This article is meant for Rentman 3 users who are ready to activate Rentman 4G. If you did not use Rentman 3, please read this article.

If you are a Rentman 3 user, this article explains how to activate Rentman 4G.

When you activate Rentman 4G, you can still log in to Rentman 3. However, you cannot copy your new Rentman 4G database back to Rentman 3. This means that activating Rentman 4G is not reversible. Make sure you have completed our checklist and tested Rentman 4G sufficiently to know how to use it.

Use your most recent database

Before activating Rentman 4G, you need to make a final copy of your Rentman 3 database. We recommend doing this the day before you switch. This way, you will start working in Rentman 4G the next day, with the most recent version of your database.

Your database is copied overnight. You will receive an e-mail the next day, confirming a succesful copy. We recommend doing a quick manual check of your database in Rentman 4G, to ensure that there were no problems.

Read our article about copying your database for instructions.

By copying your Rentman 3 database to Rentman 4G, all data in Rentman 4G will be overwritten. This includes custom templates that you've already made in Rentman 4G in advance. However, our Support team can get these templates back for you. This means that you can still make your templates in advance.

Updated subscription packages

We have changed our subscription packages for Rentman 4G with more flexible pricing options for different business needs. The new pricing levels are similar to Rentman 3. Our Rentman Pro version includes a lot of new functionalities and therefore has a slightly higher price level for larger companies. Whether you are going to pay more or less for Rentman 4G depends on your business needs and amount of power users.

During activation, Rentman asks for confirmation of the new subscription price. The new price is also stated in your contract.
