Pros

The best part of the software is the overall show management functionality to it. I like that the software is geared to Rental Stagers and has the ability to integrate gear, labor, and logistics.
It is super helpful in finding shortages and helping to resolve them. Our customer rep. and the team have been fantastic to work with and talk to.
Whoever designed the feature set and overall capabilities of the system was pretty brilliant. It lets you do almost anything you can imagine to manage your business how you see fit.

Pros

Very easy to use and a great support team that helps very quickly.
I like that the serviceteam is open for changes when we ask for it, and the automation when booking. The serviceteam is quick to answer and help us through teamweaver.
I use rentman about 1,5 years and it was a good investment. Easy in use and very professional.

Cons

Our dislikes are all features. There are just so many features that it is hard to master them all.
We think you should not stop fixing bugs in the current version when the new version is largely vaporware. The new Flex 5 is being developed for Mobile and Tablet first...which is ridiculous.
Sometimes I'll scroll down a quote, open up some sections, and many times it'll either freeze for a moment or crash and start over.

Cons

Limited Space/Admins (more only with extra pay). No interaction with RFID/NFC.
Missing Economic implementation and can be a little timeconsuming/difficult to use.
No offline version or option to work offline then sync with server. You can't add items via your phone app quickly, only if item has barcode.
