Video Rental Business

Video Rental Business

If there is one industry that needs a software application that will reduce the workload, be easy-to-use, and is reasonably priced, it's the video rental industry. Here at Phoenix Information Systems, creating video store software has been a cornerstone of our business since 1991. By getting involved with our video store owners, we are able to create a video rental software product that delivers benefits that ultimately helps the video rental retailer achieve their goals and dreams. For who knows best what they need in a software application than the person using it.

Benefiting From Video Store Software

Some video store retailers have told me that it doesn't matter what video rental software they use in their store, because it doesn't make that much of a difference. They could not be further from the truth. The video rental software application you use in your video store can help you make it or break it in the industry.

How can a single video rental software product have that much impact?

That is a very good question and one I will answer for you. Video store software is more than a product that rents and returns your DVDs, BluRays, and games. It is at the very center of your business; nearly everything you do in your video store revolves around your video rental software. Whether you are working with customers or analyzing the data to make adjustments to your business, it's the software that will end up helping or hindering you.

With so much at stake, you want a product that will benefit you and help you achieve your goals. You want benefits like: saving time, reducing waste, increased security, peace of mind, reduce costs, improved analysis tools, and increased profits.

You have the opportunity to put such a video rental software to work for you. It's called Alerion Point-of-Sale and Video Store software.

Why Do You Need Such a Product?

The video rental business is not as easy to operate in the black as it once was. Back in the day, you could throw down some movies on the floor and people would flock to your video store to rent everything you had. I hate to say it, but we both realize those days have been long over. In fact, without the right tools in place, keeping the doors open is a struggle, let alone trying to make a descent personal income.

One of the reasons its harder to run a video store is the number of other media sources (Netflix, RedBox, On Demand). With more choices on how to rent a movie, you have to stand out and beat them with customer service.

Another reason is that people have more choices when it comes to entertainment, so the dollars for these activities is stretched even thinner. And to make matters worse, people have less money now and the entertainment dollars are competing with necessities like food, rent, and fuel.

So if you are interested in operating in the black and want to make money personally from your business, your software that runs your business is critical. You need an edge to counteract those negative effects I mentioned above so you can realize your video store's full potential.

Finding The Right Software For Your Video Business

While there are many video store software applications out there, most of them are ancient and their company's long gone. Looking for a new video rental software application can be a difficult task and finding a company that is currently developing a video rental application is hard to find. Many of the companies have simply given up, gone out of business, or moved on to other industries.

You are in luck however. Phoenix Information Systems is still creating and upgrading our video store software applications for retailers just like you. We realize that you have a need for video rental software that will help you in your daily activities and help you understand what is going on in your business. Remember, it is the software that is the heart of the business.

Making Money Sounds Straight Forward

Making money sounds straight forward on the surface; earn more money then you payout. But as we know, it is a bit more complicated than that. There are many aspects of your business vying for your attention, stretching and pulling at you in every direction. The problem is that we never have enough time to get everything done. So what suffers in your business due to a lack of time? Marketing to your customers, product research, customer service? Whatever it is you are not getting done, it is probably effecting your bottom line.

Marketing your video rental business Planning your success Video rental business is about service

So with most of us small business owners working with a skeleton crew, how are we supposed to manufacture more time to get more done? I wish I had the answer to manufacturing time, but we all have the same 24 hours in a day and working longer hours does not accomplish as much as you think. In fact, studies show that the longer hours you put in, the more your quality of work diminishes. So if working longer hours is not the key to increasing business what is?

Lucky for you, many business owners before you have sought out something that will help them in their business. They were looking for something that would save the time, provide them better information about their business, and give them tools they could use to increase their profits. Many of them discovered that their current video store software was more of a hindrance to making money than helping them. So looking for a new video rntal software for their business was high on the priority list.
