Booqable Feature Reviews

Keith Steele

Feels like it was made for me

2018-06-28

Rental inventory management, tracking and online rental portal administration

Pros

Booqable was straightforward to set up and flexible enough to cover most of our needs - the trial period was generous enough for me to learn my way around the interface and get most of my inventory entered, so I effectively didn't even pay for Booqable until after I started making money with it.

Cons

That being said, the team at Booqable is very easy to communicate with and have tipped me off that the last couple features I need are being worked on right now, so hopefully soon I can update this review to reflect that.

Booqable is a great way to manage the rental of your products. Planning, invoicing, communication.

2018-07-03

I can react fast and accurate to clients asking for quotes, availability and costs.

Pros

- Easy and fast planning of rentals - Possibility to quote, invoice and remind - integration with website to let clients self book

Cons

-Would be nice to be able to customize the online shop further -Lay-out/design of pdf's (invoices/ quotes) could be better.

Essential for our cinema equipment rental departement

2018-07-05

Time savings, better overview of inventory as well as book keeping.

Pros

Very nice interface, simple and yet feature packed.

Cons

Could have some more features when it comes to invoices, for instance integration with Fortnox/Billogram but that's just a small thing in the big picture.

We are going to have full vision of exactly where our unique items are and be able to track whose used it when and generate some really awesome reports

Pros

Not only did the guys at Booqable answer every question i had in detail they made a custom go around so i could update all of the products i already had on my squarespace website with the Booqable inventory management and payments system.

Cons

Have not run into any cons yet i reviewed several other similar softwares and they all came out being priced way way higher or lacked serious features/support

Thanks so much for the review Sy! Glad to hear getting started with Booqable was easy. It's no problem to use Stripe for payment requests. Our support team's happy to show you how. In the meantime, this article might also help: https://bit.ly/2NvLQY5

Booqable has transformed how we track our rental inventory.

2018-07-03

accurate inventory tracking of everything going in and out.

Pros

I love that it is cloud based, so we can access it from anywhere, and is an accurate way for us to book our inventory in and out.

Cons

Also, we need it to do more reporting.

Just the equipment management software I've been dreaming of

2017-10-31

Time savings and management. Simple as that.

Pros

On top of that, it's integrated with quoting and invoicing.

Cons

One of things I brought up was to have the calendar subscription for iCal or Google Calendar show not only the Reserved items, but also what items are Concepts.

Regarding the calendar; we just released an update that should make it a lot easier to see the status of your orders on the go.
Hope that helps! Cheers!

Our staff loves Booqable

2018-07-19

Management oversight has increased in daily activities which allows us to constantly review and adjust stock & processes to better serve our customers.

Pros

Booqable is user-friendly, was easy to implement with our website and has allowed us to grow our rental business exponentially all while simplifying the day-to-day workflow processes.

Cons

The checkout process needs to collect 50% of total without taxes. We have had an issue getting it to work.

Helpful Beyond Belief!

2018-10-07

Booqable has quickly and easily helped us better know our numbers, track item history, take security deposits, made pulling and returning items easier and faster, and given our clients more peace of mind having photos next to the line item and specific quantity of what they'll be receiving.

Pros

Now we don't have to manually track each individual item in our inventory on a spreadsheet!

Cons

I would also like to be able to switch items between tracking individual items in a category or bulk items.

Useful tool for managing inventory stock

2018-07-05

It's provided us with the ability to managed our inventory levels over a hundreds of SKUs, required for hundreds of bookings throughout the year.

Pros

We use this for our hire stock and it provides a clear view on what stock is available at any given date range.

Cons

We'd prefer to be able to send our clients contracts for them to sign through the tool.

Great Product for a Great Price!

2018-11-08

I liked the product enough to subscribe after testing it out for almost a month.

Pros

This software allows for pictures to be uploaded and inventory can be added from an existing excel doc.

Cons

I thought the trial offer dashboard was crowded and not very intuitive.

Nothing comes close.

2018-09-25

Surprisingly customizable, and works so well.

Pros

- Zapier Integration (nobody else has this, and it's a game changer) - Wordpress embed ability - Online store integration - Email response integration - Price - Great customer support - Fast, responsive, reliable, clean

Cons

- Lack of bulk product modifications once uploaded - Custom fields can't be Zapped (I realise this could be a bit tricky to make happen) - No auto-redirection on checkout completion (to help with conversion tracking for Adwords/Facebook etc)

Incomplete

2018-10-17

I am in Canada. Booqable is in the Netherlands. If you are not online with them by 10am, it is the end of the day for them and you wait for the next day. I asked about this and was told it was a small team and be patient. Some chat inquiries, even during the normal business hours for them, can take a hours to get a reply. It seems to me that they either have too few people for the business they have, or there are too many issues with the app and everyone needs support all the time. In the end, after months of work, I had to cancel and start again with another app.

Pros

The online booking and payment capture is slick and simple.

Cons

Then it went live, and only then (3 months of work) did I learn that the client interface is incomplete, and does not work.

Simple, powerful rental software with fantastic customer service.

2018-07-05

Pros

Several other services we trialled required integration with 3rd party accounting software to do this.

Cons

I'd also love to see some way of managing labour within the system (such as deliveries or, for us, event technicians) that is reflected in the calendar. Lastly a companion smartphone app would be amazing (Booqable is designed to work on desktops or tablets).

High quality software for an amazing price, great customer service.

2018-08-21

After only using for a couple weeks so far, this has saved a lot of time for booking/managing our rental orders. Definitively expected for the eCommerce capabilities.

Pros

Very well designed. Always available customer service, and the company just seems very friendly and helpful.

Cons

Wishing it would be easier to use on mobile, for quick on-the-go orders that come in while out of office.

Great Product, Excited for Future Updates

2018-07-17

This product helped us create a customer friendly, web based rental platform.

Pros

The ability to have different pricing structure is great, tags make it simple to search for products, and customer tags will allow us to assign discounts and track when those discounts expire.

Cons

Things that could be improved: Additional payment gateways.

Booqable 30 day Trial

2018-09-10

Pros

Also love that it auto populates a picture of your product when you are adding it to your inventory.

Cons

Possibly a little TOO simplistic...but I don't feel I can say that for sure yet as I'm still digging into all of it's features...really nothing I don't like yet.

Great services

2018-06-27

Make money

Pros

Simple to use, its affordable and well though. I like the GUI of the backend [not the front end result front page shopping card], I'm a great fan because this software in the cloud is opening great opportunities for both the developers/founder of booqable and the users.

Cons

No IDEAL payment gateway, the design is to simple, we should be able to just integrated [extra fee] a premade theme page for the shop.

Great, basic rental software

2018-10-04

It's a great product for the simple process we are working to implement. We are using it to help resource events our church has. I would totally recommend it to anyone who asks me.

Pros

For us, we are trying to manage a production inventory at our church, so allowing ministries to select what they need online, it generates a pull sheet, with all relevant data, and we make it happen.

Cons

It's still pretty basic. It doesn't allow for us to divide things into sections (AUDIO, VIDEO, LIGHTING). It also doesn't do packages that reference existing products, like a Sound system package that includes all the cables and speakers. There are work arounds that are having it work for us, but those features would be awesome.

Cons

It doesn't have easy-to-use interfaces or plugins with my point of sale or website systems.

Love this company!

2018-09-14

Having clients being able to put in their dates of their event and having the software being able to tell them what's available is amazing.

Pros

To find a software that works so well with my website and is specially designed for rentals is amazing.

Cons

To continue using my website design I had to copy the code for each product into the code session on my main website product list.
