**web-based Rental Software**
The rental software will be two fold; **the admin section (backend) and the front end** section.
The back end section will be the admin section. This is where all employees should be able to login to set up reservations & rentals for customers, add rental inventory, print rental contracts, print rental invoice and rental receipts, email customer invoice, email customer reminders such as informing them when rental is due or overdue, sending emails/SMS messages to see how their rental is going and see if there is anything we can do and things like that. The rest of the features will be discussed below.
**Front end section:**
The front end section will be an area designed for Hotels and travel agents only. So the front end will function like his and the way the front end should be set up is that when someone logs into the system, say the domain is [url removed, login to view], when they get there the first thing that should be there is for them to log in. Then as soon as they log in they can go ahead and view the products available for rental and book rental for their customers. Kind of like a regular oscommerce, customer account will have history of all their rentals, reservation etc. This way we know which hotel is our highest renter. Each hotel that logs should have a screen to enter the actual customer the rental will be delivered to. I think the script that will be used should have something like this and will be modified accordingly.
The thing with the front end section is that I don't want the prices to be visible unless the hotel logs in. We can either log them in or if the create an account
