Current RMS product overview

What is Current RMS?

Current RMS is a cloud-based rental management software designed to help businesses in the AV, broadcast, lighting, production & event sectors to manage the full rental lifecycle, from initial inquiries through to invoicing, with tools for inventory management, quote generation, customer relationship management, online quote approval, and more.

Key benefits of using Current RMS

  • Jobs can be scheduled weeks or months in advance on the built-in calendar, with automated reminders for upcoming scheduled tasks, and a full audit trail of all activities is generated automatically.

  • Barcode labels can be created to streamline the process of checking equipment in and out, and users can track the status and availability of each piece of equipment from any location or device.

  • Accessories can be created to link additional items to equipment, to ensure that mandatory components are included when planning jobs, and that sufficient accessory stock is available for each piece of equipment.

  • Services linked to jobs can also be managed, including venues, transport, and crew, with flexible charging options by duration or distance, availability management, and drag-and-drop resource allocation.

  • Custom proposals and quotes can be generated using built-in document templates, with drag-and-drop editing and the option to share documents online with clients, who can download, view, comment on, and accept or decline the quotation through a unique URL.

    Pros
    Rock solid system which gets good and rapid support and upgrades. Great team who listen and care about their customers.

    The inventory tracking is great. And the portability of the software being in the cloud is just awesome.

    Aaron C.

    Current RMS is terrific rental software that is practical, easy to use and looks great. Customer service is second to none with free initial training (not that it's needed).

    Cons
    It really seems badly designed on purpose. Maybe if you move from using a whiteboard based rental system this could seem revolutionary but it's just not.

    JL

    James L.

    A bit of a learning curve. Having to go to separate pages is annoying at times.

    No you're going to spend hours on these quotes navigating around the site adding all three to the separate lists, then link them.

    Current is the extra person we can actually afford...

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    Current has totally revolutionised our business and been with us right from starting as a one man business all the way to where we are now. I always get asked, is this software just for big businesses OR is this business just for small businesses. Truth is Current RMS is both, and everything in between. I strongly believe that Current has enabled us to grow from a small business to a larger business...

    Pros

    This software is absolutely sensational. It looks good, it operates even better, it's cloud based, integrates straight with our accounting package, AND the creators are forever after your feedback to improve the package. Unlike most provider's they actually listen to what the consumer wants and then they deliver it. Never have I found a software package that makes me actually enjoy managing a business, until now.

    Cons

    Every time I find a con, shortly after Current RMS brings out an update that fixes the con. So I'm going to leave this box blank, because If I fill it, chances are by next week it will be irrelevant!

    Ever evolving software solution.

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Current is a great product that has been working really well for us. Since we started with Current over 2 years ago we have seen it evolve. As a result of this when a new feature is released it needs to be managed within your organisation as some will use it in a different way than you might. Any process you may have developed before any new feature release that carries out the same function may need to have its migration managed. It is a moving feast and as such needs to be managed for this reason only I give it 4 for ease of use.

    Pros

    Cloud based and evolving. Excellent Support.

    Cons

    Because it evolves your processes need to as well. Sometimes there is just not the time to do this and it can lead to different work practices within the organisation.

    Vendor response

    Hi Mark, Thanks for your review and advice - we love the title, Current is indeed ever evolving. A lot has been added into Current since launch back in September 2014, which is close to when you came onboard. However all new features added into Current are carefully considered so that they don't disrupt existing processes if companies are not ready to take advantage of new updates. As we appreciate...

    Slow interface and drawn out procedures for simple tasks - 8 months in, looking for alternative

    Reviewed 5 years ago

    I can't believe the other people posting here are talking about the same product. The interface and everything about the operation of the software is slow. Imagine you take three phones from potential new customers who want relatively simple quotes for a 3-5 items and a technician. Think they're getting them quickly? No way. You can't fill in a quote form with new details adding to client...

    Pros

    Better than a whiteboard. Maybe.

    Cons

    I hate that lists can only have a handful of entries (like 5) because for each entry Current like to have big icons that take up space that could be used to add two more entries. Want to search current quotes, think 5 per page and clicking very slowly through each page.

    Vendor response

    Hi James, Sorry to hear how frustrated you are with Current RMS right now, we have contacted you personally to go through your feedback. Many of the points you have raised regarding functionality are achievable and we would love the opportunity to show you this. All training is part of the package. Look forward to speaking to you soon. Current RMS

    After months of researching and trailing different products RMS ticks EVERY BOX!

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Better customer service, Staff time savings, More efficient use of staff time,

    Pros

    I love the ease of use of Current RMS, I was worried that cloud based software and rural Yorkshire internet just wouldn't mix but the responsiveness is as if the software is hosted on the machine I'm using. Every time a new update is released it ticks boxes that I didn't even have. The discussions feature is great, I'd happily pay £35/month for a email client that shows when recipients have read my emails and that is included with RMS!

    Cons

    I'd love to have an iOS app, I appreciate that the mobile version of the standard web GUI is available but it is a bit clunky on iOS (even on a plus sized phone). The wish list is great but now it is to over 500 wishes it is getting a little out of hand, many repeat requests (each with maybe 20 votes but potentially 100 across the 5 requests?) Perhaps the wishlist should send out an email every week/month of 'new ideas' which may prompt users with spare votes to vote on an idea that they didn't even think was missing?

    Vendor response

    Hi Will, Thanks for the fantastic review, delighted to hear the system is ticking all the right boxes for you. I'm pleased to let you know that a native app for Current RMS is on the Wishlist as we appreciate areas of the system may not be as easy to view on a mobile device, even if this is fully responsive. In regards to the amount of requests on the Wishlist, we frequently try to clean...

    Our whole process has been greatly streamlined by this great bit of software

    Reviewed 3 years ago
    Pros

    SO easy to use - very little training required Easily customisable to suit most of our needs Great customer service (we had one glitch where one of the developers spent about three weeks working on something for us but then swore blind it couldn't be done - then spoke to someone else who had it fixed exactly how we needed and took him only 5 minutes!) New features constantly added - forever evolving for the better Asset tracking and management is a breeze They attend all the industry shows so it's always easy to meet face-to-face to discuss things - everyone is so friendly - you feel like you are dealing with people who properly understand your needs

    Cons

    These are only very minor points and should in no way detract from how great this software is: Some features take a lot longer to materialise than others - the reason for this is completely understandable but that doesn't make it any less annoying Data import/export is a bit clunky - it would be great to be able to make edits to databases without having to download them and upload them Access/permission levels are set by user level and not individually by login Outlook integration could be better

    Vendor response

    Thanks for your brilliant review Jonathan and great to hear you're enjoying the new updates we've been working hard on. We look forward to catching up at Plasa London later this year :-)
