Materials can be several things: for example a stage part, audio, light and so on. You can add your own materials and you can add the materials you hire from fellow businesses. The materials can be structured in folders.
Items, fixed cases and kits
We distinguish between three types of materials: an item, a fixed case (flight case) and a kit:
Item: This is a loose material as for example a speaker or a lamp. You can add your own serial number to each item. We call the physical materials ‘individual items’.
Fixed cases (flight cases): A fixed case might be a box with multiple mounted amplifiers. These speakers cannot be rented separately, but only as a fixed case. By adding items to a fixed case the individual items will be removed from stock, to not be rented individually anymore.
Kits: A kit can be a complete DJ set including a turntable, speakers, lighting and so on. The items of this kit may be rented separately.
Example: You have 10 kits, which individually contain one certain CD player. However, when you only have two of these CD players left in your stock you cannot use the other eight kits. If you have both CD players rented individually no full kit will be available.
Tip: Create kits for items you rent in combination with each other very often to make your planning easier. Also materials that have adjusted prices when implemented in combination can be added for an easier and quicker planning.
