A surveying and GPS equipment rental service has set it’s “sites” on GoCanvas Mobile Apps to replace paper Rental Checkout Orders on iPads. The company, which has been serving the Midwest’s surveying, construction, and engineering industries for over 100 years is staying ahead of the trend by utilizing a rental checkout app in place of its paper predecessor.

The app collects basic information about the customer, the shipping address, special shipping instructions and details about all the items to be rented.  Their extensive equipment list includes builder’s transit levels, crime scene investigation tools, lasers, magnetic locators scanning devices and theodolites among others. The employee simply enters data for the equipment’s serial number, as well as the monthly, weekly and daily rates for that piece of equipment and any accessories that come with a rental.

The customer can also include any comments in a multiline text field to indicate the condition of the equipment when rented before signing off on the terms and conditions with the touch of a finger.

The equipment rental service has just begun the custom PDF service with GoCanvas, which provides a similar look and feel to their original paper copy. The company opted to go with the custom PDF to provide a more polished (and, no doubt, more impressive) presentation to its customers.
