The Ultimate Guide to Rental Inventory Management in 2020
Great rental management is possible only with successful inventory management. Here's our guide to managing and tracking rental inventory in...
We had radio silence for half a year, but unlike Johan’s car we haven’t been standing still, we made a lot of changes under the hood of Booqable. During the last half year we slowly started migrating to a new technology which enables us to iterate much faster on new features and will make Booqable even faster. We moved our office to a new location on the top floor of the Chamber of Commerce building and visited many customers.
This year we are going to focus on making Booqable even better. Our mission still is to deliver the most flexible rental software solution which is still easy to use. The best way to get a better understanding of the problems you face everyday was to visit you and see how you work. During these visits we learned a lot about ways to improve Booqable. The upcoming months we’ll be focusing on redesigning parts of Booqable and adding new features that will make your life easier.
Here’s a list of the biggest upcoming changes:
We are making it easier to manage your inventory. You’ll get an in-depth view of your stock items to keep track of what’s happening. This view includes: Seeing availability at a glance, overview of upcoming and past orders, managing repairs and services and adding notes. The stock overview will include a search and filter option.
If your business is successful, you’re probably thinking about expanding to more locations or you already did. Managing stock in different locations can be difficult. We are going to supply you with easy-to-use stock management for multiple locations with proper employee permissions.
Not the most fun part of running a rental business but you have to charge deposits and/or insurance rates sometimes. Lucky for you we are going to make managing this process – which usually causes headaches - a breeze!
Every business has a different workflow. We are giving you the ability to segment orders and document based on properties. For instance: late returns, pickups today, quotes that aren’t confirmed yet, etc. You can save these segments for everyday use.
Even though you run a rental business we understand you also sell items and/or services. We are going to empower you with the tools to manage and charge for items and services.
One of the most requested features was integration with third party services. We are going to make you happy with Zapier integration which enables you to integrate with over 400 services.
Of course we’re going to improve existing features so if you catch a bug or have good ideas about how to improve Booqable even more, don’t hesitate to let us know!
In the upcoming year you can expect more news from us!
