Signing the Terms and Conditions Agreement is essential for businesses. It ensures that users are following particular protocols when using business assets.
EZOfficeInventory has introduced ‘Agreements’ that can be signed during check out. Businesses can make users and customers sign a set of conditions while checking out items to ensure compliance with regulations during asset usage.
Here’s how a business can benefit from agreements:
- Legal compliance: A user is bound by rules and regulations after they sign the agreement, allowing businesses to ensure they are legally compliant when using the items. For instance, the user is responsible for any damage to the property checked out to them.
- Clarity and understanding: The parties involved i.e., the user and business, are aware of the check out protocols and conditions under which the asset is being checked out. This way, there are no misunderstandings about an asset’s usage which helps reduce the instances of asset misuse.
- Customizability: A business can create custom agreements based on its needs. EZOfficeInventory empowers businesses to design agreements and add terms and conditions of their own choice.
An agreement is an efficient and formal way for businesses to enhance trust between the parties involved.
Let’s show you how to use Agreements in EZOfficeInventory:

For you to sign an agreement, you should enable them from Add-ons. Go to Company Settings & Addons → Agreements → Click on ‘Enable’.
2. Create an agreement
To create an agreement, Go to the dashboard → More → Customize → ‘Agreements’.
You will be redirected to the agreements detail page where you can see the details of all your agreements and make changes to them. To create a new agreement, click on ‘+ Add Agreement’.
Here, the system will allow you to enter details of your agreement, including, its name, action, and page layout.
2.1 Page layout
You can set the page as per your company format.
You can define the terms and conditions that you want to be a part of the agreement. To do this, click on ‘Terms and Conditions’ in the title row. You will be taken to the following page, where you can design the template as per your requirements.
To make the agreement checkbox mandatory across all checkouts, click on ‘Agreement Options’ and tick the ‘Make Mandatory’ checkbox. This way, every time you check out an item, the system will automatically ask you to acknowledge the terms and conditions so they are binding on both the parties.
