service support and onsite training, I am able to help resolve companies’ issues, allowing them to run their businesses more efficiently. It allows me to do what I love to do — help companies grow.”

Landua and Hewitt are among the majority of Point-of-Rental employees who worked elsewhere in the rental industry before joining the software company. Point-of-Rental president and CEO Wayne Harris, himself formerly an employee in his family’s rental store, indicated that the company favors those with rental experience. “We have found that those with a working knowledge of the industry can hit the ground running when they come to work for us,” he said. “Besides that, this industry tends to produce very upstanding individuals — exactly the type of people Point-of-Rental wants to carry on the legacy of integrity on which this company was built.”

Point-of-Rental Systems is headquartered in Grand Prairie, Texas.
