The need for rental asset labels
Most rentals inventories have a large number of products in order to cater to surging or unpredictable demand. These sizable product lines can make business optimization a difficult task.
Maybe you’re trying to decide which rentals need maintenance. Looking through your logs, you realize no one properly filed the rentals returned from servicing last week against their proper IDs. With more products under your belt, managing items becomes much more complicated. You introduce vulnerabilities into your system and end up with inefficient processes.
There really is no excuse for putting up with lost items, wasted time, and unreliable reporting. This is why any and all rental companies should be looking into better inventory management processes. So, how can this be fixed? Continue reading

Rental companies often deal with monthly durations differently. While some run contracts according to actual calendar months, others count a fixed number of days in each month. For example, monthly contracts for some companies last 28 days irrespective of the calendar month.
EZRentOut caters to companies of all sizes, from small businesses to big retail houses. As these businesses grow, customers, employees, and departments increase as well. There is a need to enforce group-based access control to better manage asset visibility and utilization within the organization. There can be two ways to achieve this:
- Have separate accounts: Create separate accounts when each department and its employees are independent, or when you have multiple stores and its customers have different buying habits. For every account, you can have different policy settings and run independent reports. This works well when there is no sharing of items or employees across departments, or regions when retail companies are involved.
- Utilize Multi-Store Listings feature: This feature allows management of departments, multiple stores, and divisions from a single EZRentOut account. Keeping a single account enables aggregate reporting and a single consistent setting across all departments and stores.
If you’re interested in utilizing this feature, go to Settings → Company Settings → Policy → Enable Multistore Settings. Now save your settings. This will allow you to create item listings available for different customers and users. Continue reading
