Traditional and RFID
RentControl provides extensive barcode support to make keeping track of inventory, selecting equipment for a rental or sale, and checking equipment in after a rental much quicker and less error-prone.
If you barcode the items in your inventory, you can scan the barcodes when attaching items to a rental, and when checking items in after a rental is complete.
RentControl supports two kinds of scanners from a variety of manufacturers:
A hand-held scanner saves time and promotes accuracy. You can create an order by simply scanning the barcodes of the items being rented. If the items are not within reach of the scanner, RentControl can produce a printed copy of your inventory with barcodes so you have the barcodes to scan. When an order is returned, you merely scan the items that came back. RentControl checks them in and lets you know if any are missing or any didn't belong to the order. You can also use a hand-held scanner to tag inventory items or reconcile inventory making both processes quick and accurate.
RFID UHF Readers like TSL's 1128 can read multiple tags at a time from a fairly generous distance and a decently wide area. The 1128 uses BlueTooth technology, which comes standard on many of the new PCs and tablets. But if the machine doesn't support BlueTooth natively, dongles are very inexpensive ways of providing BlueTooth access. RFID technology is especially useful when tags are not easy to see or when lots of tags are jumbled together.
RentControl has built-in facilities for working with RFID-tagged items:
RentControl's price is based on the number of simultaneous users, and is sold as a permanent license, meaning that there is no requirement to pay a lease fee each year. Free support is included with your purchase price for the first year and includes help by phone or email as well as new versions of RentControl.
