Each user within your workspace can log in on their own device. You can configure permissions for each individual user, so that they can focus on their own tasks.

All essential information in one place

In Rentman you can safely store and manage the data you need to plan your rental projects. In your workspace you will find the following databases:

  • Equipment - All your equipment information can be stored in the equipment database. You can add serial numbers, QR- and Barcodes, work with accessoires, and group equipment items together in the way you use them (using kits and cases).
  • Contacts - Handle your CRM by adding your clients, contact persons and event locations. This allows you to easily find whoever you need to communicate with.
  • Crew Members - Manage the user accounts and permissions of your crew members, company staff and freelancers.
  • Vehicles - An overview of all vehicles that you need for planning transport of your equipment and crew.
  • Document storage - View and download all documents that you've generated in Rentman, such as quotations, invoices and packing lists. You can also upload extra files or images that are relevant for a project.

How does it work?

To understand how Rentman really works, it helps to understand projects.

A project is where you fit all the pieces of your planning, documents, and database information together into a rental event. This can be anything from a small-dry hire, corporate occasion, to an international tour.

In a project you manage every stage of your rentals from start to finish. From building a quote to planning crew and transport, booking equipment in- and out, handling on-site events, and sending out an invoice.

To give you an idea, here’s is how you set up a rental from start to finish.

The process: managing a project from start to finish

Below, you will find an example of a typical project workflow in Rentman.

Creating a project: building your quote

  • Set up the planning details: time schedules, client and location
  • Add the required equipment items from your database
  • Add the required jobs and transport
  • Generate and send out your quotation (and let the client digitally sign it)

Planning - equipment

  • View the availability of equipment in our visual timeline
  • Plan the equipment you need
  • Solve equipment shortages using our subhiring functionalities

Scheduling - crew and vehicles

  • Use our visual Crew Planner board to schedule crew members and vehicles

Booking equipment from your warehouse
