I have been keeping my eye on Compiere for a long time
for the "planned" rental & billing tracking feature.
This would be incredibly useful for operations such as
video stores and/or equipment rental. I would be very
interested in implementing a system that enables
equipment (or a class of equipment) to be
booked/reserved over the web (potentially accepting a
payment/deposit in advance). The customers could then
quickly pick-up the equipment at the reserved time,
keep if for their preferred length of time (be it 1
hour, 3 hours, 1 day, etc...), and be billing
accordingly upon the return of the equipment. Instead
of items being "sold" from inventory, they would simply
be checked out for a period of time, with charges
assessed according to how long the equipment was out.
Of course, the un-reserved inventory would still be
available for ad-hoc POS rentals.
Would this be a complex feature to add, or could it be
done fairly easily?
