I have a lot of data in several spreadsheets, accounting-programs etc. Do I have to re-enter all this manually in the Rental Management System?

Most probably we can import the information for you. We have experience with importing from many different platforms, so send us an e-mail with more details.

I would like to use my own stationary and my own lay-outs. How can I do that?

The full version (so not the demo-version) comes with a free report-generator, where you can modify all lay-outs. You can add fields, texts, graphics etc. Also, we can customize your lay-outs for you at little cost.

I would like to have a version in my native language. How can we do that, and what are the costs?

This is quite simple for us to do, since all texts are in a database-file. We can send you the file, you supply the translations and we re-compile the program in your own language. This service is FREE!

Can I enter information in the demo-version that can later be used in the official version?

Yes. Simply copy the \files\ and \reports\ directory of the demo-version to another location before installing the official version. After installing, copy the directories back over the new ones.

Too many users logged in

RMS checks how many users are logged in, and checks whether this number does not go over the maximum users allowed. If so, an error message is displayed. It may however occur that you receive this message, even if no other users are logged in. This usually is the case when a user has not shut down windows
correctly, a network error has occoured or the workstation has had a reset.

To solve:
Quit RMS on all worksations.
Restart AND QUIT RMS on all workstations

After this, the usercounter will be reset to zero.
