An Overview of the Odoo 16 Rental Module


For enterprises and organizations, Odoo 16's Rental Module offers a complete rental management solution. Users can manage each element of their rental items because of their abstract perspective of goods and services. Additionally, the module simplifies data entry, enabling quicker transactions and ideas for growth. To prevent conflicts between rentals, the rental module provides scheduling choices for different occupations, keeps track of staff activities, and organizes return policies and product availability. Additionally, it interfaces with the inventory app, making it simple to manage products based on serial numbers.

In order to regulate product availability based on serial numbers, Odoo Rental interfaces with the inventory app. This enables managers to find items or find substitutes if they run out of stock. Customers can use online payment and payment providers to complete transactions, and they are given an electronic signature to accept the terms and conditions of the business. More user-friendly and customer-friendly features are included in the new version of the Rental Module, including rental periods, online rental (Rental + eCommerce), and simple cross-selling and upselling of rental items. Users may set up unavailability dates and offer rental goods together with engaging blog material. Overall, the Rental Module is an effective instrument for controlling the needs of the rental industry and raising client satisfaction.
