Product update: Better multi-location support and new payment methods

The work continues and the team has been making Rentle more versatile and efficient with the latest product update. Let’s see what our product development deployed in April.

Admin UI improvements

We have added quick links to the New Booking and Bookings views, making it faster to navigate between the most used pages on Rentle. Furthermore, a black status toolbar, currently showing the online/offline status and time is a new addition. The toolbar is visible when Rentle is in full-screen mode.


Improved multi-location support 

With the addition of multi-location support, you can now manage products’ availabilities depending on their location. This enables hiding and showing products in only certain shop locations.

After the update, product availabilities are calculated according to the location-specific inventories instead of the total number of equipment spread out in multiple locations. This enables having a faster and more real-time image of available products in each one of your shop locations. 

Longer maintenance times 

One of the updates includes the ability to change the maintenance times between rentals before the product becomes automatically available for new reservations.

Increasing buffer time allows more flexibility and time to check the condition of the equipment and for example, disinfect it before the next customer.

Payment methods: in-store and online 

We have added an option for the shops to choose, how they want to receive online bookings: prepaid, non-paid, or both by letting the customer decide. Shops can determine whether they want to accept only paid online bookings or allow customers to pay upon pick-up.

Five new languages

Rentle’s customer interfaces are now available in 12 languages! With the latest addition of French, Spanish, Norwegian, Hungarian, and Italian to the customer interfaces, you can now provide service to a broader range of customers in their mother tongue.
