About Rental Essentials

Rental Essentials is a cloud-based rental software that allows a rental business to get their equipment set up in the system within days or even hours.

While server-based rental software systems provide substantial benefits for rental businesses, a smaller or new business often doesn’t have the money to invest in the IT infrastructure required to operate the most robust management systems. Rental Essentials provides a cloud-based option that requires just simple information about your business to get started on a 14-day free trial.

Rental Essentials includes features like Web Storefront, the first e-commerce rental website that links to back-end inventory management. A 2016 innovation was its Kiosk function, which allows customers to check in with their information onsite, facilitating faster contract entry. When combined with Essentials' mobile app and its quick scan in/out features, it's possible to enter a new customer into the system, enter equipment onto a contract, take payments, and get a contract signed, all without having to return to the register.

The Rental Essentials app doesn’t stop working in the office, however. It includes delivery tracking, so drivers can report deliveries and pickups from the road, even adding condition photos to reduce damage disputes.

Based on agile technology and incorporating six-week "sprint" development cycles, Rental Essentials keeps its users ahead of the competition in straightforward rental.
