SIMPLer Mobile App: Equipment Scanning


The SIMPLer Mobile App now gives the ability to assign equipment that is already in SIMPLer's inventory to a subscriber or a site. Note that a site can also be setup to track a trucks inventory or warehouse inventory.

Accessing the SIMPLer Mobile App:

Note that the App version to SIMPLer is already available to all users of SIMPLer. It can be accessed by clicking on the MOBILE APP button at the
Top Right Hand Corner of the regular desktop version. 
 
First time users of the app can find some documentation at the following link on how to navigate and find customers (https://www.azotel.com/00_Az_Docs/Operator_Manuals/S04-07_SIMPLer_App_Lite_UG.pdf)

Assign equipment that is already in SIMPLer's inventory to a site using the barcode scanner:

Note:
The scanner searches for the equipments MAC address or the serial number as these are unique identifiers to find the specific equipment. Any equipment in the inventory database must have one of these fields set in order for the assignment to work.
