Now you've erased your demo data and added company information, you can get started on adding your inventory into OnRent.
🚜 Add a product
Head to products and click Add Product to begin.
You'll see the 'Add product' screen.
The name of the product. This will appear throughout the system: on paperwork, on reports, and in the main products list.
This is the unique code that applies to the product. '3TE' would be a typical code for a '3T Excavator' product for example.
The product group the product belongs to. A '3T Excavator' product belongs in the 'Excavators' product group for example. Click the blue 'Product Group' text here to create a new group.
Allowed Stock Type
Do you rent or sell this product?
What type of stock do you hold for this product?
For simple stock tracking, choose bulk. You can enter a bulk stock level and OnRent will keep track of how many you have available. For example, you have 100 x Cutting Discs.
For more advanced item tracking, choose serialised. You can add a list of assets that you rent or sell to the system and OnRent will keep track of how many you have available. For example, you have 5 x 3T Excavators with unique stock item codes.
For no stock tracking whatsoever, choose non stock. You don’t need to add a stock level and OnRent doesn’t do any stock tracking. Perfect for consumable items, packages or service charges, such as delivery or collection.
