Once the download is completed, please install the APK (by tapping on the download notification). Allow the installation by agreeing with all steps. If a new version is available, the app will notify you. Update the app in this case.
ACTIVATING MERP WAREHOUSE
mERP Warehouse has a 7-day trial with full features. No need to enter the activation code, it will be activated automatically when the app starts. After 7 days, you will need to enter a license key.
ENSURING EMDK IS AVAILABLE
EMDK (Enterprise Mobility Development Kit) is an API library provided by Zebra (Motorola). This API allows the app to use the device’s scanner.
First of all, you need to check if mERP Warehouse is compatible with your Zebra device.
Check out the full list of devices supported by mERP Warehouse
Run the application, log in to your server or run the demo, and click on the three dots at the upper right-hand corner > About.
Check a status of barcode drivers. There are 2 statuses available:
- Zebra EMDK isn’t available
- Zebra EMDK is available
If the status of the barcode scanner drivers is available, congrats! You don’t do anything more. The scanner is ready to use.
If the status is isn’t available, mERP Warehouse will use the default camera to scan and recognize a barcode. Generally, this status is shown on Android mobile phones. If you see this status on your Zebra device, you probably need to install the update.
Note, if mERP Warehouse shows the status Available, but your device continues to use the built-in camera instead of the hardware laser scanner, please install the update.
