Hardware Integration and EZRentOut
EZRentOut allows you to effectively manage your Point of Sale. It streamlines your Order Booking and Payment workflow by enabling you to add items to your orders via Barcode and QR code scanning of item labels, and allowing credit card swipe to charge payments on these orders. You can also scan invoices of already drafted orders to pull up details of items in that specific order. Here’s a host of other actions you can take in the EZRentOut Mobile App via Barcode and QR scanning.
For this to play out well, the system offers hardware integration with multiple Barcode and QR Code scanners to clock in item details into the system as soon as the code on an item is scanned during order booking, order verification etc. It also offers hardware integration with credit card readers so you can seamlessly manage payments made by your customers.
Designing Print Labels in EZRentOut
EZRentOut also allows you to design Barcode and QR code labels for your items, and print them out on Avery compatible sticky papers.
