Second Warehouse, a new, web-based platform essentially designed to speed up the cross-rental process in the pro AV sector, has now made its services available on mobile devices.
Second Warehouse for mobile takes the form of a Progressive Web App (PWA), a new way to access mobile content, which the company claims, offers multiple advantages over app store downloads. The PWA works using your device’s browser, requiring only KBs of space and delivering all the features of the desktop version. However, Second Warehouse said that for the best experience, Android users should use Chrome, Samsung or Firefox browsers, while Apple users should use Safari.
"Having received such an overwhelmingly positive response to the launch of Second Warehouse, we are now very excited to bring all the benefits of the service to your mobile device," commented founder of Second Warehouse and industry veteran Stuart Kerrison. "Now for the first time you can take care of all your cross rental needs and keep your own gear out and working, all while you’re in a field during set-up for a gig! All it takes is two minutes on your phone – it couldn’t be easier."
Second Warehouse for mobile currently supports all models of Android phone as well as iPhone and iPad, with imminent support for Android tablets. Push notifications are available on Android devices, with support from Apple soon to follow.
