Rentacomputer.com’s Rewards Program

December 2, 2010

Just a few short months ago, Rentacomputer.com initiated a new rewards program for frequent rental customers entitled the Frequent Reward Points program, or FRP for short.  The way it works is that you earn points for rental orders you place with Rentacomputer.com through a Tech Travel Agent. FRPs can be used on future rentals  and services from not only Rentacomputer.com but also ComputerServiceNow.com.

Tech Travel Agents from Rentacomputer.com pay you back every time you rent a piece of technology. Customers can use FRPs to save money on future rental reservations or computer services booked by a Tech Travel Agent. Each and every order you place earns you FRPs and, just like Delta Sky Miles or BP Gas Cards, FRPs can be redeemed on future expenditures with Rentacomputer.com or one of its many sister companies.

Here are a few things you should keep in mind when looking into Rentacomputer.com’s FRPs:

  • Points accumulate on every computer rental, notebook rental, plasma rental, copier rental, projector rental or any technology rental.
  • See any rental quote for the total number of points awarded for each rental. Look for the FRP box near the bottom of the quote under the pickup date.
  • Each point earned is worth $1 in discounts toward future rentals. (Sorry, FRP points can not be redeemed for cash.)
  • Tech Travel Agents keep track of your FRP points and send monthly email statements with your FRP totals.

The best way to earn points is to start renting, BUT if you want to earn 2 free points right now, then head on over to Rentacomputer.com and sign up for their FRP program.

*Disclaimers regarding the FRP Program:
1. FRPs are only earned on the cost of rentals.
2. FRPs are not earned on delivery, labor, or taxes. FRPs are not transferable.
3. FRPs may not be redeemed for cash.
4. FRPs can be applied towards rentals and service only.
5. Customer is responsible for any applicable taxes.
6. FRPs expire 18 months after being earned.
7. Expired FRPs can no longer be used towards any service or purchase.
8. FRPs may not be used in conjunction with other discounts or promotions.
9. FRPs are earned on the first survey filled out and cannot be earned again.
10. No purchase necessary.

Reasons to rent an iPad

October 7, 2010

iPad’s are Apple’s newest innovation in portable computing. They have a 9.7-inch touch screen and the ability to perform most basic computer functions as well as to run tons of apps from the Apple app store. It can even function as an e-reader with apps for Kindle and Nook as well as Apple’s own e-reader app. This shiny machine has piqued the interest of thousands, but many people still refuse to pay the huge price to own an iPad without having used one. Are you one of these people? Why not rent an iPad to get a feel for it? There are plenty of opportunities to rent an iPad and see if it’s a fit.

First off, iPad’s are portable. They are fantastic for things like running a booth at a convention or taking notes on a tour. With built-in 3G it is possible to access anything on the go without having to carry around a bigger laptop or MacBook.  The 3G is accessible almost anywhere and is super fast.  No other hand-held device can perform all of the tasks that the iPad can and still be considered so portable.

Another reason to rent an iPad is that it can take the place of many other mobile devices. An iPad can check email, play MP3’s and hold thousands of books in one package. Imagine flying on an airplane and being able to listen to your playlist while reading a great novel and not being tangled in multiple cables or having to put down your book to switch a song. Everything is right at your fingertips at all times.

The iPad can be considered a gateway device to being an Apple lover the same way the iPod Touch is. Its abilities to be a multimedia player and gaming system while at the same time being a great accessory for the business-savvy person makes it a device that almost anyone can use and enjoy. Taking a trip by car, plane, or train is made more entertaining and more time efficient than ever before. Click here to rent an iPad for your next trip, meeting, or convention.

Customer Testimonial: Tax Season Computer Rentals

July 25, 2010

Customer Testimonial: Tax Season Computer RentalsMy name is Joe Hendrix and I’m an accountant in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.   I’ve had a small accounting firm in town for ten years and for nine of those years, I’ve been a Rentacomputer.com customer.  Let me tell you a little bit more about me and why I would recommend Rentacomputer.com to anyone who is need of computer rentals for tax season.

I was 33 when I started my own business. After working for a major national company for five years, I knew that it was time to branch out on my own and offer something the national company couldn’t: customer service.  Don’t get me wrong, my co-workers and I prepared taxes and helped our customers with a smile – most of us anyway – but because the company was so big, ultimately, everyone was just a number or more money coming into the company.  I got into accounting because I wanted to help people, not because of the money.  

Starting your own business at 33, when you’ve got a wife, two young kids, and a mortgage can be pretty scary.  After I’d rented the building and hired two employees, I was basically broke.  I couldn’t afford a lot of office equipment, so my two employees shared a computer and printer, and we all did a lot of work from our homes.  We didn’t even have a copy machine.   It was a nightmare and once that first tax season was over, I swore I’d find a solution before the next year.  

Someone suggested renting equipment for the office, but I had no idea you could even do such a thing.   However, I did a quick internet search for “copier rentals” and saw that you can indeed rent copiers.  Rentacomputer.com was at the top of the search, so I knew it had to be a good company.  I was absolutely right.  

After one quick phone call, not only were they able to answer my questions about renting a copier, they were able to suggest other technology I could rent for my business and they were extremely friendly.  As I mentioned, customer service is very important to me.  

I ended up renting a copier from Rentacomputer.com and it was delivered to my office the next day, set-up so we could use it immediately, and anytime we had a problem with it, a technician came out to fix it.   Eventually, as my business grew, I found myself using Rentacomputer.com for other needs.  My office has grown from two employees to ten employees, and even then, when tax season comes around each year, I find myself having to hire several temps.   I learned the hard way that every employee needs their own computer, so, when the temps start each year, I rent them each their own desktop from Rentacomputer.com and just like the copier, they are delivered, set-up, and we’re able to get the most current technology available.  

If it weren’t for Rentacomputer.com, I’m not sure I would have been able to grow my business like I did and for that, I will be forever grateful.  That’s why I would recommend them to anyone who needed to rent any type of technology for their office.  

– Joe P. Hendrix, Owner & Manager of small accounting firm in Northwest Florida

So Your Data Survived The Disaster, Now What?

May 14, 2010

Computer Rentals For Disaster RecoveryWe all pray that the worst never comes, but some times “the worst comes knocking” at your businesses door. You’ve been smart and kept your backups up to date and off site.

One fact remains, without your computer system you’re out of business!

As a business owner you need to formulate a plan that will help your business get back up and running fast. Losing one day of business revenue could be disastrous, losing more than that unthinkable. You business needs to have a plan in place so if disaster ever comes you know what to do.

1) Roll Call. This includes a roll call of everyone in your business. Business can not operate without personnel. Aside from the most important humanitarian aspect of knowing who might need assistance or might be missing, you need to know who can get back to work and assist your business as it starts its day to day operations again.

2) A partner can help immensely. Your office has been destroyed, power maybe out or limited. A trusted business partner like Rentacomputer.com can quickly assist you with a full line of computers and accessories. Businesses need more than just stand alone PC’s or Laptops . To operate effectively, they need connectivity to share information and Rentacomputer.com has peripherals  and accessories that every business needs like wire less routers and printers.

3) Business triage.  A business owner might find that important people are missing, or are unable to perform their job duties; a company like rentacomputer.com has engineers, technicians, and installers to get your business up and running fast.  It could be that your MIS people just need some extra help, again rentacomputer.com is ready to lend aid.

4) Logistics.  It’s great to have a local business partner, but what if your partner is hit by the same disaster? His office and warehouse might be destroyed as well, but a partner with a worldwide logistical network (like rentacomputer.com with service in a 1000 cities worldwide) will be able to access people and equipment away from the disaster site which means your quick return to normal operations is all the more guaranteed.

5) So when your data survives but your hardware has not, simply call 800-736-8772, order your replacement hardware and peripherals, load your data, and let Rentacomputer.com help your business get back to doing business fast!

Having a business disaster plan is a smart choice, and having the right business partner like rentacomputer.com to assist your business with replacement computer hardware the minute disaster strikes is even smarter!

7 Reasons Why You Should Lease a Computer

March 30, 2010

7 Reasons Why You Should Rent a Computer

Leasing a computer or audio-visual equipment is a great idea but why?  Here are seven more reasons why you should consider leasing instead of buying.

1. Preserve Your Credit Lines: Leasing helps you eliminate the hassle and worry opening a new line of credit.  Instead of relying on credit to make a purchase, you can lease and pay only for what you use.  Also, companies who lease tend to me more flexible than those who offer you credit.

2.  Advantages in Technology: When you buy technology, you’re stuck with it.  Just because a new technology becomes available, doesn’t mean you can run back to the store for an update.  When you lease, you’ll always have the latest, state-of-the art equipment such as laptops, desktops, copiers, flat screens displays, file servers, projectors, software and more,  depending on what fits your needs.  Also, companies such as Rentacomputer.com have Tech Travel Agents who are experienced with the equipment they are leasing and who can handle everything from delivery to set-up and maintenance. 

3.  Little or No Down Payment: Most of the time, when leasing equipment, a down payment is not required.

4.  Preserve Your Capital Budget:  Due to the lack of initial capital expenditure, your working capital will not suffer.  Also, your lease payments will be less than they would have been had you purchased.  

5.  Potential Tax Savings:  Computer leasing may even lead to tax deductions.  To see if your company qualifies, check with your accountant. 

6.  Financial Options: Leasing equipment presents you with a number of options.  These include lease purchases, fair market value buy-outs, and structured payments designed specifically for your company.  

7.  Flexible Terms:  Leasing is great for when you need equipment for a longer period of time.  Whether it’s one year or five years, terms are flexible and will fit whatever needs your company has.
