Our Experience with Current RMS

Current RMS has been great for us so far, but we make up for the lack of pretty key features like payment integration, and online booking with lots of hours of extra admin and processes that we'd love to see automated and integrated into Current, to make it streamlined for our customers and free us up to spend time improving our business rather than maintaining it by being buried under lots of computer time.

PROS

Current RMS provides our company with a great asset management tool and the necessary systems to ensure that stock is managed well by our team and delivered properly to our clients.

CONS

It would be great to see a credit card payment link integrated into the invoices produced by Current, much like Xero integrates a payment link using Stripe on the invoices it produces. This would reduce steps in the workflow for our administration team and reduce confusion with our customers. Currently we have to post an invoice in current and then generate another invoice in Xero to create a credit card payment link when our customers want to pay that way. Another issue that would be great to see resolved is part payments. When a customer pays a deposit and it is credited towards the invoice, it would be ideal if the next invoice that is generated automatically takes what has been paid and applies it to the invoice so that when the outstanding amount invoice is generated, it shows the amount left owing automatically. Currently it seems that it needs to be worked out manually. Another feature that we are desperate to see is website integration for online bookings. Currently we have a website that accepts equipment orders, then we get the order and have to manually add it to Current RMS. The issue is that customers can't check if the product is actually available before booking, can't book for multiple days and have to wait for us to check and confirm the order after we've manually done it on Current. We would gladly pay more for the service if this feature was integrated, much like what Booqable offers, but with the features that Current provides.

Reason for choosing Current RMS

Referral from industry friends who use Current to manage their event businesses.

Reasons for switching to Current RMS

We needed more accurate asset management and check in and out processes to ensure stock is returned and managed properly, not being double booked etc.

Enjoying our experience but room for improvement

Overall we are very happy with current-rms and the few cons are vastly outweighed by the pros of the system. It's a good fit for our company and it's been a pleasure to use for these past ~5 years.

PROS

The UI and UX on current-rms is fantastic and very intuitive. It's very easy for us to onboard new hires onto the system and the support materials and tutorials online are good. It has a good level of functionality for our needs and does almost everything we need to operate our business. The cloud based design is also very convenient and the ability to customize documents within the software ourselves is very appreciated. It is also great to see new features and improvements consistently implemented. It's a joy to use everyday!

CONS

My biggest area of frustration with current-rms are with the inventory checking module and functionality, while it does work it's very bare bones and when we do our annual inventory check it's constantly causing us headaches and we often have to use other tools simultaneously (spreadsheets, documents etc.) to properly keep track of where we are in the inventory check process. The way the inventory module is laid out makes it very difficult to look up the status of a specific item during an inventory check. My other frustration is the lack of custom reports, you can create custom fields and lists of values, however reporting on those is not possible, we had to hire an outside developer to implement a tool via the API in order to achieve the full functionality we needed for our business. The software would be pretty much perfect in my mind if it had a robust inventory checking module and the ability to do custom reporting.

Reason for choosing Current RMS

I really appreciated the great UI/UX design on current-rms and by using the free trial I was able to quickly determine it would meet almost all our needs. The integrations with quickbooks and the open API were also selling features for us.

Reasons for switching to Current RMS

Studio Suite's rental module was a frankenstein mess and when I started at the company one of my first priorities was to switch us to a more robust system that met all our needs and would allow us to grow in the future. Current-rms met those needs.

we need more functionality without waiting for peer review

not enough

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.

Vendor Response

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

Keep up the development.

Overall I am happy with Current-RMS. Stability is good. Support is

PROS

I like Current-RMS for rental, but what they do good is to make use of strong integration partners and not try to invent everything themselves.

CONS

There has been a long period of no development and new features. It seems to be picking up now. Some obvious functions are still not in there. They are on the 'under consideration' list but would love to see them released.

Reason for choosing Current RMS

Current covered the most important features needed and the import and export functions are very open.

Reasons for switching to Current RMS

We moved from our own server based software to cloud based.
