Pros: We really like the online access and the ability to keep all information relating to jobs with the job for all staff to access. It's great for information access for meetings or the jobs themselves. It's great fro scheduling our team and also keeping track of equipment in multiple locations. All in all it's been a good asset since we moved from our previous software.

Cons: There are some limitations with formatting of the emails and also some limitations with reporting. This doesn't outweigh the benefits by any stretch though.

Pros: The fact it makes us more efficient in the warehouse and the prepping and shipping of new work. The system also allows you to see not only your equipment but your staff and vehicles whereabouts too this enables us to plan efficiently for future work

Cons: No internet no system this can cause an issue of working on the cloud however touch wood it hasn¿t happened yet :-)

Overall: It¿s brilliant for making a business efficient and smooth in running

Pros: Easy to set up from scratch and easy to adapt as you go
Ability to easily customise and set up your own fields in any area of the system
Easy to use & quick to learn
Pictorial layout makes sense & looks great
CRM & Project integration (Invoicing too but we don't use that feature...yet)
Speedy response from technical support
Crewing and logistics workflow
Ability to access anywhere, anytime from any device
Responsive to new ideas and no user hassle to download/update as it is all done for you
Linking calendars to mobile devices/other computers/Outlook
Ability to download custom views as a csv file
Ability to hand on heart recommend it to other people/companies
Overall a great product in fairly early stages of life and is improved upon regularly. The support I had during set up was fantastic and some major improvements to the calendar was taken into account and implemented making it much more user friendly (in my opinion). Support is much more responsive than our previous software company and generally its a positive outcome too! The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars across the board is that there always ways to improve and for the few cons as below.

Cons: A few well thought out ideas and well supported items on the wishlist that have been on for a long time with no sign of implementation - e.g. moving oustanding items to an existing Opportunity - email templates - choosing optional accessories - Do a deal button
Better Outlook integration would be nice
No option to choose who can see custom views - only ability to do this at User Role level, not individual User level
No way of customising the main Dashboard
No real stock check routine

Overall: Our main benefits are time saving and having everything in one place when previously it was spread across 3 or 4 different packages is fantastic.
Having the ability to access easily makes remote working a lot easier, no need for VPN connections back to the office.

Hey Bryan, Thanks for the review and feedback for other companies looking at a new rental management solution. Pleased to say that all the features you've mentioned on the Wishlist are high up on our development roadmap. We are continuously working hard to ensure we are delivering the most popular, requested for features but to excellent standard and look forward to releasing these to all of our customer base in due course. Many thanks Current RMS

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?

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

Vendor Response

by Current RMS on July 12, 2017

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 this up in the way of merging the same/similar ideas together but it's been very active recently so taking the time to do this again is high up on our list and hope to get round to this very soon. We really like the proactive idea of sending out a monthly email informing users of recent ideas added to the Wishlist. We're going to have a chat about how we can introduce this to our processes next week - great idea! Thanks again for your time reviewing Current, speak soon.

Pros: The best part of Current is that it is nearly a complete business solution.
It integrates seamlessly with xero.
The inventory tracking is great. and the portability of the software being in the cloud is just awesome.

Cons: There is literally no deal breakers here. and there system for improvement requests is really good.
Some sort of PAT testing module which tracks when things need to be retested would be very handy.

Vendor Response

by Current RMS on July 11, 2017

Thanks for your brilliant review Aaron and great to hear how Current is managing the growth of your business. A PAT testing module is certainly in the pipeline, as it's gaining more and more votes. We have an array of new features we're looking to implement soon, so I can't give you an exact date for when we'll start building the testing and maintenance feature, however I'll make a note to contact you as soon as we know more. In the meantime, we do have an open API, so you can look into integrating this with a PAT testing system if it's something you need sooner rather than later. Thanks again

Pros: Flexible and customisable, the system is relatively easy to use . I like age addition of pictures for all equipment and pricing structures.

Cons: Lacking in clear instructions on some of the features, integration with 3rd party crm non existent. Template. Reaction is not automated and takes quite a while for the staff at current to build your templates

Overall: Solved our core need for a rental system

Vendor Response

by Current RMS on July 11, 2017

Hi Chris, thanks for your feedback on the different areas of Current. In regards to instructions on new features, someone will be in touch shortly to find out whether you're referring to the update messages we send out, or our guides. If it's our guides, we're currently updating these throughout the system. The Discussion template feature is going to be released very shortly. Although we send automated email reminders regarding invoices, we are also looking at the option for customers to reactivate their own system if this cancels due to, for example expiring cards. Lastly, we are also working on the timescale of our free document layout customisation service by putting better processes in place and growing the team so that we can look to increase our turn around time but still ensure the customised layouts we complete are to good standard. However, in busy periods, the turn around time may increase but we try to set expectations upon receiving the first request. Thanks

Pros: it is meeting the needs of our hire business and RMS have a dedication to the product development and interested in how it works for us. If you believe in your product and your customers and actively support both you cant lose. your response to our needs is personal and quick .. you rock

Cons: we need changes to how the software works and changes only occur if you think thats what everyone wants and will only develop on that basis. we know what we need and our ideas are intellectual property development from us for free. we need recognition of our contribution where functionality will increase the value of your product. we are effectively your partners in business adding value to your delivered product. we need change and growth in functionality our ideas will benefit everybody, make change happen quicker.

Overall: not enough

Vendor Response

by Current RMS on July 11, 2017

Hi Sean, Thanks for your review, we are keen to have a chat with you about the changes you are looking for so we'll be contacting you shortly. The Customer Wishlist is the main source for our development roadmap as it enables us to gather feedback from over 3,000 users worldwide in one central location. However, we are always happy and keen to listen to personal, one on one feedback from our customers. If there's an idea which we feel would benefit all users and wouldn't take up too much development time or steer us away from other major, key features we plan to release then we'd consider the change. We really do appreciate all the voluntary feedback put forward by industry experts so we can ensure we are building the right features, in the right way for our users. Continuously working as hard as possible to ensure we are updating the system to customer requirement whilst staying true to the design and ease of use of Current - keeping it affordable and flexible. Thanks

Pros: We love the design of the product with it's modern interface. It does the job well (probably like other systems) but it just seems more user friendly and more attractive to use.

Cons: There is not much that we don't like. If I had to pick something, it would be to improve the speed at which we can enter order lines.

Overall: We were in need of changing our system so reviewed various until we came across Current RMS with Xero integration. We now have a system that allows us to quote, book orders, manage and report stock availability, check out and in orders and manage losses. Integration with Xero allows us to seamlessly create invoices from the orders and post to Xero (now our accounts system), take payments, invoice for losses and complete the rental cycle all from any device at any time. We have improved efficiency of our operation and confidence when taking orders and quoting. The application's dashboard summarises the day's activities which for us is invaluable. Current RMS have the best support team with an application interface that is a breath of fresh air. We love using it!

Recommendations to other buyers: The application is very easy to set up and the Current RMS team are at hand if you need help. Once set up, it needs very little training in order to get up and running.

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.

Overall: 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.

Recommendations to other buyers: The system requires change management and this needs to be known to all.

Vendor Response

by Current RMS on April 05, 2017

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 every business experiences different demands. I hope we were able to provide you with some useful guidance on the telephone today regarding further streamlining processes across the team, ensuring everyone is working in the same manner. Using Recent Actions and Recent Documents within Current is really beneficial as you can check to ensure everyone is working in the same way. Also, please remember all support and training is part of the package so if you decide to change a process or need to provide training on new features, we're here to help with that. Many thanks

Pros: You can see the week or month at a glance.
Posting to XERO is painless.

Cons: I would like see the sales pipeline for each month available so you can see confirmed orders at a glance for the month

Overall: I dry ran 2 other programs. I didn't dry run RMS for very long as it was so visual. If you don't understand something the staff at RMS will ease the pain. If you have staff who hate change then this is the one of the best solutions as it keeps them away from the accounting hassles as well. XERO plugin works well for accountancy purposes only. XERO doesn't do subtotals, and they don't care, so you won't see any of that come across or the descriptions from RMS. Just send all invoices from RMS and statements from XERO and it soon looks like one program.

Vendor Response

by Current RMS on July 11, 2017

Hey Noel, Thanks for the great review,it's massively appreciated. So glad to see how streamlined you're finding the integration between Current and Xero. In terms of having the sales pipeline for each month readily available in order to see confirmed orders, you can do this via custom views and set it to show orders within a certain month. It would just look slightly different to how it's set out in the dashboard. I hope this help, thanks.

Pros: User friendly, clean look and approach.

Cons: Wish the ideas that have green light on the wish list or planned would get released quicker as many are important functionalities.

Overall: We were looking for software that had great off the shelve functionality that could also allow us to customize in the future if needed. This was 6 months ago, now not only do we have the system to where we want it, being so easy to use we have customized it to automate a whole manor of previous manual tasks such as automated run sheets, bespoke proposals, power consumption calculations, costing automation. Not only this but the wish list system is a great idea and we can see what ideas are in the pipeline for development and progress on ideas that have had the green light. Updates to the system are frequent meaning that functionality is always improving. Love it....

Finally, customer service is impeccable. I have been taught so much but the RMS guys through the web chat. I have pretty much learnt the basis of liquid syntax thanks to them. Response time is always amazing.

Pros: Flexibility, constant updating and improvements.

Cons: Lacking a couple of core feature sets (overall job pricing, test and tag) that most other platforms support.

Overall: I moved my small rental business to current from a much older legacy platform that required me to maintain a local server. Cloud access was not an option. Having moved to current, I can now maintain my assets much better, and with the new API I have been able to create custom tools to further improve my workflow.

Hey Gerard, thanks so much for taking the time to review Current. In terms of the "overall job pricing" - I wonder whether you're referring to the following idea on our Wishlist: https://goo.gl/zXXQXB ...If so, this idea is currently in planning stages, and is in the pipeline to be released in the not so distant future. Also, in terms of testing (which I assume is PAT testing), we will be more than happy to share a document on how to use custom fields to store the info. We'll send you over an email shortly with a bit more information.

The most modern, flexible solution by far.

Overall: An absolutely brilliant product! We really don't have enough good things to say about it. Coming from the old finicky locally hosted hire tracking system that was industry standard for a while and having tried other modern web-based solutions, we have settled in with Current and their team and have absolutely no intentions of going anywhere else. The flow of the system is fresh and takes into account the flow of how companies in our industry operate these days, blowing the other offerings out of the water. In addition, the staff at Current could not be more helpful. We absolutely love the quick turnaround time for questions and the helpful, friendly responses from their incredibly knowledgeable staff members. The ability to suggest new features and see them implemented throughout the system is also huge. If you are in the market for a new hire system, I strongly recommend checking out Current RMS. Drop them a line and get a personal demonstration of the system. You won't be disappointed!

Pros: The value is incredible. You get a lot of flexibility and they are constantly updating and listening to feedback from their customers.

Cons: Like any new software it takes a little getting use to. It's kind of like learning a new language and you just have to figure out the right way to set something up or do something, but they offer great support articles and have a good community forum, plus their customer service is very speedy with any questions.

Overall: We have been using Current-RMS for over a year now and it has really improved our speed, organization and peace of mind. We are a small production company that owns our own equipment so we live in a little bit different realm than most but it has helped us tremendously nonetheless. After entering everything into the system, Current-RMS has greatly sped up our check-in and check-out process and has made managing multiple shoots very easy.

Comments: After years (years!) of researching and being disappointed by many other rental management tools on the market, finding Current RMS felt like a breath of fresh air. Current RMS is a modern, beautiful system that has streamlined our business.

We spend much of the year traveling, so a cloud-based system is key for us, and Current delivers on this front. Any Internet-connected device (computer, tablet, or phone) can be used to access all functionality of the system. Yes, this means that the speed of the software is subject to the speed of your Internet connection, but I've found Current to still be snappier than other rental management systems that must be accessed via VNC connections. Plus, Current's responsive layout automatically adjusts to the size of your screen.

One of the strengths of Current is the excellent customer service. The staff are friendly, personable, and eager to continually improve the software based on customer feedback. While other rental management software companies seem to penalize customers for asking for help, the team at Current RMS is always available and easy to get a hold of.

Current prevents details from slipping through the cracks, and has enabled us to deliver our signature customer service and attention to detail across larger and simultaneous events. In the first year using it, Current RMS helped our rental revenue grow 60%. The software is delightful to use and the team at Current have been a joy to work with.

2. The support is Awesome! Always available and ready to help and personal, I know the staff and they remember me. Its obvious that the tech support are very knowledgeable and part of a small team not outsourced!

Cons: We work in Hebrew, (right to left) I would be nice if there was more flexibility for right to left languages like Hebrew ( or Arabic) That being said I was able to set up all the documents I need for my customers in Hebrew, so dealing with an English interface is not a problem.

Overall: Working with current has greatly improved our workflow, eliminated all spreadsheets creating a tool our staff is connected too and up to date on every instance.

You really can use Current from anywhere in the world, hey ;-). Thanks for your kind words, Roger! We look forward to having more Hebrew and Arabic companies on board and increasing the flexibility for you.

Not sure how we coped with our old software!

Pros: Tech support is top notch. With my old software, even with a service contract they made me think I was wasting their time. Also the iCal feeds are amazing

Cons: Can't think of anything. In all honesty.

Overall: We moved to Current RMS after being on Rentaldesk Nx for several years. Migration of the data was easy (even allowing for rental desks limitations) The team at current helped me every step of the way.
Tech support is almost instant via a chat icon that's on your dashboard, they have a wishlist so new features are discussed and voted on by the users, allowing for the developers to keep their fingers on the pulse.
In short, I love it....

Recommendations to other buyers: Buy it!

Pros: Great functionality, support and price.

Cons: We are still trying to find the negative points!

Overall: As a company we tested several RM systems and the benchmark was how they compared to CURRENT. Great functionality and easy to use. The service the CURRENT team provide is second to none and very receptive to onward development. The system has allowed us to streamline the rental process and the ability to clone past events is very useful. Being a cloud based system is also useful as staff are able to log in with ease at home and on site. As for price point, you get a premium product for much less then expected.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it - it really does work!

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

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.

Overall: 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 contact, organisation and venue lists.
No you're going to spend hours on these quotes navigating around the site adding all three to the separate lists, then link them.
It's so slow, and this is how every part of the system works, everything is separate and you constantly have to move around the clunky interface to do everything before you can do your initial task.
Saving commonly used requests as templates, nah not really, you can hack your own ways to do it by 'cloning' old 'opportunities' but when yu get busy it's real easy to miss out changing some details to the venue remains the old venue or some other mistake.
If I wasn't the co-owner I'd have been fired long ago as if people show up to pick up gear it's so clunking booking it out I mostly don't get around to it, and remember to allocate, prepare and bookout and check it in again, no you can't skip steps, why would anyone do that?
The developers seem more interested in forcing you to use every new tool they create, it honestly seems like they measure usage of components and issue bonuses accordingly. 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.
Yes venting, yes hate it, yes looking around for other options, any feedback other than gushing praise for Current is appreciated.
Cheers
James

Pros: Ease of implementation and use.

Cons: Availability calendar not currently possible to embed in client facing website but new API may now allow customisation.

Overall: Before we started using Current-RMS most rental systems wanted a site license and server with a large initial outlay. Current-RMS enabled us to get a better system going without that up front cost and a simple per user pricing model. Easy to use, links into our Xero accounts system easily and now with an API so we can start integrating with our website. Great support from the team.

Recommendations to other buyers: You can import your inventory from a spreadsheet easily and the team will help you do that to get going.

Thanks for your great feedback James. You can indeed access product availability information in client facing websites using our new API. We¿ve dropped you a quick message about how to do this. If you do have any more questions, please don't hesitate to contact the support team. They are more than happy to help :)

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!

Overall: 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 because Current has taken the place of the extra office employee we could never afford. Whether it's on the road, at the gig, in the warehouse or in the office. Current always has everything organised and looks absolutely beautiful both from our end, and more importantly from the customer's end.

Current's customer service has been second to none. The Current team even sent us a Christmas present last year - that's how you can know that you're dealing with REAL people on the other end.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you're not sold just trial it, shortly after doing so YOU WILL BE SOLD.

Comments: The team at Current have always been very helpful - the cloud based platform has been really easy to use for all members of the team to use.

We use Current for both hire and sales, it's been great to see the features develop and is really encouraging to see the updates released regularly with functions that are really useful.

We've also just integrated with Xero so are hoping to continue the easy-to-use systems of work that Current has given us.

Comments: Simply put Current RMS has completely changed & modernised the way we do our day to day tasks. Hire stock is maintained more easily, jobs are quicker to input, adjust and raise documents for. It is tailor made to the industry we are in and we wouldn't be without it now.

Added bonus is the staff are always on hand to provide support when needed, which thankfully hasn't been too often!

If I ever have a problem their response rate and helpfulness is 2nd to none, real down to earth useful people!

The software is always changing which is great, listening to the needs of the users and potential clients but without adjusting the price, unless it's for the benefit of the end user!

Comments: If your running a hire business or event production business I would certainly recommend Current RMS... Its a colourful well laid out cloud software you can easily access from your own desktop through a standard web browser or in costa coffee on any other device. You can quickly manage equipment, pull of equipment preparation lists, assign staff to jobs, send invoices to clients and prepare quotations.
There is no complex setting up of servers and the support from Current RMS is superb.
There are constantly adding free updates as suggested and voted by users.

Highly recommended.

Comments: Current has transformed nearly all areas of our business for the better. From the initial quote all the way through the process including the confirmations, invoices, prep, dispatch and return of equipment.

Being cloud based allows us to access the system wherever we are in the country including on events which is very useful.

We now scan in and out of our warehouse each item ensuring that our stock control is much better.

The integration with Xero saves our accountant many hours also!

Overall - we LOVE it and can't recommend it highly enough.
