We have officially finished Q3, which means the year is truly flying by! Your Rentec Direct team is buzzing with excitement, knowing that the fabulous projects we have telling you about, are finally coming to fruition.
Your development team has been hard at work, both with The Remodel and other projects that will make your software even better. In spite of the hard work our development team has devoted to the redesign’s last stages, they are still hard at work on addressing a number of helpful fixes. In-house, the team refers to smaller updates as a bug fix, QuickFix, HotFix, or issue report, and large updates as Features or Enhancements. Behind the scenes, a lot goes on to make your software the best it can be. While we don’t always report every tiny fix or update to you, but we enjoy providing these highlights so you can rest assured that the development team is always hard at work improving the software for your needs.
Here’s a look at what the Development Team has been working on for Q3 of 2021.

When will the New Design Go Live?
The Rentec Direct Remodel is officially being released in stages. We have already made the remodel available to our clients in the Rentec Direct Insider Program. Feedback has been great, and we have tackled a few unpleasant bugs as a result of our Insiders’ daily testing. We are now releasing the new design to some of our existing clients.
To make certain that your tasks within the software are not interrupted by any unexpected issues, we are taking extra time to ensure that everything is perfect, we are ensuring this seamless transition by trickling our release in stages. Some of our clients have now had the option to experiment with the new design. As we continue the process of mitigating existing clients over to the remodel, you may see a notice on your summary page inviting you to try it out. If you have yet to receive a notice with the option to try it out, you will be on the list as we increase the availability to more of our valuable clients.
If you just can’t wait any longer, contact your success team at firstname.lastname@example.org and they can assist you.
These software updates are the result of valuable feedback and input from our awesome clients. If there is a new feature or a software enhancement you would love to see added to Rentec Direct, let us know.
