Flex Rental Solutions, provider of enterprise web-based inventory and rental management software for the AV, event, and production management industry, announces that its Flex5 tablet — the new HTML5 redesign of its software for tablets — has been released to all customers.
Flex5 is the company’s new HTML5 user interface and features a complete rewrite of Flex’s user interface and backend architecture. Flex5 will eventually replace Flex’s current Flash UI by adding phone accessibility along with a new desktop environment.
“We have gained incredible momentum these past several months leading up to the launch of tablet, Flex5 Tablet was a big undertaking,” says Chris Stein, CEO of Flex Rental Solutions, “our approach was to design the user interface to adapt to the device and how people use applications on tablet, phone, and desktop, instead of simply shrinking a desktop environment smaller to fit on a tablet or phone.”
Flex5 Tablet comes with features everyone in the business can use. Account managers can answer inventory availability from anywhere. Users can search, call, text, or get direction to a contact right from Flex5 Tablet. However, Flex5 Tablet has finally freed the warehouse staff from being tethered to large laptops and desktop stations. Users can search and view all inventory and contacts, as well as prep pull sheets, return manifests, create and edit inventory, log maintenance, and more.
“We’ve also added several exciting features like Content Builder, Free Pick Container, Substitution Scans, Non-Serialized Bulk Scanning, and Manifest Signatures – which allows you to capture a customer signature when they receive items on a Manifest,” adds Stein.
Flex Rental Solutions will continue working on Flex5 Tablet and Flex Phone which will mirror the functionality and features of Flex5 Tablet and will work on both Apple and Android devices. The primary focus now will be Flex5 Desktop, with financial document development currently underway.
