does the system hold back a percentage of inventory when taking bookings online?
The short answer YES - it can.
Imagine a very busy rental operation. You are taking online bookings and walk-ins. The system is doing a great job of seamlessly merging your online and in-store rental streams without overlap.
But there is no margin for error. Like late returns, breakages, accidents etc.
To cope with this the system can let you:
- specify a percentage to 'hold back' in reserve when talking online bookings.
- let you set this threshold at the category and / or product line level
- alert you when you get close to your limits.
- still take bookings in the back office as you like.
To set this up visit your Fleet Management area:fleet -> manage -> hierarchy management
for each PL you can specify from 0 - 100%(default is zero)
