Game and Video Rental Store Point of Sale

Game and video rental business POS systems help these retailers generate revenue by renting out a pool of owned games, consoles, videos and related items. Rental businesses need to manage a number of business processes including reservations, rental rates, retail sales of new and used products, billing/invoicing, customer and product management, and more. Rental businesses also need to manage the rental and return process, collect and return deposits, track rental history and generate maintenance alerts.
