VimBiz Broadcast Enterprise Asset Management RentalsRentals

In the broadcasting and media world, rental operations involve a very broad range of workflows. There are equipment check-in and check-out processes, of course, but there also unplanned rentals where someone shows up at a counter. There are rental kits to manage, as well as policies and rates. Often stockroom items need to go out with a booking. There can be different rental facilities involved, preparation periods, multiple check-outs on the same rental, and split invoicing. The VimBiz Rentals module enables powerful rentals flexibility whether you’re managing student camera kit check-outs, A/V rental houses, a public broadcaster tech store, or a fleet of mobile trucks providing onsite broadcasting services for major sports, entertainment, and political events. A big reason for the power of this module is its integration with the Catalog, Assets, Stockrooms, Service, and Scheduling modules. What else does VimBiz Rentals provide?
  • Ultimate flexibility - rent specifically identified assets and even lock them down, or specify any unit of a given model and resolve upon check-out

  • Barcode and RFID compatibility - book, check out, and check in rental items and kits using the speed and accuracy of barcode and/or RFID technology
