One of the most important reasons for using rental management is the fact that a sales order line that we want to sell to the customer is swapped into one or two transfer orders, which makes it possible to handle the item with standard inventory functionality.

This is what happens in the video

So even though we have some fields on the transfer order to display information on the rental, this is actually a completely standard business central functionality.

So if you use an app for inventory handling or other apps for handling transfer orders, this will be a standard transfer order and applies to all standard inventory functionality.

So thereby, it’s very much easier not to have an extra system in the warehouse to be able to handle item that that is going to be rented out.

So when you post the transfer order, it’s moved to another location and this is how you handle it both inbound and outbound.
