How do I commission new inventory?

This articles outlines the process for commissioning new inventory. This can be done using a handheld scanner or a portal.

Background: Commissioning is the process of adding active inventory to the Laundris platform. It's important that all items are commissioned to ensure accurate inventory management.

Commissioning Using a Handheld Scanner

Decrease the power level to 10 dBm or lower by tapping on the gear icon then adjusting the scanner power slide bar. Next, isolate yourself and the items selected for commissioning from existing active inventory.
