It streamlines our business. It makes tracking, maintaining and managing our inventory easy. It also improves our corporate image and streamlines our customer communications. Lastly, it holds everyone working in the warehouse responsible for their work and accuracy of orders by tracking their scans.

Flex has so much potential yet the basic core functionally of the program is not being focused on.

I've used Flex with 2 different companies and have managed the system for both of those companies. The features and functionality can't be beat for the price. It's extremely easy to start using the basic functions and also offers more extensive functionality for the companies that choose to implement them. At it's core, Flex is a rental inventory management software, but it's workflow includes financial functionality too keeping your from bouncing between multiple softwares. Quotes, Invoices, PO's, Pull Sheets, Manifests, Cross-rental PO's, Crew Lists, etc. are all linked together per job handing off information for less time doing data entry. Scanning is simple and extremely easy to begin utilizing as a company. Some of the other functions Flex offers includes maintenance logs, ROI reporting, contact management, QuickBooks integration, file management, sales forecasting, decommissioning, containers (items inside of items), barcode generation, and more.

Flex has a large amount of features and functionality, but there can be a bit of a learning curve.

We are able to effectively track our inventory of production gear: as well as generate quotes, orders, and calendar our events. There are plenty of things that Flex can do that outside of this. As we have developed and grown as a company, we've been able to lean more into Flex's functionality. We are excited to see it develop and hopefully continue to track with us as we grow.
