Tracking gear that regularly moves in and out of your facility can be a real challenge. Without a formal request and tracking system, how do you know if you have enough equipment to fulfill all of the requests? When will gear be returning? Did it all come back? Did it come back broken? Does the borrower owe late fees?
If any of the above questions above sound familiar, it is time you took a look at the Zeus Equipment Checkout module! The Equipment Checkout module offers many benefits, including accurate tracking your gear via barcode and RFID integration, a reduction or elimination of overbooking equipment with capacity planning tools, reduction equipment loss, improvements to the accessibility to your equipment catalog with web based, self-service tools to allow users to make their own requests, and more.
With a comprehensive feature set and very affordable starting price, it is not a question of if you can afford to have the Zeus Equipment Checkout tool; the real question is can you afford NOT to!
