QR Codes For Contactless Operations
We added QR codes to HQ! The HQ system now has QR codes that allow you to execute multiple actions on the mobile app instantly. There are over ten variables available for QR codes that will trigger different actions. You can add your QR codes to any email template. By scanning a QR code with the HQ mobile app you’ll be taken directly to a reservation’s rental agreement, to the pickup or return step based on the rental status, to a specific vehicle so you can relocate it or update its status, and much more. To find out more on how to obtain QR codes click on the link below.
Demand Based Rates
The HQ system now supports demand-based rate structures. This means that if your utilization increases, you can charge higher rates automatically. For instance, you might charge $40/day for your Economy class on any given day, but when you reach 85% utilization for this vehicle class you can automatically increase the rate to $45/day to optimize your revenue and take advantage of the increased demand. Say goodbye to the hassle of manual adjustments, and hello to simplicity and optimization. For the step-by-step on how to set this up click on the link below.
Knowledge Base migration to Notion
HQ Rental Software is a powerful tool with lots of functionality. This also makes it a complex product because there are so many settings that can be configured in different ways. Documentation is therefore key to take maximum advantage of our powerful framework. We have decided to migrate our Knowledge Base to Notion because it improves overall navigation and search capability. Whether you're connected on a desktop or on your phone, you'll be able to read about HQ as if you are reading a book. Explore the new Knowledge Base now and benefit even more from all the functionality that is available at your fingertips.
