Four advantages

Solutions by Computer (SBC) has continuously served rental operators since 1982 with rental, sales and service software. SBC’s flagship system, Enfinity, marries the user interface, database and applications software in a three-tier architecture that offers a number of advantages. Chief among these are speed, flexibility, adaptability and scalability. While Enfinity can run on a single computer system, and is affordable to do so, it also easily adapts to networks of hundreds or even thousands of computers and users. SBC offers Enfinity for purchase or SaaS subscription. Windows-based Enfinity focuses on driving efficiencies and maximizing rental asset ROI. The system seamlessly handles precision inventory control by location, customer, jobsite, shop and service vehicle; pricing and discounts; quotes and reservations; transaction processing; sub-rentals; meters; accounts receivable; cash drawer; and custom Enlighten reporting, among other rental operations. Enfinity developers create real-time integrations that dovetail with rental operations. SBC maintains a full-time customer support department to provide assistance with system implementation, training and ongoing support.
