How to track business inventory location? Cloud based, no POS, iOS.

Trying to help a friend find a solution. They need a simplistic solution to tracking some office items. They have several demo kits (15) that their team uses. They need a way to see where each kit is at, without having to contact each employee that's out in the field to see who has what.

People are in an out of the office throughout the day/week, so it's hard for any one person to have a grasp. Some of the inventory is used in places where contacting the employee isn't allowed. It does need to be able to sync through the devices, so cloud/server of some sort.
The inventory is pretty constant, and they all eventually return back to the office, these aren't item that are being sold, and there is just one of each item.
Ideally, being able to "checkout" an item from the groups inventory, and then being able to update it's location: In Transit, Hospital, Clinic, University. Doesn't have to be GPS related, but a selectable preset or an updateable field.
What are some options here?
They all use iPhones and iPad's in the field. I could see an online spreadsheet working for this, but they'd really like an App instead of using Safari/Chrome.
Thanks! Let me know if more information would be helpful.
