Customizing Your Rental Software Workflows with Booqable

In a highly competitive rental market, the ability to customize and optimize every aspect of your rental operations is more than a luxury—it’s a necessity. For rental businesses, this means offering a wide range of products and ensuring workflows, pricing strategies, inventory management, and customer interactions are as efficient and tailored as possible.

Booqable stands out in the crowded rental management systems market by offering a wide range of customization and flexibility. Whether through advanced pricing strategies, detailed inventory tracking, customizable documents, or crafting a custom rental website, Booqable provides the tools necessary for rental businesses to thrive in today’s market.

Flexing pricing

Booqable’s flexible pricing rule sets are a cornerstone for rental businesses aiming to tailor their operations to meet market demands and internal goals. This customization goes beyond simple rate adjustments, encompassing many strategies to optimize revenue, manage inventory efficiently, and enhance customer satisfaction.

Dynamic pricing models

Booqable supports dynamic pricing models, allowing businesses to adjust their rates based on time periods and rental durations. This flexibility means that a company can implement pricing strategies that reflect the value of their service at different times or for other customers. For example, bike rental businesses may increase their pricing during the high season and lower it during the low season.

Managing security deposits

Booqable also allows you to customize how you accept security deposits. These rules can be tailored to the business’s specific risks and operational needs, ensuring policies are transparent and automatically enforced. For example, a high-value equipment rental business can configure Booqable to require a higher security deposit for specific items, providing financial protection against potential damages or loss.

Coupons and discounts

Beyond standard pricing models, Booqable enables businesses to set up coupons and discounts that can be applied manually to customers and orders. These can be applied as early booking discounts, loyalty rewards for repeat customers, or special rates for referral businesses. This allows businesses to strategically use coupons and discounts to drive bookings during slow periods, reward customer loyalty, and attract new customers.

Specify stock tracking

A robust inventory tracking system is critical to managing a rental business effectively. Booqable offers advanced stock tracking capabilities, which can be customized to suit the specific needs of your business, whether you need to manage rental inventory by individual stock items with unique identifiers or in bulk quantities.

Tracking with unique identifiers

For businesses that rent out high-value items or products where individual tracking is crucial (such as cameras, vehicles, or specialized equipment), Booqable allows for inventory serialization. This means each item can be tracked through its unique identifier, enabling precise management of each product’s rental lifecycle, from booking to return.

Bulk quantity tracking

On the other hand, for businesses that deal with items rented out in larger quantities or where individual tracking is less critical (such as party supplies, chairs, or cables), Booqable’s bulk tracking feature is invaluable. This approach focuses on managing inventory by quantities, making tracking the overall stock levels more straightforward.

Product variations and bundles

Booqable’s product variations and bundles features are designed to help businesses manage complex product offerings and provide customers with a more tailored rental experience. These features are particularly useful for rental businesses that offer products with different sizes, colors, or specifications, as well as complementary products or services.

Product variations

By using product variations businesses can create different versions of a product, each with its own unique attributes. This is particularly useful for rental businesses that offer products with different sizes, colors, or specifications. By creating product variations, businesses can manage their inventory more efficiently and provide customers with a more tailored rental experience.

Product bundles

Product bundles enable businesses to group related items together and offer them as a package. This feature is ideal for rental businesses that offer complementary products or services, such as camping gear, audiovisual equipment, or party supplies. By creating product bundles, businesses can simplify the rental process for customers and encourage them to rent multiple items at once.

Customizable documents and fields

Booqable’s document creation and management capabilities are designed to cater to the nuanced needs of rental businesses, ensuring that every piece of documentation—be it contracts, invoices, quotes, or order summaries—can be customized to reflect the specifics of each transaction and the business’s branding. In addition, custom fields further enhance this customization, including all necessary details tailored to the product, customer, or order.

Document customization

With Booqable, businesses can customize a wide range of documents. This includes adjusting the layout, incorporating brand elements (such as logos and numbering sequence), and including specific terms and conditions. These documents can be configured to automatically include relevant details based on the rental agreement, ensuring accuracy and consistency across all customer interactions.

Custom fields

The ability to add custom fields to products, customers, and orders in Booqable is a game-changer for rental businesses seeking to streamline their operations and enhance data accuracy. These custom fields can capture essential information unique to the company or the items being rented, ensuring that all relevant details are accounted for from the start.

Automating document creation

Booqable’s document management system is designed not just for customization but also for automation. Once documents are tailored to a business’s needs, they can be automatically generated based on the transaction details, ensuring that customers receive timely and accurate documentation. Moreover, the ability to send emails from within the app streamlines sending these documents to customers, further enhancing efficiency and the customer experience.

Create a rental website

Booqable’s website builder offers an array of tools specifically catered to the needs of rental businesses. This platform enables users to create a fully functional, aesthetically pleasing online rental store that integrates directly with their Booqable account, ensuring a cohesive ecosystem for managing rentals, tracking inventory, and processing payments.

Website builder

The website builder offers a user-friendly interface, allowing businesses to design their site without extensive technical knowledge. With drag-and-drop functionality, rental companies can choose a theme, customize the layout, choose color schemes that align with their branding, and select fonts to create a visually appealing site that resonates with their target audience.

Additionally, combining Booqable’s inventory management system means that availability is shown in real time, reducing the chance of double bookings and enhancing customer satisfaction. Customers can browse the inventory, select items, choose rental periods, check availability, and make bookings without contacting the business.

Integration with 3rd-party websites

In addition to offering a website builder, companies can use Booqable to add rentals to an existing website. This requires very little coding knowledge and allows you to transform any website into an online booking system with your inventory, live availability, and online bookings.

Whether you prefer videos or written instructions, detailed guides for integrating Booqable with WordPress, Squarespace, Shopify, and more are provided. There is also a list of Booqable experts who can help you create the perfect rental website no matter where you are in the world.
