We are excited to announce that our new inventory scanning app will be released soon. Apple has approved our app as a Beta (test) release, and we are doing some final internal testing and working on documentation.
Before we release the new feature, we would like to work with a few stores to test the app and corresponding new RMS program in a retail setting.
Here are the requirements:
- You must have a device running iOS version 8.0 or later to use TestFlight for accessing the beta version. Ideally, this would be an iPhone or iPod Touch. You can use the app on an iPad, but the bulk of the larger unit may make the process a little awkward. Once installed, the app will run on devices using iOS 6.0 or later.
- To speed up the process, you need to have a Bluetooth barcode reader. We have a couple of options to choose from. A standard reader is $139. A heavy duty reader is $299. If you do not use a scanner, you will have to manually enter each product’s item number. Eligibility as a beta test site requires using a Bluetooth scanner.
- You also need a license for the RMS to qScan interface program. Normally, this will sell for $395 for a single user. Beta test stores will be able to purchase a special 2-user license for only $195.
- You must be willing to actually test/use the program during the beta test period.
We are limiting the number of beta tests to five (5) stores on a “first come, first served” basis. If you want to know more or are ready to sign up, please contact Steven at 800.997.6724 (option 1) or click here to email us.
If accepted as a beta test site, you will be sent an invitation from the iTunes store with a subject line of “TestFlight: You’re invited to test RMS qScan 1.0”.
The email will have a link to download the app with the logo shown to the right and the following statement, “You can accept this invitation with the Apple ID that you are currently using. Your Apple ID and the email address to which the invite was sent don’t have to match.” To accept this invitation, you must have TestFlight installed on your iOS device.” Please note that while it is in beta, iTunes doesn’t list the app, so a search for the app will currently yield no results.

P.S. The app only works on iOS devices. We currently do not have versions for Android, Windows, Blackberry or other mobile/tablet systems. We are waiting to see what the response is to the Apple app and the desire for other platforms.
