Point of Rental has launched a mobile software solution and said that it will ensure “everyone within a rental store knows whether or not an item is ready to rent.”

Ready Tag is available on its Point of Rental One mobile app, which connects remote employees and allows companies to easily manage mobile rental processes.

The company said that with the addition of Ready Tag, the app will automatically build a queue of items requiring a post-rental inspection.

Once the list of items is compiled, staff can search and select the item they are servicing, inspect it using a built-in checklist, and document its condition. Once the item passes inspection, it will show as available in Elite, its hire software service.

John Wooten, product manager, Point of Rental, said, “Current rent-ready tags are helpful, but paper processes always have inefficiencies.

“The item’s ‘ready’ status displays in Elite so a person working the counter can see items that have been returned but have yet to be serviced. This saves a lot of radio communications, or worse, constantly going out to the wash rack to check the status.”

The company said that early adopters of the platform have been able to stop using paper tags on items on which Ready Tag is used.
