As much as it disappoints me, I have to admit that Rentle’s rental system ( has beaten me. On the positive side, I admit that the three young men (now ten!) are doing it very professionally and I wish them continued success. Maybe they’ll use parts of my ski school management system? We’ll see.

Ski school management software

Our offering has been enhanced with a ski school management software module! Take a look at to see how the pseudo ski resort ABC has integrated our online booking possibility. You can have a link or button opening our software using:

<input type="button" value="As a separate window" onClick="'', 'Online booking of ski school lesson', 'location=no, scrollbars=yes, toolbar=no, resizable=yes, width=320, height=600')"

or embed it directly into your software using the following code:

<iframe src=""
style="width: 320px; height: 600px; border: 0"></iframe>

So simple!

Integration with SKIDATA ticketing system

Want to sell the renter a ski ticket? No problem. RentSportsEquip is now integrated into the SKIDATA ticketing system allowing you to sell ski tickets. No need for the renter to get into another line to get the needed ski ticket!

Newspaper article

The November 29th, 2018 issue of Pudasjärvi Lehti had a great article on how the Pikku-Syöte ski resort is having success with RentSportsEquip software.

Here’s a lousy Google translation: The Pikku-Syöte equipment rental company has completely moved to the digital system. Markus Pyttynen and Werner Klauser, the dermatologist, jointly planned the necessary system for renting a car. Programming expert Werner took care of the coding system in accordance with the wishes of the rental. The system has now been in use for one season and has received excellent experiences. Computer-based hiring greatly accelerates customer service when manual recording is completely eliminated. Werner made this system very professional. In addition, he was able to listen to our wishes in connection with the program and the implementation serves our purpose perfectly. The program shows the number, location and sizes and lengths of the equipment in the rental car. Equally, the return of the devices is quick as the bar code reads the products returned and marks them back, said skipper Markus. It is also possible to use this system for rental of other equipment. In Little Syöte, it is planned to be included in the wheel rental.

Here’s a copy of the original (in Finnish):

monthly, no longer yearly invoices

We’ve changed our invoicing from yearly to monthly. This is very advantageous if you have a short rental season.

  •   98 Euro/month for 1 to 100 rental items
  • 198 Euro/month for 100 to 500 rental items
  • 298 Euro/month for 500 to 1000 rental items
  • 398 Euro/month for 1000 to 2000 rental items
  • plus local VAT tax

If you rent for six months we give you the year’s second six months for free!

more comfortable Internet address

The usual URL to use the RentSportsEquip rental system is something like For Hotel Iso-Syöte located in Finland it’s Of course they use a bookmark instead of having to type it every time but a much more comfortable and professional address is to use their own domain. The word rental in Finnish is vuokraamo.  Hence their Internet address is simply Ask us to be able to use your own Internet domain to access your site.

For you techies it means having your subdomain  using CNAME to point to our/your subdomain.

Close window

I’ve tried to make it a bit easier to close a RentSportsEquip window. Located in the lower-right corner is an appropriately named button. Try it!

Every evening before going home

Make it a habit to quickly check the day’s rentals before going home in the evening.

Have all rentals been returned? Were they paid? Or were they returned and/or paid but you forgot to inform the system? Make RentSportsEquip happy by taking a quick look before your deserved ride home.
