    Pros

    The integration of invoicing and inventory management is the best of the software we have used, and the customization of document templates allows us to provide our clients with professional documents with exactly the right amount of information.

    Cons

    There are some features that need work on kit and case building but with that said the rentman team are continually listening to the end user and implementing requests.

    Rentman helps me make things more efficient by saving time on resource planning, equipment management and sales. A real "multitool" for an Event production company.

    Pros

    Overall logic on the software is very fluent and easy to follow. I never read much of the tips and tricks section, but after couple of hours use I was able to figure out the key functions. I like the amount of time it saves me in quotations and planning for resources.

    Especially I like the Crew Planner.. That helps a lot when booking people to gigs. Our freelancers are also happy with the Rentman App for phone.

    Web based service is also a very good thing for smaller business when the need for own server base and maintenance is eliminated.

    Cons

    I tried to think this quite a lot, actually. The only thing that really bugs me is the section of documents which takes in data from tabs (customer name, location, project number..)

    For me, and probably many other, who do not understand that much about coding,(think the section is using css?) that there would be a simpler way to edit the general data of the document.
    I also happen to know that what I just wrote, corrupts the very idea for the software to fetch the data on the section automatically.

    Document templates are a bit annoying to get "just right", but well worth it in the long run.

    One does need a specialist within the organization who is very "into" the software and wants to learn more, and train others, in order to make things run smoothly. It is not that simple, for most of the users.

    Voordeel hiervan is dat zonder te hoeven mailen bij veranderingen, alles direct duidelijk is bij mijn collega's. Waardoor er minder gemaild of overlegd hoeft te worden. Teams die in de buitendienst zitten kunnen de informatie, die belangrijk is, makkelijk terugvinden in de app of op de uit te draaien werkorders.

    Pros

    - makkelijk in gebruik
    - overzichtelijk
    - duidelijkheid in 1 oogopslag

    Cons

    - ben niets tegen gekomen. Ik en mijn team zouden juist nog meer gebruik moeten gaan maken van de verschillende features om echt het meeste uit deze software te halen.

    confusing user interface

    Reviewed on 2017/07/31

    Pros

    Nice functions, online based, electronic signature at offers, easy to create invoices without project,

    Cons

    settings are often not individual adjustable like First Day of Work in hours counter for new employes or national holidays. Its not possible to set a sabbatical for a employee in the hours counter
    Creating forms is very difficult.
    Finding Projects by name is very complicated

    Response from Rentman

    Hey Josephine, thanks a lot for taking the time to review Rentman and your honest feedback. We are sorry to hear that some functions of Rentman are not clear to you yet. It would be great if you could let us know what parts of the interface are confusing for you as we just recently updated the whole interface to fit even better with the workflow of event and production rental companies.

    Our intention is to keep the options for staff administration understandable and easy-to-use for everyone. To ensure we offer an intuitive product for all users, we choose not to focus on workforce administration after time registration. Instead we aim to optimize Rentman so that it can be seamlessly used with dedicated staff administration software.

    Also, please remember that free support and training are included in every Rentman package. Give us a call when you need help setting up forms so that one of our support experts can guide you through it. Thanks again!

    We have been able to integrate all projects automatically into one calendar for all our crew to view, so that there isn't a constant string of calls and texts confirming times for the following day.
    They are able to look ahead and plan their weeks, as well as repair any equipment with urgency that is going out again soon.
    We have also had only brilliant experiences with the Rentman support team, with quick responses to questions, and ideas for future updates being passed onto developers, with actual reasons for use.

    Pros

    Rentman is an ideal choice for Crew, Project and Equipment management software. We implemented it over the space of approximately two months, and all staff were able to easily jump on board an start using it daily. We are able to track all our projects and clients, where our equipment is, as well as logging our crew's timesheets. We implemented this coming from no other software, simply all manual, which resulted in the reliance of 3rd party calendar apps, that didn't sync easily.
    Now that we have started using Rentman, we couldn't imagine doing business without it.

    Cons

    There really aren't many negatives about Rentman. The only negative I have is the UI on mobile devices, but that's fairly prevalent in most management softwares, as there is a lot of data needing to be displayed on the screen at one time.
