The Warehouse module provides an overview of the equipment that needs to be prepared, is coming back, or should have returned already. Equipment can be booked per project and scanned to carry different statuses so that it's clear where the equipment currently is.
Crew can directly add alternatives, additional equipment, notes, or report lost and defective equipment (based on their user rights).
Overview of the module
To access the Warehouse module follow the steps from the video below:
Equipment status in the Warehouse module
In the Warehouse module, equipment can have four statuses. Follow this page to learn more about each status and how to use them.
Each project has a set status to show what stage the project is in. It's good to know that equipment status and project status can be different. You can read more about project status on this page.
Custom statuses in the warehouse
Depending on your workflow, customizing your warehouse statuses can help you keep better track of where your equipment is and what needs to be done next. Whether your equipment is in transit or a cleaning and check-up follows, you can create a warehouse status to match your inventory handling processes.
Booking and scanning equipment
By booking equipment to a specific status, everyone in the warehouse knows what needs to happen with equipment items (or sets) and where they currently are located. Additionally, particular details about equipment (broken items, alternatives for planned items, notes) can be directly reported.
It is, however, not mandatory to book equipment in Rentman. The equipment stock is based on the equipment planning, rather than the equipment booking.
Cross-docking speeds up equipment preparation for various projects by swiftly transferring and loading it between different transport modes, such as trucks, semi-trailers, and railroad cars. This minimizes handling and storage time as specific equipment doesn't need to be stored.
